With Instructor Debbie Romano


Course Description:

Why do women make up about eighty percent of the fifty million Americans suffering from autoimmune diseases? How can a simple stomach bug lead to an autoimmune disease? What are five steps we can take now to reduce the likelihood of developing an autoimmune disease?
This course will discuss four common autoimmune diseases, possible events leading up to an autoimmune disease, and what current therapies are being used to help treat them. In this class we will discuss how the body is affected by autoimmune diseases and what causes these diseases to flare-up.
We will discuss some of the common medications used and the caution needed for clients who take them. We will list precautions and contraindications to take when preparing a session for a client with an autoimmune disease. By the end of this course, students will have the tools needed to feel confident in providing a massage for a client with these four common autoimmune diseases.
