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 David Pratt, LMT, BA

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

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

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.

Editor's Note from Kyana Miner: Studies suggest an estimated 10 million people suffer from TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders. Tightness in the jaw can lead to sinus trouble, headaches, hearing problems, and more. However, many massage therapist don't incorporate TMJ massage and muscular release techniques into their sessions. In this video, Stew Wild walks us through some simple and easy to follow neuromuscular techniques for releasing tension in the TMJ.

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.

 

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

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!

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Gloria Coppola-Gaber

I have been a massage therapist for more than 20 years. During this time, I have studied many modalities that have inspired me in my practice. Ten years ago, I found myself moving to Hawaii—specifically the island of Kauai. I was there to study the ancient art of Hawaiian massage, known as lomilomi...


Editor's Note: There are many modalities in the massage profession. Gloria talks about the art of Lomi Lomi massage, a Hawaiian spiritual tradition based massage. In this article, Gloria explains it's background and how it is applied...

The Esalen style of integrated bodywork has roots in sensory awareness, Swedish massage, oriental medicine, meditation, and gestalt practice. At the core are long, lengthening strokes combined with gentle rocking and stretching...

 

Editor's Note: Esalen massage is a combination of massage techniques and variations of massage techniques based on multiple schools of bodywork. It has root in ancient Oriental massage, Swedish massage and others...

 

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...

Editor's Note from Suzanne Getz: Multifidy is an often overlooked muscle group that travels the length of the spine. Great to see a tip on how to work with that muscle.

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...
