Covid: Understanding The Infection, Long Covid, And The Massage Therapy Adaptations
Saturday, 4/6/24, 8:00am-12:00pm, 4 CEs
This class is designed to help massage therapists gain the understanding of the cumulative effect of having Covid, the effect on multi-organ systems in the body, and the long-term effects of living with long Covid/PASC. The U.S. Government Accountability Office in May of 2022 released that up to 23 million Americans are suffering from long Covid. With these alarming numbers, considerations need to be taken with the complexity of the diagnosis to understand how massage is beneficial for those longhaulers. Post-Covid Care Centers created throughout the US are recommending integrative, functional, and allopathic medicine, along with massage, to help longhaulers manage their symptoms.
