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.

There are many types of massage techniques that are very beneficial. One of the most popular is Swedish massage  in which works by stimulating circulation. The technique is gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize the client. An example would be a technique called Effleurage which is smooth, gliding strokes that help relax tissue. With a more rhythmic pressure there is shiatsu massage. This form of massage  uses finger pressure in a varied , thythmic pressure  on the body.The points mentioned are called acupressure for the flow of the body's vital energy. Proponents say Shiatsu massage can help relieve blockages at those points.

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.

Tuskee syphilis study is an unethical study. It had no permission in the first place to be giving anyone vaccinations no matter the circumstance. The study was conducted between 1932/1972 and it's purpose was to find a way to make marines more of a sick war machine for combat rather than to cure syphilis.

The effects of gliding & effleurage are relaxing or mechanical depending on the pressure/depth/rhythm of stroke. Effleurage is responsible for muscle relaxation and increased blood circulation. If you are gliding slow and light you are creating relaxation for your client. Gliding your hands fast or deeper pressure then it is more of a mechanical effect to your clients body.

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.

Due to unfortunate events such as the Tuskegee syphilis study conducted between 1932-1972 there was laws created to protect individulas involved in research studies. This event involved African American men that were given false information in order to gain knowledge of a study done by the U.S. Public Health Service and Tuskegee University also joined with this study. It is crazy to believe such people were so falsly informed. The men were told they were receiving free health care from the United States government, told the study would be within 6 months yet lasted 40 years.Also after funding for treatment ended reading this you would think think thankfully it all can end but no they STILL continued the study without informing the men that they would never be treated. Through out the years the men were never told they had a disease. This whole study was just so unethical and thankfully whistlebower Peter Buxtun help create major changes. After the ordeal , laws were created to protect participants in studies. Participants after laws were out were then given communication of diagnosis, accurate test results, and before anyhing had the right to an informed constant.
