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

Reiki is a Japanese term which translates as “Universal Life Force Healing.” Reiki was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui. Many versions of the origins of Reiki have been told. Historians are not definitive on Usui’s life or the origins of Reiki. What follows here is the version of the story of Reiki as it was told to me by one of my Reiki teachers...

 

 

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, CMP, CHTP, RMT

One way to look at massage and bodywork is as a form of Metta or lovingkindness. Tam Khye Chow, one of the foremost exponents of Thai Massage, has said that “Metta” or lovingkindness is the most essential component of giving massage to another human being. Massage without Metta is a lifeless art. Metta, a Pali word, is one of the “four immeasurables” in Buddhism–the other three being compassion, equanimity and sympathetic joy...

Chi Nei Tsang is based in the teachings of Mantak Chia as originally taught to him by Taoist monks. It is a practical useable system that combines massage, breath and Chi Kung in such a way that a practitioner can teach their client basic practice that can be incorporated into their everyday lives...

 

 

 

Massage & Bodywork

Three years ago I was sitting in a hostel in Singapore reading a fabulous article in Yoga Journal about the healing art of Thai Massage. I had just gotten my land legs back after eight months of cruising the South Pacific and Eastern Asia as an on-board Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher...

 

Editor’s Note: Thai Massage has been steadily gaining popularity in the West in recent years as a practice that lies somewhere between the worlds of massage and yoga. It seemingly combines the best of these two worlds...

Massage & Bodywork


by David Pratt, LMT, BA

It is easy to assume Breema is just bodywork when we see photo- graphs of practitioner and recipient moving in perfect ease and balance. If you’ve already received a treatment, you probably know what a transformational effect it can have. However, Breema is more succinctly a practical teaching including bodywork, self-bodywork and nine universal principles, supporting recipients and students to have the experience of bringing mind, body and feelings into harmony...


Author's Note: “There’s not an artificial way of doing Breema that has to be over-come,” said Jon Schreiber, Director of the Breema Center, when I talked to him for this article. This new way of using the mind and body provides us with profound support to experience that freedom really is in this moment. Breema helps us again and again to move from complication to simplicity. When we have a taste of that, it is clear that this is what we have been searching for.

 

Massage & Bodywork

For lower back pain, some of the most important structures we need to address are the ligaments. Of particular interest are those running “horizontally” – from the levels of S5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and L5 to the ilium at each vertebral level. The sacroiliac and iliolumbar ligaments are, in other words, running at 90° to the “vertically” organized fascia associated with the erector spinae...

 

Editor's Note: One of the best massage educators around shares one of the less known causes of back pain and how to treat it with massage.

 

Massage & Bodywork

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...

This is the fourth part of a series of columns about the muscles of the rotator cuff

Well, it’s been a while since I last wrote here about the old rotator cuff, and I’ve had a few requests for another installment...

 

Author's Note: "Unfreezing" a restricted shoulder can often be accomplished with the careful help of a skilled massage therapist. Do you know which of the four rotator cuff muscles is most often involved in this condition? Find out now...

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.
