What my Favorite Pathologist has to say:
Updated: Aug 22
Okay I know it might just sound strange but:
Yes..I have a favorite pathologist. In NYS to become a licensed massage therapist we have a pretty rigorous curriculum that includes a lot of science. In fact we take Pathology I and II, along with Eastern pathology. We are also required to do a fairly intense pathology research project to get final credit to graduate.
Ruth Werner is the pathologist who wrote the text book we used for class. I have never valued a text book like that one, often going back to learn about our client's medical issues and how massage can directly help or harm. I've taken a number of her continuing education classes in person and online.
