Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Scoliosis is a deformity of the spine that can be recognised as

    • A.

      A lateral 's' shaped curvature of the spine

    • B.

      A humped area at the top of the spine

    • C.

      An inward curve of the lumbar region of the spine

    • D.

      An outward curve of the lumbar region of the spine

    Correct Answer
    A. A lateral 's' shaped curvature of the spine
    Explanation
    Scoliosis is a deformity of the spine that is characterized by a lateral 's' shaped curvature. This means that when viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to have a curve that resembles the letter 's'. The other options listed, such as a humped area at the top of the spine or inward/outward curves of the lumbar region, do not accurately describe the characteristic curvature of scoliosis.

    Dermatitis is a non-infectious condition of the skin caused by contact with an irritant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dermatitis is a non-infectious condition of the skin that occurs when the skin comes into contact with an irritant. This irritant can be a chemical, substance, or even certain fabrics. The reaction can cause redness, itching, and inflammation of the skin. Since dermatitis is caused by contact with an irritant and not by an infection, the statement that dermatitis is a non-infectious condition of the skin caused by contact with an irritant is true.

    A feeling of well-being is a                      effect of stone therapy.

    Correct Answer
    psychological
    Explanation
    Stone therapy is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of heated or chilled stones to promote relaxation and relieve muscle tension. The correct answer, "psychological," suggests that the feeling of well-being experienced during stone therapy is related to the mind and emotions rather than any physical effects. This implies that the stones themselves do not directly cause the feeling of well-being, but rather the overall experience and relaxation provided by the therapy.

    Which of the following is an effect of the application of cold stones?

    • A.

      Calming of sensory nerve endings

    • B.

      Stimulating and toning

    • C.

      Vaso-dilation of the capillaries

    • D.

      Softens and relaxes the muscles

    Correct Answer
    B. Stimulating and toning
    Explanation
    The application of cold stones has a stimulating and toning effect on the body. Cold stones can help increase blood circulation and stimulate the nervous system, resulting in a rejuvenating and invigorating effect. This can help improve the overall tone and vitality of the body.

  • 5. 

    Which of the following would restrict a hot stone massage treatment?

    • A.

      Impetigo

    • B.

      Scar tissue under 6 months old

    • C.

      An elderly client with fragile bones

    • D.

      Tinea corporis

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Scar tissue under 6 months old
    C. An elderly client with fragile bones
    Explanation
    Scar tissue under 6 months old would restrict a hot stone massage treatment because the heat from the stones could potentially cause further damage to the delicate and healing scar tissue. An elderly client with fragile bones would also be restricted from a hot stone massage as the pressure and heat from the stones could potentially lead to fractures or injuries. Impetigo and tinea corporis are skin conditions that may be contagious, but they would not necessarily restrict a hot stone massage treatment.

    Stone massage for men can usually be deeper due to the amount of muscle tissue.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because men generally have a higher muscle mass compared to women. This means that during a stone massage, the therapist can apply more pressure and go deeper into the muscle tissue to provide a more effective massage for men.

    An expected contra-action to stone therapy is erythema which is caused by                                  of the capillaries.

    Correct Answer
    Vasodilation
    Explanation
    Erythema is a redness of the skin that occurs due to the dilation of capillaries. Vasodilation is the widening of blood vessels, which allows more blood to flow through them. When the capillaries in the skin widen, it leads to increased blood flow and subsequently causes erythema. Therefore, vasodilation is the expected contra-action to stone therapy that causes erythema.

    A dark, smooth and dense volcanic rock used for hot stone massage.

    • A.

      Marble

    • B.

      Marine

    • C.

      Basalt

    • D.

      Precious stones

    Correct Answer
    C. Basalt
    Explanation
    Basalt is a dark, smooth, and dense volcanic rock that is commonly used for hot stone massage. It has excellent heat retention properties, allowing it to retain heat for extended periods of time. Its smooth texture makes it ideal for gliding over the body during a massage, providing a soothing and relaxing experience. Additionally, basalt is known for its therapeutic benefits, as it can help relieve muscle tension and promote relaxation. Therefore, basalt is the correct answer for the given question.

    Which of the following ethnic skins ages slower and has a thicker epidermis?

    • A.

      Caucasian

    • B.

      African-Caribbean

    • C.

      Asian

    Correct Answer
    B. African-Caribbean
    Explanation
    African-Caribbean skin ages slower and has a thicker epidermis compared to Caucasian and Asian skin. This can be attributed to the higher levels of melanin present in African-Caribbean skin. Melanin provides natural protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation, which can accelerate skin aging. The thicker epidermis in African-Caribbean individuals also helps to retain moisture and maintain a more youthful appearance.

    Which of the following stones can be used for cold stone massage?

      Marble

    • B.

      Precious stones

    • C.

      Basalt

    • D.

      Marine

    Correct Answer
    A. Marble
    Explanation
    Marble can be used for cold stone massage because it has natural cooling properties. When chilled, marble stones can help reduce inflammation, soothe sore muscles, and provide a refreshing sensation to the skin. The smooth surface of marble stones also allows for easy gliding and manipulation during the massage, enhancing the overall experience for the client.

    Thrombosis can be described as a raised varicose vein.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Thrombosis cannot be described as a raised varicose vein. Thrombosis refers to the formation of a blood clot within a blood vessel, which can obstruct the flow of blood and potentially lead to serious complications. On the other hand, varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisted veins that usually occur in the legs. While both conditions involve issues with blood vessels, they are distinct and not interchangeable. Therefore, the statement is false.

    The alternate application of hot and cold stones has which of the following effects?

    • A.

      Decongesting

    • B.

      Relaxing

    • C.

      Calms sensory nerves

    Correct Answer
    A. Decongesting
    Explanation
    The alternate application of hot and cold stones can have a decongesting effect. This is because the hot stones help to dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, while the cold stones constrict blood vessels and reduce inflammation. This alternating temperature therapy can help to alleviate congestion by improving circulation and reducing swelling in the affected area.
