I found this course particularly helpful in that I am contemplating a move to a more specialized field of massage. Geriatrics and hospice care are two areas I am most interested in at this point. This course was helpful.

Enjoyed the course and the information it provided. Very useful for many walks of life and not just the elderly as stroke can happen to even the younger generations. knowing the signs.....vital to the outcome of a stroke client. Time equals tissue and damage done.

I was glad this was an available course. Just today I worked on a geriatric woman who had a whole mess of issues and was on blood thinners and blood pressure medications. The massage was only a half hour and I am glad it was only that after reading how it may have caused her some issues had it been longer. Thank you!

I liked the way the information was specifically geared toward massage therapy. The complex information was presented in a way that was logical and easy to understand. The information on identifying a stroke was extremely valuable. I have had that experience and did exactly what the program had said to do. It helps everyone to be prepared.
