Chapter 15 Compare and Contrast Massage Chairs

Tools are important in every trade so choosing a massage table is important. Buying a massage table may seem like the most basic of tools but they are not all created equal. First of all you will want to choose the right type for your needs. 

  The options include: Portable massage tables which fold up and are lightweight enough to transport anywhere.So if you travel to peoples homes or office this would be a great choice ( theses are typically more affordable than other types). They can be loud to assemble and not sturdy enough for larger clients.

Stationary tables are the kind that are found in therapists office and for good reason, they are heavy and stay in one place.Hydraullic tables as well but these tables should be considered if your clients are older or have dissabilities or stuggle to get on a table.

So once you decide on the type of table then you need to consider between wood or aluminum frame. The table should be a width of 29-31 and a hight of 20-36 inches is standard.

Chapter 14: Pain Taxonomy

Pain is the body's way of telling us that something is not quite right. A massage therapist can use pain as a starting point to assess the root cause of a person's discomfort, including possible tissue damage. Understanding pain terminology will be helpful in asking questions to dig deeper and gather relevant information for the development of an appropriate treatment plan.

By reviewing all the different types of Pain, I can now help my clients.The understanding of how it begins, how my touch and pressure is efffecting the client and the perception of how different types of pain occur makes a big difference in how important it is to assess them to the fullest by asking them a lot of questions to get to the root of their pain.

Chapter 9: Good Samaritan Law

The website in the book is no longer valid, so I did an internet search on the Good Samaritan Law. If a trained individual administers emergency care without a fee to someone in good faith, they shall not be held liable should they cause injuries or death, as long as there is no willful or wanton misconduct.
