February

The Aging Cardiovascular System and Massage Therapy
Debra Curties, RMT
Guelph ON, February 22, 2016

This course on aging will spotlight the heart and blood vessels. It will begin with an overview of the cardiovascular structures and how they are affected by healthy and unhealthy aging processes. We will consider factors affecting blood pressure and how they shift with age. Next the focus will move to atherosclerosis/coronary artery disease, hypertension, and tissue health effects of CV dysfunction. We will highlight an exploration of the causes and progression of chronic congestive heart failure and ways in which this process correlates with aging. The role of changing elements such as a weakening heart, higher pressures, less elastic arteries and less efficient capillary dynamics will be folded into considering how this knowledge influences the massage therapist in clinical practice. With an aging population, it is increasingly important to understand how cardiovascular concerns can raise significant considerations about appropriate intake judgments and safe and effective treatment planning. We will explore such questions in a case-based discussion format.

 

Debra Curties has been a massage therapist since 1984, and has been teaching Pathology and Clinical Theory to massage therapy students since 1987.

May

Aging and the Tissues
Debra Curties, RMT
Guelph ON, May 9, 2016

This workshop on aging will explore how the body tissues are affected by normal aging. The focus will be on skin, bones, muscles, joints and fascia, with consideration of the supports, such as cardiovascular function and immunity, that directly affect the capacity of these tissues to maintain, replenish and heal. We will explore the concept of healthy aging versus unhealthy aging, and consider the common types of age-related conditions (for example, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis) that a massage therapist encounters. We will conclude with a pragmatic discussion of how the knowledgeable massage therapist plans and adapts treatment in relation to age-related changes in body tissues, and the cautions and red flags that need to be part of this clinical thought process.
