One should think of massage therapy as natural medicine. It falls into the category of alternative medicine, but loses the spotlight to other more intriguing therapies, such as acupuncture and yoga. Although it's not as glamorous, massage should be considered as the very first therapy when it comes to treating pain in the body. Here's why...




Editor's Note from David Burrows: I love this video that shows both physical massage and energy work integrated into lomilomi massage (lomilomi is a Hawaiian massage, traditionally called lomi,  per Wikipedia – meaning "to rub, press, squeeze, massage; to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat"). Notice how the therapist appears to be working in the energy field or aura around the body as well as in the muscular tissue.

The need for compassionate care of our elders is growing. In the United States, people 85 years and older make up the fastest growing segment of our population. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, by 2030 there will be 71.5 million adults over age 65 in the United States. Many elders are affected by debilitating illness or injury and require the assistance of a care setting to help manage their everyday lives...



by Coach Cary Bayer

I was recently teaching a series of classes in our nation’s capital and, wanting to get a banana and an apple for a snack, went into a Giant grocery store in Silver Spring, Maryland. Unlike just about every other supermarket and retail outlet that I’ve ever been in throughout this vast nation of ours, it didn’t have a customer relations department. That’s because this Giant has actually awakened its own inner giant: it has a Solutions Center. The difference between the two is indeed quite palpable. Customer relations is a service that stores offer, solutions are what customers truly desire...




Editor´s Note from David Burrows: Just watching this brief video helps me relax.

Massage & Bodywork

by Sarina Stone, Certified Universal Tao Instructor

I began studying the Universal Tao methods of self-transformation in the early 1990’s. Within 3 years, I found myself at a 3-week intensive Chi Nei Tsang workshop that began in Berkley, California and finished at a beautiful retreat center in Santa Cruz...


Editor's Note from Suzanne Getz: It is important to understand the benefits of abdominal massage. Too often this part of the body is overlooked in traditional massage and this article helps to open our minds to Chi Nei Tsang.




Editor's Note from Kyana Miner: Tension headaches can occur at the most inconvenient moments. Practicing self-massage to relieve stress from the muscles in the face and head is a great way to prevent and alleviate headaches.


Massage & Bodywork

Those people who use massage as an adjunct to other therapies often include Thai massage in their treatment. Thai yoga massage is a combination of massage, yoga and acupressure that helps to allow free-flow of energy throughout the body...


Editor's Note from David Burrows: I am quite the fan of Thai Massage, and recommend this article for general information about this type of bodywork.


Massage & Bodywork

Not everyone can afford or find the time to get a massage as often as they need to. I try to make suggestions to my clients on how they can help relieve their pain at home. Below are my favorite and easiest suggestions. I hope you can use them to help relieve your pain too...


Editor's Note from David Burrows: We often forget about simple things we can do at home for our muscle aches and pains.  For example, the use of alternating hot and cold therapies as suggested by this author.

Editor´s Note: One reason massage therapists incorporate Bamboo tools to administer massage is to prolong the life of their hands and thus their careers. Bamboo Massage is also an interesting alternative to regular massage.

Why CEOs Need Expanded Awareness

by JD Messinger

The greatest advantage that a chief executive can attain is a condition of Expanded Awareness (EA). A recent Fortune magazine cover bears the image of legacy leaders whose unique vantage point and prescient insights were not only demonstrated in stellar shareholder returns, but in altering human behavior as well. These great EA visionaries created a linear innovation—a combination of things that already existed but bundled in a manner that added new value in a new way—and in the process shifted industrial patterns and consumer behavior...
