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 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.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Sylvia Carlson

Human beings need touch - to grow, to develop, to mature, to survive, to thrive...The reality is that it can be very alienating not to be touched. Perhaps this is why we, particularly in the West, seek out what Diane Ackerman (1990) calls professional touchers such as hairdressers, cosmeticians, estheticians and massage therapists...

 

 

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...

Massage & Bodywork


by Lu MK

“Keep the overhead low” is the first business advice any owner gets to hear.

The little place with low rent where you do everything yourself is the romantic ideal. And it is what most good therapists do, whether they’re counselors, massage therapists, acupuncturists...

 

Editor's Note: The author has some business savvy for Healthcare Practitioners, cautioning us not to play it so safe that we sabotage ourselves. Is it really wise to keep our overhead so low that we don't expand our healing outreach? If you're a business owner, read this article for food for thought.

Editor's Note: Massage Master Kam Thye Chow shares his informative perspective of Chair Massage. In this video, he coins the phrase "exaggerate the back" to help the therapist to achieve optimal posture.  He also covers important fundamentals of massage technique, including the quality of touch and the use of tai chi stances. Kam Thye Chow believes "thai massage can save the world." He defines massage as being synonymous with loving-kindness! See Part 1.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Dale Favier

If I have a mission as a therapist, it's to encourage people to explore their own bodies. It's a variation on the theme that I keep returning to: to dwell in our lives, instead of camping in them. Applied to the body, it's live in this body, here, now, not the perfect body we ought to have or will have...

 

 

Massage & Bodywork

 


by Ion Doaga

Did you ever have a massage but didn’t get what you expected? It was too deep or it was too light for you?

Massages are not something you experience every day, and when you decide to try it you want it to be an  amazing experience. Especially when you make a spa gift certificate to someone who never had a massage.

So many types of massage and you have to choose only one...

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...
