RE: Questions in practical - answers reqd - help please!

Hi

Not sure about the other 2, but you have a towel under the knees when the client has a bad back or back pain, it helps alleviate the pressure a little.

As for a client having a toned body, the massage is going to be deeper and more defined because you are working against the muscles and tissues, rather than layers of fat.

RE: Questions in practical - answers reqd - help please!

Ta for that. For why wouldn't you massage a client in a prone position - talked with my tutor and she said you can massage in the prone position if you lift the foot but can say perhaps it wouldn't be as good for the client.

Questions I was asked
How does massage on the abdomen aid digestion
What would I do if a client fainted

Other people asked questions about location of muscles (part the legs) benefits of strokes, how massage would help oedema, contraindications etc.

One thing our examiner said is that we asked too much 'are you ok, is that comfortable etc), think our group may have overcompensated but still a tad annoying that we would have got marked down on client care for something we were advised by our tutor to do.

Also we had timed our massage for 1 hour as advised by our tutor but the examiner wondered why we had all taken so long as she said it was only 45 minutes!

Hitches aside happily all our class passed, there were only a couple of credits given in the class though and a few people only just scraped a pass! Beware of shiny happy sweet examiners who are hard as nuts underneath!!

RE: ITEC Holistic Massage Exam

Sat my holistic massage exam tonight.

These are some questions came up that I can remember.

1. What was the name of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists previously. (Society of Trained Masseuses, Chartered Society of Massage etc)

2. What was massage used for during the two world wars? (Improve circulation, to treat nerve injury, to treat bullet wounds etc)

3. System of the body which has an indirect benefit of massage (nervous, digestive, respiratory etc)

Can't remember any others at the mo - my head is still trying to recover. Some of the questions our class felt there was 2 possible answers. Lots of qustions regarding muscles and tension in muscles. Plus questions that have appeared on the site previously

Hope this helps

RE: ITEC Holistic Massage Exam

By Hugo Cornwall

Prof Conduct and Bus Awareness

Consumer Protection Act: The answer would be C, as it applies to 'services',

quote:

Part III of the [1987] Act regulates price indications for goods, services, accommodation, or facilities. Businesses must not give consumers misleading price indications. A Code of Practice for Traders on Price Indications has been published by the Department of Trade and Industry, as a guide to good standards. Compliance with the Code may give a trader a defence to a prosecution for a misleading indication.

If you are supplying a 'product', which tends to be regarded by the Act as a material good, the service element being, in my experience virtually unenforcable under the act as it stands, then answer would be B, with a secondary importance on C... The question is unbelievably badly worded, since the Act is summarised commonly as follows:-

quote:

Provides for liability for damage caused by defective products

Provides for the protection and safety of consumers by enabling Regulations/Orders to be made controlling consumer goods

Prohibits the supply of unsafe goods

Provides powers for seizing and forfeiture of unsafe goods

Provides powers to suspend the sale of suspected unsafe goods

Provides powers to require persons to publish notices warning consumers of unsafe goods previously supplied

Prohibits misleading price indications.

Ah, BCS Code of Conduct, Professional Ethics and Legal Requirements... a marvellous thing!

So, what is it... taking the prima facie question, I'd say tell 'em its B and be damned
