Specifically targeted injury massage helps soft-tissue injuries (such as muscle pulls and strains, tendonitis, ligament sprains, and whiplash) heal faster. Massage reduces spasm, pain, swelling, and formation of excess scar tissue. Massage also breaks up excess scar tissue and adhesions (stuck together tissue) that weaken muscles and contribute to further injury...

 

Editor's Note: Former Washington state Massage Therapist, Carol Wiley, writes a very informative and clear article regarding massage when a person suffers an injury.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Sylvia Carlson

Human beings need touch - to grow, to develop, to mature, to survive, to thrive...The reality is that it can be very alienating not to be touched. Perhaps this is why we, particularly in the West, seek out what Diane Ackerman (1990) calls professional touchers such as hairdressers, cosmeticians, estheticians and massage therapists...

 

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Kathleen M. Murphy, LMT, NCTMB

There’s something irresistible in the artistry of a beautiful pair of pumps. (If not, why would generations of wearers voluntarily endure the pain?) There’s good reason, though, to limit high-heeled shoes to periods of short wear or special occasions...

Massage & Bodywork

Massage


by David Burrows, BA, CMP, CHTP, RMT

One way to look at massage and bodywork is as a form of Metta or lovingkindness. Tam Khye Chow, one of the foremost exponents of Thai Massage, has said that “Metta” or lovingkindness is the most essential component of giving massage to another human being. Massage without Metta is a lifeless art. Metta, a Pali word, is one of the “four immeasurables” in Buddhism–the other three being compassion, equanimity and sympathetic joy...

So, you’ve probably heard about carpal tunnel syndrome, but what about the thoracic outlet? Do you know where that is? Have you ever heard of thoracic outlet syndrome...

 

Author's Note: Do you have pain, tingling or numbness from your shoulder and down into your arm? It could be thoracic outlet syndrome. Massage therapy focused on releasing tension and lengthening specific muscles can reduce pressure on nerves and diminish symptoms. Clients can be taught self-care, which may include stretching or releases that rely on isometrics to return the body to balance.

“...It is very important to understand there is no disease process which cannot be made more likely - or more serious ...

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...
