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...

Editor's Note: Craniosacral Therapy is a form of bodywork that balances the central nervous system. Craniosacral bodywork helps a client access very deep levels of relaxation. This is the perfect massage technique to receive when we're having a hard time relaxing and quieting our minds. It's amazing how much more focused and clear one can feel after receiving this work. PS - this video is over an hour and is a comprehensive introduction.

Editor's Note: Self care is such an important lesson parents can began teaching their infants soon after birth. Massage is a great technique to start with. Infant massage helps relieve colic, constipation, digestive problems, and insomnia. These massage techniques are gentle and easy to learn.

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


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.

Massage & Bodywork

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.
