Complications from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) kill more people in the United States per year than AIDS and breast cancer combined.A client with this potentially life-threatening condition rarely knows or reports to their therapist that they have DVT. What is more likely to happen is that a client visits a massage therapist hoping he or she can "work out" the intense pain in their leg.
In this course, massage therapists will learn how to recognize the symptoms and risk factors associated with deep vein thrombosis and to distinguish a muscular problem from a much more dangerous scenario.
This course is a 'must have' for all massage therapists!

One of the highest quality CEU home courses I've taken. Will be back for more. This important information is clearly defined and to the point. Thank you for a great class.

Great course. Precise and informative. Makes me feel more prepared for working with my clients.
- R. Laurence, LMT, NCTMB
I think your concise and condensed format was fantastic and the assessment form was a great plus! This will surely become part of my new client intake information as well as give me an edge in educating those at risk and referring them for further medical attention when warranted.

First time doing an online continuing ed course. The program was very thorough and I was impressed with the course content. Liked the fact that there was no test to send back and waiting for a certificate to arrive in the mail. Highly recommended!

This is a very valuable and informative course. All Massage Therapists should understand and review this information regularly.
- J. Reynolds, LMT
Thank you for offering this course - it is very important for my own private practice - this condition is very common and is a death risk (unknown) to a lot of my clients - and can be fatal. All LMTs need to know and recognize symptoms and health risks prior to massage. Again, thank you!
