The infraspinatus has a funny name, and maybe you haven’t heard of it, but odds are good that you used yours today. Sure, you’ve got an infraspinatus...

 

Author's Note: One way that the infraspinatus can be injured is in the slowing down movement just following a throwing action. However, you don’t have to repeatedly throw a 90 mile per hour fast ball to develop problems in this area. Find out how difficulties can occur with this rotator cuff muscle and how massage therapy can help.

 

Massage & Bodywork

You may be a fan of Swedish massage which is always relaxing, but what if you want something a little deeper to really get to the root of your pain.

You can’t really decide which treatment to go with deep tissue massage, shiatsu or thai massage.

Massage & Bodywork

Here is a way you can do some cross fiber massage on yourself, on your back muscles with little effort and practically for free.  First find 2 tennis balls and used ones are acceptable; second, find a sock that has a sturdy cuff at least 3 inches long.  Put both tennis balls in the sock and tie it off as close to the tennis balls as you can...


Editor´s Note
:
Looking for a way to massage your back muscles at home?  Let this author tell you how to do that with one sock and two tennis balls!

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Carol Wiley

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.

Editor's Note: This is a professionally done video with great color and variation. The therapist's voice is clear and she has good hands for massage and always has contact with the client's body.

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.

Massage & Bodywork


by Celeste Yamall
Cross-posted from www.Care2.com

Therapeutic touch (TTouch) therapy, a method devised by Linda Tellington-Jones, is a type of nonverbal communication through cellular memory. The practitioner speaks to the cellular intelligence in her hands, which in turn speaks to the cells in the body. When working on animals, simply by placing your hands on the body and moving them in a circular manner, you create a kind of kinesthetic (sensory) interspecies communication...

 

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Stacy Lazar

Most of us could go through an entire day – weeks even – slouching in our desk chairs without realizing for a single moment that we’ve done our bodies not-so-good. By the time we’ve determine that our backs, necks and shoulders are aching, and that it might be time to book a massage, we can hardly recall where the pain came from in the first place...

 

 

 

Massage & Bodywork

If we look at medicine honestly, we see it’s based on trial and error. Even when the board-certified specialist prescribes a drug that’s been studied for decades, she won’t know how it effects one particular patient...

 

Editor´s Note: When you're a Trigger point therapist everything looks like a trigger point, but that's not always the case.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows

Releasing muscles, pain, and tension isn't always about massaging them or releasing trigger points or using heavy deep tissue techniques.  Massage therapists also use something called Muscle Energy Techniques. I believe that most orthopedic massage therapists or medical massage therapists use "muscle energy techniques" these days. ..

 

Editor´s Note: Massage therapy is not all about rubbing muscles these days. Most of us are trained in Muscle Energy Techniques. These techniques relax muscles, release pain, resolve trigger points, and increase range of motion through therapeutic stretching.

The Need for Compassionate Touch

by Ann Catlin

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.
