Perhaps the biggest health secret humankind needs to hear is being carried by the bodywork profession! What do you think it is?

Ever since Ida Rolf stressed the important of verticality and the role that fascia plays in that – we have seen, in essence, the final step in human evolution...


Editor's Note: Many of us, including me, have heard of Mayan Abdominal Massage and wondered about it. What is it?  Is it exotic? This article by leading massage educator David Lauterstein presents his down-to-earth view of abdominal massage. The article originally appeared prior to a workshop on Mayan Abdominal Massage in order to educate people about the benefits of this type of bodywork.


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...

Massage & Bodywork

by Ion Doaga

When I go for a massage I have two main goals. First is to get out of knots or alleviate pain in particular areas of my body and second is to enjoy a pleasant and relaxing treatment.

Deep tissue massage offers both of these benefits, though it’s not always the case...



Massage & Bodywork

What is a trigger point? Well, it is a painful point in a muscle. It often feels like a small sausage or poorly cooked spaghetti surrounded by softer muscle tissue.

If it is really irritated, you can often feel pain radiating over a larger area when you press the point...



Massage & Bodywork

by Riva Naimark, LMT, NCTMB

Awareness of complementary therapies such as massage and/or energy based modalities has been growing among people diagnosed with chronic diseases. However, some don’t know quite enough about it; and often wonder if it could possibly address their particular symptoms of not. As with all such techniques, they do not replace regular visits to the person’s health care practitioner...


Editor's Note: In my own massage practice, I often see clients with chronic conditions that allopathic medicine is unable to cure. The author explains how and why Shiatsu might help in cases of chronic disease!


Massage & Bodywork

by Susan G. Salvo

There aren't very many people who, at first glance, would think of the lungs and respiratory system as gaining any great benefit from massage therapy, but those people are far from accurate. Massage therapy, when conducted by a skilled practitioner, can create some wonderful and helpful results when it comes to your lungs and ability to breathe more efficiently...



Massage & Bodywork

by David Pratt, LMT, BA

I was in a friend’s garden and had just picked two white turnips. As I stood up, I noticed how much force there was in this action, how roughly I had grabbed and snapped the second turnip, and how my mind was not with the activity of my body at all...


Author's Note: Breema is an art that is dear to my heart because it helps bring harmony into every area of my life. When I work with this art's principles, even something as simple as picking a turnip can be a source of nourishment and balance and reminds me that I am not separate from all of Existence. The amazing thing is, Breema is also a beautiful, flowing bodywork treatment that's received fully-clothed on a comfortably padded surface.

Massage & Bodywork

by David Burrows

In 2011 I returned home from a two month trip to India and Thailand to a cat named Chloe who was distraught, skinny, and had both developed and passed kidney stones during my absence. A few months passed with her continuing to look distraught and unhealthy and then I decided, after multiple visits to the Veterinarians, to try massage to help her...


Editor´s Note: How I healed my cat through Massage and Homeopathy. Look for a companion video soon showing the massage method I used for Chloe the cat.


Massage & Bodywork

by Ion Doaga

You already know about how useful massage is, but how to choose one that fits your needs? There are many types of treatments and massages, but no one breaks them down from A to Z.

Due to this, I decided to write a short guide about shiatsu massage. That might help you answer why you would want to choose shiatsu instead of another therapy...


Massage & Bodywork

by Lu Mueller-Kaul

Other therapists often say: “In my area people don’t know much about my modality, so it’s been slow to build a business.”

Their ads talk about that modality. So do their websites. And their profiles on Social Media. And yes, they do their best to educate people--about that specific system of bodywork they are certified in. By giving talks at libraries, community centers, maybe even networking groups...

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...
