18 Hour CE Course
Already own the text Massage Therapists Guide to Pathology or the DVD Anatomy & Pathology for Bodyworkers? Call us at 1-800-364-5722, 9am to 5pm, to discuss your enrollment options.
Explore the various systems of the body while examining common conditions and illnesses so you can then more effectively help your clients. Knowledge of pathology helps you as a bodywork professional, to know when massage is contraindicated and when to refer your clients to another health care provider.
Through this video- and text-based course, you will be able to familiarize yourself with the common conditions and illnesses you may encounter.
Musculoskeletal, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine and digestive system disorders are investigated. Some of the afflictions discussed in the course include: fibromyalgia syndrome, spasms and cramps, strains and sprains, joint disorders, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated disc, thoracic outlet syndrome, Parkinson's Disease, headaches and seizure disorders, heart conditions, and bronchitis.
Wow! This is the best CE class I have ever taken! I really thought I knew my anatomy well, and I did, but I had a very poor understanding of pathologies. I have the Merck manual and it doesn't begin to illuminate the massage relevance as your text does. I will always refer to this book, and I thank you, thank you, thank you for this reference guide. I couldn't tell you enough positive!
L. Vick, LMT
Both the CD Rom and DVD were fabulous tools for those of us who are visual. What a great reference manual!
D. Kelleher, LMT
Finally a complete book especially designed for massage therapists and bodyworkers. The material in the book was amazing, detailed and very informative. I will be using the textbook daily for my geriatric clients. Thank you for the mental stimulation and the challenging quiz. I enjoyed this course tremendously.
D. Gifford, NCMT, AMTA
Very detailed and also very informative on the types of massage that are indicated for different disease/symptoms. This is the first text that has so much valuable information categorized by disease. This will be a valued reference for many years.
D. Jenkins, LMT, NCTMB, ABMP
I was pleasantly surprised with the textbook! This book is loaded with valuable information with an "easy to comprehend" text. Wonderful material - I will strongly recommend it to my coworkers.
S. Johnson, LMT, NCTMB

I am in the business of cosmetology and massage education. I am very impressed with this course. It has helped me in my massage practice as well as in the classroom. I will definitely be looking at the other courses this site offers.

The course was very helpful and allowed me to complete in my own time.
Stephanie Juarez, LMT
Being able to print out the test in advance and use to study the relevant chapters was awesome! I also feel like you did an outstanding job testing from every section. I can use the DVD as an overview or review with my class since I teach Pathology and Anatomy and Physiology! I enjoyed it very much. Thanks.
Kathryn R. Donnelly, LMT
Great course. Learned so much.

The text is one that I don't want to put down! It will be placed on my treatment room desk, and not stuck on the shelf. Thank you for an incredibly informative course! Deb
Deborah A. Schick, BS
Easy to read and understand. Love the massage Therapy implication boxes with each section, will be helpful in my daily practice. The video was informative and well explained. Felt the course was worth my time and money.
Great course. Love the online format and text was really clear with lots of pictures/graphics and very well laid out. Really happy with the course, far exceeded my expectations and super useful for my practice. Thank you!
Wonderful course full of useful information. Certainly recommend. Thank you!
Stress-free test. I took my time to review the practice test which made it so easy to take the actual one. I loved video presentations. It's general but very important to review. The person who commented the video speaks very clear which is helpful for me as for an English second language student.
This course was awesome and easy to understand. I loved it and would reccomend it to others.
Chelsey Babcock, LMP
This is an excellent course, and the materials provide an excellent reference library for further study.
Rachel Goldstein, LMT
I must thank the staff who answer the phone and are always so polite and helpful. Because of them, I am a customer. This class and materials are excellent and will remain most helpful in my practice. The DVD is so well done and gives an excellent overview. I will watch it many times over. (I would be interested in other classes with a DVD such as this.) Thank you so much for a great class.
Lou A. Dwyer, CMT
This course was fascinating and challenging. Great video, and amazing text book. I learned a lot, and intend to continue to draw on the book for reference. Thank you!!
