A lot of my clients with low back problems have some form of hyperlordosis. Lordosis is the normal, slight curve in the low back, so hyper-lordosis means there is too much curvature...

 

Editor's Note: Author shares her insights into the mysteries of Low Back Pain and its association with curvature of the spine.

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, CMP, RMT, CHTP

When I think of Bangkok Thailand, where I was about this time last year, I remember beautiful Buddhist temples with ancient statues, like the immense gold-leafed image of the reclining Buddha, or the statues of sages doing yoga postures. I recall monks in light orange robes buying coffee and taking boat rides on the Chao Phraya River that runs through the city...

 

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Coach Cary Bayer

People want to work with you because of the work that you do with your hands.  That much is obvious. What's less obvious, however, is that they also want to work with you because of the work that you've done on yourself emotionally and spiritually. That's because many clients tend to see their massage therapist as a healer who helps them relieve their own stress...

 

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Silvia Casabianca

A few years ago, I woke up with an excruciating pain in my lower back. Although it was a very limiting pain, I was sure that as soon as I started moving around it would disappear. My denial was based on the scientific fact that movement dissipates tension, although why would I have tension after several hours of deep sleep? I told myself that I had probably slept in a forced posture. However, the day turned into night with no relief...

 

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


by Alana Eve Burman

We've written about how sports massage therapy can help football players, stating that regular massage can help keep players refresh during long periods of training, as well as help players avoid or manage their injuries. Yet another way massage therapy can help all athletes – and especially football players – is in its ability to treat pain associated with scars...


Editor's Note: Massage is not just for relaxation. It is gradually getting more attention for being a pain relief therapy. Scar tissue can form from any injury and traumatic bodily experience. This can cause serious pain. Read this article to find out how massage can help permanently relieve this pain.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, CMP, CHTP, RMT

While the Menu of Services that you look at in Massage Spas can be tidy and seem to offer meaningful choices, sometimes they can be misleading.  Once I paid for a “Deep Tissue” Massage that was really a hot stone massage and a lot of Swedish effleurage strokes.  I didn’t receive deep tissue except on one area of my body where I had indicated a previous injury...

 

Editor´s Note: Why do I pay more for deep tissue? Check out my reflections on this topic.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, RMT, FSMTB, CHTP

Just attended a facinating course in Deep Tissue Massage, taught by Art Riggs, in San Francisco. It was five days of immersion into complex anatomy and kinesthetic sensitivity to body tissues and it featured two very different teachers...

 

Editor's Note: In the course of my massage studies, I was charmed and suprised to find out that Deep Tissue Massage can be a painless zen-like art as well as a science!

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Norah Coyne

Abdominal-Sacral Massage is a powerful blend of many bodywork techniques that address common complaints of the Reproductive & Digestive systems, and Lower Back Problems.

Abdominal Sacral Massage is a deep; yet gentle non invasive therapy that works by bringing the organs within the abdominal area back into alignment, releasing pressure and strengthening the surrounding muscles and ligaments. This in turn will improve blood, nerve and lymph flow. Toxins are flushed and nutrients that help to tone tissue and balance hormones are restored to normal order...

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Feldman

Most dog owners know that the ears are a “happy place” for their dogs but what they really appreciate are the specific techniques they can use. Although many approaches are viable, I like to start from the part of the ear closest to the body...

 

Editor´s Note: I hope this author makes a video soon of this technique for ear massage for dogs!

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...
