Taking into consideration Moxie's past history-

Also the way she showed signs of slure speech by answering questions in single syllables or after with no response. Her eyes were also moving abnormally. It is important to turn Moxie on her side on massage table( unless you feel necessary and are capable of bring client to the floor) due to the fact she is having a mild seizure. Remain as calm as possible, remain with Moxie until seizure has ended. Keep track of duration of seizure , once its ended .Chantell should ask Moxie a few simple questions(such as name&location). Check for any type of injury if any provide assistance. However, call 911 if seizure lasted more then 5 mins, repeats immediately or cannot come out of seizure. Chantelle can call 911 for help.

It would also be good to file incident in her file.

More then just an accident:

No,Marget should not continue with the massage. Yes Marget should ask about the red circles on skin.

It would be good to ask client during assessment of any concerns, questions, or comments regarding to massage before begining. Taking a look at canvas before massaging the location is good because then red circles are noticed pause before massage. After noticing the red circles then Marget could nicely mention she noticed the physical appearance of his back. Marget can describe that she sees red slightly elevated red circles and at the time also noticed a slight smell. After informing the client, Marget could ask Mark if he was aware. Marget then showed her concern and is talking to Mark to get more info. and could ask if Mark hasnt seen phyisican to get it checked out , let it heal, and return back for massage therapy.

If I were Margret I would hold off on massaging this client due to the local contraindication. I would confirm with the clients physician that these dark red circles are not harmful for the client or the therapist. Once I receive confirmation, I will then proceed with the massage. I would then suggest that Margret writes in her notes that the clients injury is due to the reason of her refusal to the session.

I think Nicki is having a hard time adjusting to her body mechanics because her table could be the wrong height, her body mechanics themselves may be off, or she could be tired from the improperly managed schedule of 7 massages in 6 hours; she doesn't have a lot of time for a break. There is a difference in body mechanics with a chair as opposed to a table. Your always having to readjust your body mechanics. Longer sessions could make the therapist's body mechanics sloppy for the fact that they need their breaks in between so they are not too tired to perform ineffectively. My suggestions for Nicki moving forward would be for her to make sure she has a properly managed break in between sessions adjust to the chair properly, adjust to the table properly.

******Techniques I feel are most benefical for Adrienne are doing some regular stretching with therapist or on her own, drinking plenty of water, getting a massage as least twice to four times a month, spending more time on her back and neck during session, and motivating her to use more of these self care techniques. *******Contraindications to be aware of are potential blood clots and circulation in her legs/feet area.*******I feel Jeremy does not have to wait for doctors approval. Since massage is overall benefical of the client and the therapist is aware of the contraindications then it should be fine. Adrienne's physican also referred her to get a massage.

I think Nikki is having such a hard time adjusting her body mechanics because of the difference in client massage. It could be that when she switched to table massage she did not prepare herself or her setting for the next client. With doing either seated or table massage body mech. is important. It's necessary to remember the foot shall make contact with the three points( triangle) this formation makes transfer of a load easier.I would suggest to Nikki to stretch inbetween sessions,60-second energizer, and try and remember body mechniques because wheather its a short or long massage if you have incorrect body mech. your body will feel it.

I would think techniques for Adrienne that would work that you wouldn't go wrong with would be effleurage and petrissage. Those forms of massage wold be good for her because it would help ease her pain in her neck, shoulders, and lower back. Relax her nervous during her wait, improve circulation, and improve her digestion system. Since Adrienne does have several health problems it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a release form from her physician on file. As far as caution sice she gets light headed easily it would be important to be as helpful as possible after her session and during any movement.

Alice should not address the tax return situation at the Massage Therapy location. She should call the accountants office and request an appointment to discuss a concern she has. By doing this she respects having a therapist realthionship with the client. A personal issue outside of work with client shall not be brought into the work enviroment. If the situation can not be resolved in a kindly manner it would be best to terminate the therapetic realthionship.

1.**** If I were Tiffany I would approach Suzanne and Juanita pleasantly asking nicely if they had seen an expensive platinum silver ring in the massage room at any time? 2.**** If I were Tiffany I would give Rebecca my ethical empathy and reassurance towards her situation. I would also make sure to comfort her and reassure her we will be in contact if anything comes up. 3.**** If I were Rebecca, I would tell Tiffany how appreciative I am for her compassion in my time of need. I would also make sure to take her number down and tell Tiffany to keep in contact with me til we find a resolution.

**PROS: 1.) Both are aimed towards a health goal. 2.) Sally's study performed the same treatment for each patient and same therapist. 3.) Sally's treatment resulted in more relief in back pain for her patients. 4.) Harold's acupuncture treatment used Chinese medicine 5.) Harold's experiment had a 60 percent success rate of back pain relief. **CONS: 1.) Harold's experiment and Sally's experiment are two different practices working towards the same goal. 2.) Harold's experiment lost 19 people due to patients doctors rejecting the treatment. 3.) Sally's experiment was conducted for 1 month as apposed to Harold's being conducted for 24 months. 4.) Sally's experiment had less patients than Harold's experiment. 4.) Harold's experiment had an unsuccessful rate of 30% and 10% having said they had more pain than before **Elements in experiments: With Sally's experiment being based off massage practice and Harold's experiment being based of Acupuncture practice; both results will vary differently. These are two different natural health practices. Massage therapy serves a different purpose than Acupuncture, therefore varying the results. **Massage Therapy for back pain: 1.) Increased blood flow to tissues. 2.) Increased blood circulation. 3.) Decreased tension in muscles 4.) Improves flexibility 5.) Reduces pain 6.) Can improve sleep 7.) Increase endorphin levels in brain 8.) Can ease depression and anxiety **Alternative treatment for back pain: 1.) pain medications 2.) self care "physical exercise" 3.) Therapies 4.) Medical procedure 5.) Specialist **How I would improve Sally and Harold's study: Since Sally's study had a better success rate, I will base more of my ideas off of hers. First, I would get the three of us together to conduct a group plan on how each experiment will be similarly conducted. Then, I would want each experiment to have the same number of patients, same doctor, same treatment, and pharmaceuticals recorded 40 minutes after each session/treatment. Third, I would want each experiment to be conducted for one month each. If I were to submit the study I would explain the results of the experiment, I would tell the ethical truth because I feel the outcome is reliable. I want clients to know they are getting the truth from me and that I am handling the situation professionally and with the upmost consideration to their health.
