Hi Marla
I would think that many massage courses would deal with these issues as they are most common. I certainly deal with them in my Fijian Massage classes. I will be teaching in Portland Oregon February 19-28, 2010 and Spokane, WA mid March (details soon). Feel free to have a look at my web page www.fijianmassage.com. Cheers, Lolita
