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.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, CMP, CHTP, RMT

While the Menu of Services that you look at in Massage Spas can be tidy and seem to offer meaningful choices, sometimes they can be misleading.  Once I paid for a “Deep Tissue” Massage that was really a hot stone massage and a lot of Swedish effleurage strokes.  I didn’t receive deep tissue except on one area of my body where I had indicated a previous injury...

 

Editor´s Note: Why do I pay more for deep tissue? Check out my reflections on this topic.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows, BA, RMT, FSMTB, CHTP

Just attended a facinating course in Deep Tissue Massage, taught by Art Riggs, in San Francisco. It was five days of immersion into complex anatomy and kinesthetic sensitivity to body tissues and it featured two very different teachers...

 

Editor's Note: In the course of my massage studies, I was charmed and suprised to find out that Deep Tissue Massage can be a painless zen-like art as well as a science!

 

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


by David Feldman

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 Chandra Moira Beal

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...

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 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.

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...
