Excellent review of digestive and endocrine pathologies! This information is important for every therapist to know. Would definitely recommend this course for anyone looking for a good refresher on these topics.
Carol Nadasen, LMT
This course was informative. The most helpful parts to me were those that described symptoms clients may present.... especially pain referral! Diabetes is such a prevalent disease. It would be helpful to learn more specific contraindications with its symptoms. Most diabetic clients have already seen a primary care practitioner and are looking for pain relief with massage. I was hoping for more specific indications and contraindications for the wide variety of endocrine and digestive disorder symptoms. Thank you for a fun and thorough review of the systems. I learned something new!
Heidi Mayo, LMT
Wow! This exceeded my expectations! I had a great refresher and found that after I had done what I thought was a mock test after reading the printed book that it was the actual test!! I was so happy to find that out and as weird as this sounds, cannot WAIT to study and complete my next test!
S. Page, LMT
This was a great adjunct. I have a lot of clients who are diabetic as well as have some of the other disorders studied in this program. It gave me more of a affirmation that I am on the right track in caring for my clients. This class will help give me more credibility within my medical community.
Glenda S. Bly, LMT
Think I enjoyed this course the most! I find the endocrine and digestive systems amazing, and found the information to be very insightful. As a post-menopausal woman, a lot of the symptoms and dysfunctions hit home!
