Kriya Massage

Kriya™ massage facilitates seeing and feeling the energy patterns of movement. There is a magical feeling that goes along with it. People receiving a massage feel it, but are not consciously aware of the possible effect. Kriya™ stimulates change by disrupting old holding patterns of consciousness in preparation for realignment to a polarized state. The affect on the client is a progressive buildup of energy as the practitioner continues.The use of the Kriya™ dance creates a feeling of having received multiple massages. Kriya™ uses energy patterns that are spirals, figure eights and circles. The result is a continuous motion with no beginning and no end. When this type of massage is integrated with other styles, the affect is intensified and may continue for many days. Kriya™ can be a separate massage or an adjunct to any other style.


Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.


Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.

Why get a Deep Tissue Massage?
It feels good and it is beneficial to your health. When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep-tissue massage  releases toxins from muscles and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released, it's important to drink plenty of water after any massage to help eliminatetoxins from the body.

It's important to be realistic about what one massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour. This just won'thappen. In fact, undoing chronic knots and tension built up over a lifetime is best achieved with an integrated program that includes exercise, work on your posture and ways of moving, relaxation techniques and a regular program of massage.


Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics.  Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term.  Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates.  Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.

Knead for speed:
Study shows key role of massage — Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps got a massage twice a day in Beijing. His teammate, Dara Torres, had two massage therapists on stand-by.And a bunch of sedated rabbits in Ohio recently had massage performed on their legs after bouts of intense exercise.
Phelps, 23, made history by winning eight gold medals. Torres, 41, became the oldest swimmer to compete in an Olympic event and win a silver medal.
As for the rabbits? They might have proved scientifically what athletes and trainers have long believed: Massage really does help with muscle recovery.


Arvigo Abdominal Massage

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage TM are founded on the ancient Mayan technique of abdominal massage which is an external non invasive manipulation that releases myofascial adhesion and helps repositions internal organs  that have shifted. Adhesions and mispositioning restricts the flow of blood, lymph, nerve and chi. Based on over thirty years of training and experience in massage, naprapathy, herbology, and spiritual healing, Dr. Rosita Arvigo developed these techniques which now bear her name. This modality incorporates a holistic approach to wellness which includes massage, anatomy and physiology, herbology, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual healing. Dr. Arvigo believes that with any natural healing technique, these areas must be simultaneously addressed to promote optimal wellness. Dr. Arvigo learned these techniques from her mentor, Don Elijio Panti, the great Maya Shaman of Belize, Central America with whom she apprenticed for ten years. Don Elijio believed that a woman's center is her uterus. "If a woman's uterus is out of balance, so is she," he would say. Midwives and healers of Central America agree that most female troubles are caused by the wandering womb. Don Elijio passed away in 1996 at the age of 103. Rosita also studied with Hortence Robinson, a 73 year old herbal midwife of Belize who has been delivering babies since she was 13.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage TM address position and wellness of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common disorders.

How does it work for women?
This external massage gently lifts and guides the uterus into its optimal position in the lower pelvis. The uterus is held in position by over 10 ligaments. Ligaments, when stressed or strained cause the uterus to become mal-positioned. If the uterus is mal-positioned, women experience a multitude of ailments.

What could cause a displaced uterus?
- High Impact exercise, running on cement surfaces, high impact aerobics, etc
- Injury to the sacrum or tailbone from a fall, car accidents, etc.
- Pelvic ligaments that have weakened due to overstretching during pregnancy and birth
- Lifting & carrying heavy objects before or during menstruation and too soon after childbirth
- Time and gravity
- Past surgeries
- Weak pelvic floor muscles
- Chronic muscle spasm around the low back and sacrum
- Emotional armoring from abuse at anytime in life

What are the symptoms of a displaced uterus?
- Painful or irregular periods; painful or irregular ovulation
- Dark or brown blood at the onset and at the end of menstruation
- Headache or migraine with period
- Varicose veins of the legs and/or tired, weak or numb legs
- Low backache; back pain with period
- More serious imbalances including: Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids and Uterine Polyps
- PMS/ depression
- Frequent urination; bladder infections, incontinence
- Recurrent vaginal infections
- Chronic miscarriages
- Difficulty getting pregnant/Infertility
- Painful intercourse
- Chronic constipation
- Difficult menopause

How quickly should I expect a change?
Depending on the severity of the problem, it may take as little as one session and as long as many months for the uterine position to be corrected and for the ligaments to gain enough strength and elasticity for it to stay in place. 3 sessions are usually the minimum. Women often report a rapid improvement in symptoms and sense of well-being when self-care is performed regularly.

Is uterine massage recommended for all women?
Almost every woman, even those who have had hysterectomies can benefit greatly from uterine massage through improved circulation, lymphatic drainage, and a decrease in the formation of scar tissue.

Uterine massage is not performed: 1) during menstral bleeding; 2) within the first 6 weeks following a normal vaginal delivery or the first 3 months after a c-section; 3) for a woman using an IUD for birth control; 4) if cancer is present or suspected anywhere in the pelvis, or the client is undergoing chemotherapy for this condition; 5) during the first trimester of pregnancy; or 6) hiatal hernia - gentle touch only.

How is this massage helpful for men?
The massage is done the same way for men. The prostate is a glandular organ that rests behind the bladder it has no ligaments to speak of for support. The prostate gland can become congested resulting in early stages of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH), impotence (depending on the cause), decrease sperm count, etc. By applying the massage to the abdomen it supports healthy organ function and relieves congestion.

Does uterine massage support fertility?
It has been estimated that approx 30 % of woman who have been unsuccessful in conceiving eventually conceive after a succession of MAM treatments. Treatments generally consist of massage, diet and lifestyle modifications, herbal therapies to enhance fertility.

Once the uterus is in its optimal position, there is improved hemo dynamics and homeostasis to support and enhance fertility. When including the partner in the process, we find fertility is increased! After all, men need this work as much as women do.

I've had a hysterectomy - how does uterine massage help?
Women who have had hysterectomies benefit greatly as well. The technique improves circulation in and around the area of the scar and allows for proper flow of the lymph, which often becomes blocked after surgery, resulting in swelling, burning and deep aching pains in the pelvis. By using uterine massage techniques on a regular basis, scar tissue will be prevented from forming in the pelvis after surgery. Ligaments and other remaining organs are benefited from improving circulatory flow to the pelvis.

How does arvigo abdominal massage help with digestion?
Many anxieties and emotions through life are stored in our body's tissues and organs. A very common place is in the organs of the digestive system. Those so called "butterflies in your stomach" can lead to constipation, indigestion, heartburn, gastritis, and eventually to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Gasto Esophageal Reflux (GERD), Crohn's and more.

Stresses and emotions cause the small intestine and colon to be "twisted or kinked" leading the blockages in the flow of peristalsis. Surrounding fascia creates adhesions that mal-position organs and impede proper blood flow and enzyme secretions. Maya Abdominal Massage helps to break down facial adhesions, scar tissue and removes any "kinks" in the digestive tract. Often there is a dramatic improvement after just one session when combined with proper diet and self-care.

What is "self-care" and why does it help?
Each client is instructed in performing the abdominal massage for themselves. By doing self care massage daily for 2 - 3 minutes of daily massage, it provides the individual with the ability to improve their symptoms while working with their practitioner.

Breast Health

Self-breast massage is something that  women should do for themselves daily.   
Here are some links to video's on how to perform a simple version of self breast massage

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzu2nlS0Y3k 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq5ComJWr3Q                   

Massaging makes the breasts firmer, makes breasts healthier and aids in maintaining the balance of hormones in a woman’s body.  
The female breasts are made up of fatty tissue, milk producing glands and lymphatic ducts and nodes which benefit greatly from being massaged.
  The confinement of the breasts, for example,from tight clothing, causes a stagnation of fluids within the breasts which provides the opportunity for lumps, tumors, cysts and cancer to develop. 
New research suggest that regular breast massage helps to maintain health and prevent lumps, tumors, cysts and cancer.
Massage also assists in recovery from surgery.
Women who have undergone breast surgery oftenexperience pain, tightness, swelling, edema and, in the case of mastectomy, feelings of grief  and loss. The ways massage therapy aids breast-cancer patients are varied, and includes relaxation, pain relief, emotional support, reduction of both swelling and tightness,softening of scar tissue, and alleviation of edema. Massage can also help "reconnect" mastectomy patients to their own bodies.
  

Massage is a powerful tool assisting in a persons overall health, healing and recovery process. Breast massage as a normal part of any massage treament greatly enhances the overall benifits of the massage and ones health.

Massage Benefits Women with Breast Cancer
 
Research was conducted by the Touch Research Institutes, Department of  Pediatrics, Hematology/Oncology Clinics, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and Department of Medicine at the University of Miami School of Medicine."Breast cancer patients improved immune functions following massage therapy." Massage therapy reduced depression, anxiety and anger in women with breast cancer, and increased their levels of dopamine, serotonin, natural killer cells and lymphocytes, according to recent research.  Results of the urine tests showed that serotonin and dopamine levels for the massage group increased, and the blood tests showed that there was a significant increase   in their natural killer (NK) cell numbers and lymphocytes.Natural killer cells (also known  as NK cells, K cells, and killer cells) are a  type of lymphocyte (a white blood cell) and  a component of the immune system. "NK  cells spontaneously destroy a wide variety of cancer and virus-infected cells and are involved in eliminating metastases."  
Although rare, men are also subject to breast cancer.

WHAT TO EXPECT
  
 
 When you are considering breast massage make sure you have a clear understanding as to what is involved. As a client you need to give consent to any treatment you are receiving.                     
Ask questions!     
Your perception of the professionalism and integrity of the practitioner is very important. Massage therapist are trained to be flexible and versatile. Building trust is key to achieving the best treatment possible. 
Breast massage can be very sensitive issue for some women. Your comfort level is of the utmost importants. Draping will be utilized when receiving a treatment. Usually the most effective way to perform some of the work will be undraping the breast. Options are available to accommodate for your level of comfort if you feel uncomfortable about having your breast undraped.   Communication is vitally important in creating a safe and trusting environment. Speak to the therapist about any concerns you have. You can say yes or no to any part of the treatment and at any time make adjustments to feel more comfortable. The massage therapist is a skilled professional who can support the routines of healthy breasts and overall health monitoring.  

Massaging of the breasts is a practice that has been done for centuries in India, the Orient and other parts of the world. Such a practice is documented in Ayurvedic medicine, a medical system that originated in India and has been around for generations.

Shamanic Energy Healing

This healing modality is based on a holistic view of health and well being as practiced by shamanic healers around the globe. A person’s health is assessed through tracking the alignment of body, mind and spirit. This balance is essential for internal as well as external health.

Rather than focusing on a cure as in western medical traditions, shamans relate to the whole person and track the origins of the symptom to its source. Illness is believed to have an energetic origin based in a traumatic event that the person has experienced. This event can be recent or long ago and beyond immediate recall. The trauma leaves an energetic imprint that if left unattended and unhealed, can develop into a chronic emotional, mental or physical condition. Therefore the shaman tracks for and addresses the origins of this trauma at the energetic level, thereby removing the imprint and its influence on our health and well being.

Who Could Benefit from a Light Body Energy Session

Light Body energy sessions focus on the following aspects: Power loss, Soul loss, Intrusions, Spirit releasing, Ancestral work and Energetic imprints in the luminous energy field. People experiencing any of the following are candidates for Light Body energy work:
• Depression
• Repetitive negative behavior patterns
• Emotional or health issues related to your ancestry
• Past emotional traumas that continue to haunt you
• Apathy, numbness, lack of vitality or fatigue
• An unhealthy attachment to any individual
• Chronic illness or weak immune system
• A propensity toward addictions and destructive behaviors
• Feelings of emptiness
• Feelings of watching your life from the outside
• Inexplicable mood swings or personality shifts

  What to Expect in a Light Body Energy Session

THE ILLUMINATION PROCESS
The Illumination Process is an energy medicine healing procedure that deals with clearing heavy, dense energies within your Luminous Energy Field, or aura, allowing for healing to occur at a blueprint level. This approach is very useful for people who feel 'stuck' in their current life situation and can intellectually understand what they are doing is harming them but do not know how to stop it. It enables them to get 'unstuck' so that they can get on with their lives and actually enjoy it.  


Tong Ren

What is Tong Ren energy healing?
Tong Ren energy healing was developed by Tom Tam, Chinese acupuncturist, as a therapy for internally healing a patient’s energy system by using the collective unconscious, as defined by Dr. Carl Jung, for internally accessing that energy system.Tom Tam Tong Ren Therapy is an energy healing technique which has been used to treat many difficult conditions such as Cancer, MS and Parkinson's with great success. The technique comes from the larger Tam Healing System as developed by Tom Tam. The system is based on Tom Tam's years of clinical practice and research and utilizes both western and eastern medical thought. Tong Ren can be used by practitioners and lay people for self-help or to help heal others.

Tong Ren Healing Class
Classes are group-healing sessions using Tong Ren therapy. The classes utilize Tom Tam's Healing System. The basis of energy healing is that energy removes blockages in the body that cause illness. Removal of these blockages restores the natural flow of 'Chi' energy so that the body naturally corrects itself and therefore functions properly and heals.

The major benefits of Tong Ren Therapy as a method of promoting healing are:
Non invasive
Can be done in person or at a distance
Easy to learn - can't do anything wrong
Can be done by "professionals" or "anyone else"
Effective with many conditions.
Wonderful way to support the healing process of someone you care about.
Doesn't diagnose the illness - works on the symptoms and the source of imbalance.
No side effects.
Can be used with other "therapies" or medications at the same time

Persimmon Leaves

Persimmon (Diospyros kaki) originated in China and has been grown for over 1000 years in Japan, which is the leading producer today. A similar variety of the Persimmon fruit (Diospyros virginiana) grows in the Eastern USA and is called Pawdad. The tannins and flavonoids in Persimmon leaves have anti-hypertensive, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-mutagenic properties. The leaf also acts as a mild laxative, is antihemorrhagic (stops bleeding), is an effective remedy for hemorrhoids, and strengthens weak blood vessels such as spider veins or varicose veins. Persimmon leaf extract and its major flavonoid constituent, astragalin, when taken orally, acts as a natural antihistamine which inhibits the release of histamine and thus helps reduce allergic reactions. It relieves the symptoms of dermatitis, with less inflammation and thickening of the skin, and less water loss which can lead to dry skin. It may also act as a dermatitis preventive. An allergy preventive food or an itching preventive food which contains Persimmon leaves, or an extract of Persimmon leaf, or a cosmetic composition containing Persimmon leaf extract, has the action of improving rough skin conditions due to allergies, or alleviating itching. The astringent raw Persimmon fruit is used for constipation relief, gastro-intestinal irritation, dysentery, chronic diarrhea, ulceration of the bowel and stomach, catarrh of the rectum and colon, hemorrhoids, and to stop bleeding. Studies have shown that compounds in Persimmon leaves bind to excess fat and help remove fat from the body. Deal with Allergies and Hay Fever the natural way. No need for Antihistamines and their negative side-effects.

Holy Thistle

Holy Thistle (Silybum marianum) supports the liver in the release of toxins. Holy thistle has been used medicinally for over 2000 years, most commonly for the treatment of liver disorders such as jaundice, and gallbladder disorders; but also for lactation problems, disorders of the spleen, psoriasis, and mushroom poisoning. It has recently been used by HIV-positive patients to protect the liver from diseases such as hepatitis and damage from the drugs taken for HIV or AIDS. A flavanoid in the fruit called Silymarin (with its most active beneficial component called Silibinin or Silybin) is a powerful antioxidant, and may also protect the cells of the liver by blocking the entrance of harmful toxins and helping remove these toxins from the liver cells. Silymarin has also been shown to regenerate injured liver cells. It stimulates liver and gallbladder activity and may have a temporary mild laxative effect in some people. Holy Thistle products are popular in Europe and the United States for various types of liver disease, being able to counteract the harmful actions of alcohol on the liver (cirrhosis), and helping the liver return to a healthy state when an alcoholic stops drinking. Some clinical trials indicate that it may improve quality of life and even increase life expectancy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver. Holy Thistle is believed to have great power in the purification and circulation of the blood, and is such a good blood purifier that drinking a cup of Holy Thistle tea twice a day can cure chronic headaches. It is also used for stomach and digestive problems, gas in the intestines, and constipation relief. It is very effective for dropsy, strengthens the heart, and is good for the liver, lungs, and kidneys. It was claimed that warm Holy Thistle tea given to mothers will produce a good supply of milk, which led to this thistle being called by another name: Milk Thistle. Holy Thistle is also said to be good for girls entering womanhood, as a good tonic. The leaves and stems are eaten as a salad green in Europe.

Malva Leaves

The Malva or Chinese Mallow plant (Malva verticillata) is a member of the Malvaceae family which also includes the Marsh Mallow and the Hibiscus. The leaves have a mild and very pleasant flavor. Malva has been cultivated in China for over 2,500 years, and is now cultivated in some countries of Europe as a tasty salad green. Malva seed contains mucilage, polysaccharides and flavonoids. In traditional medicine, the Malva leaf was often made into a tea to sooth the membranes of the digestive system. It is demulcent (the mucilage soothes and softens irritated tissues, especially the mucus membranes), mild diuretic, emollient (softens the skin), galactogogue (increases milk flow in nursing mothers), and a mild laxative (a gentle stimulant of the bowels). Malva Leaf teas are used in the treatment of renal disorders, the retention of fluids, frequent thirst, and diarrhea. Malva Leaf has been used to treat stomach ache, gastroenteritis, irritable bowel, and conditions of the spleen. The Chinese use Malva Leaf as an expectorant and as a demulcent gargle to soothe a sore throat. It can also soothe a bronchial irritation in persons with bronchitis or emphysema. (Beware of Chinese Mallow teas which also contain Senna, also known as Cassia angustifolia or Cassia acutifolia or Cassia Senna or Indian Senna or Egyptian Senna. Cassia is a strong and harsh laxative that works by irritating the intestines. It should only be taken occasionally and for no longer than 7 days because it can create bowel dependency, stomach cramps and headaches. The safe Chinese Mallow leaf is added to soothe its irritating effects. Dr. Miller's Holy Tea does NOT contain Senna.)

Marsh Mallow

The Marsh Mallow or Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) was used by the ancient Greeks to remedy bruises and bleeding, and as a mild laxative. It was used in medieval Europe for indigestion and diarrhea. The Marsh Mallow root or leaf was traditionally used to soothe and support the intestines. It is rich in calcium, zinc, iron, sodium, iodine, vitamin B complex, and pantothenic acid. Herbs high in mucilage, such as Marsh Mallow and Malva Leaf (of the same family), are often helpful for symptomatic relief of coughs and irritated throats. Mallow has expectorant and demulcent properties, which accounts for this herb's historical use as a remedy for the respiratory tract, particularly in cases of irritating coughs with bronchial congestion. Marsh Mallow root and, to a lesser extent, Marsh Mallow leaf both contain significant percentages of mucilage, a natural gummy substance that does not dissolve in water. Like other mucilage-containing substances, Marsh Mallow swells up and becomes slick when it is exposed to fluids. The resulting slippery material coats the linings of the mouth, throat, and stomach to relieve irritation and control coughing associated with respiratory conditions such as smoker's cough. For example, Marsh Mallow has been used to treat sore throats and to alleviate heartburn, and was originally used to make a candy-like medicinal lozenge. Marsh Mallow may also have mild anti-infective, immune-boosting, and diuretic properties. In the British Herbal Compendium the use of Marsh Mallow is listed for gastroenteritis, peptic and duodenal ulcers, colitis, and enteritis. Topically, Marsh Mallow is used to soothe and soften irritated skin, and as a remedy for cuts, wounds, abscesses, boils, burns, and varicose veins. The edible leaves are used as salad greens in France.

Blessed Thistle

Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus or Carduus benedictus) has been used in traditional medicine as far back as the early sixteenth century as an appetite stimulant, astringent, blood purifier, choleretic (bile flow stimulant), diaphoretic (sweat stimulant), digestion enhancement, diuretic (increasing urine), expectorant, fever reducer, memory improver, menstrual flow stimulant, and salivation stimulant. It was cultivated in monastery gardens as a cure for smallpox and is named in honor of St. Benedict, the founder of a holy order of monks. It is still used as a flavoring in their Benedictine liqueur. Blessed Thistle has been used for smallpox, malaria, fever, anorexia, dyspepsia, indigestion, constipation, and flatulence. More recently it has shown to be useful for indigestion, heartburn, and poor appetite. Blessed Thistle helps increase appetite in people with digestion or eating disorders such as anorexia (but does not increase the appetite of normal people). In herbal medicine, Blessed Thistle is used for cancer, infections, inflammation, gallbladder disease, jaundice, liver disorders, cervical dysplasia, heart ailments, skin ulcers, yeast infections, and diarrhea.

Papaya

Papaya is recommended to be one such pick from the group of Yellow and orange fruits, which promises abundant health benefits. It is a melon like fruit with yellow- orange flesh with dozens of small black seeds enclosed in skin that ranges in color from green to orange. Papaya has high nutritional benefits. It is rich in Anti-oxidants, the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium and magnesium; and fiber. Together, "these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system and also provide protection against colon cancer." In addition, papaya contains the digestive enzyme, papain, which is used like bromelain, a similar enzyme found in pineapple, to treat sports injuries, other causes of trauma, and allergies. Vitamin C and vitamin A, which is made in the body from the beta-carotene in papaya, are both needed for the proper function of a healthy immune system. Papaya may therefore be a healthy fruit choice for preventing such illnesses as recurrent ear infections, colds and flu.

Ginger

For over two thousand years Chinese Medicine has recommended ginger to treat a number of health problems including abdominal bloating, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, and rheumatism. Ginger is also used in the Ayurvedic and Tibetan systems of medicine for the treatment of inflammatory joint diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism and a variety of other conditions.

Proposed Medical Benefits of Ginger

Although officially recognized as a remedy for appetite loss, indigestion and motion sickness, ginger root has a proven ability to combat all forms of nausea and vomiting. It has also been taken to loosen phlegm, relieve gas, and tighten the tissues, although its effectiveness for these purposes hasn't been proven. Comparisons between ginger and prescription or non-prescription drugs for motion sickness relief have been conducted, but results were inconclusive. However, in some of these studies, similar effectiveness was seen between ginger and drugs.

Ginger may also ease sore throats, headaches, ulcerative colitis, some types of menstrual and arthritis pain, and fevers and aches caused by colds and flu.

Chamomile

Chamomile has been used to treat a wide range of conditions and diseases when used internally or externally. This bittersweet herb acts medicinally as a tonic, anodyne, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic, and sedative. Chamomile tea can be used to treat digestive disturbances, gastrointestinal spasms, inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, and to treat coughs and colds, fevers and bronchitis. Chamomile contains bitter constituents that stimulate appetite and digestive secretions that help reduce flatulence. Chamomile's mildly sedating and muscle-relaxing effects can help those who suffer from insomnia to fall asleep more easily. Chamomile is best known as a muscle relaxant and antispasmodic. Chamomile helps to relieve nausea, heartburn, and stress-related flatulence. It may also be useful in the treatment of diverticular disorders and inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn's disease.

Myrrh

Myrrh is a hardy shrub that grows in desert regions, particularly in northeastern Africa and the Middle East and in regions around Arabia. The resin obtained from the stems is used in medicinal preparations. Today Myrrh is used in some mouth washes and sore throat medicines. Although it has had a number of reported medicinal uses throughout recorded history, myrrh is now found most often in mouthwashes to soothe mouth and throat irritations. In addition to relieving inflammation, using myrrh as a mouthwash also is thought to improve bad breath. As a mouth rinse, myrrh is approved for treating mouth inflammation by the German Commission E, the German governmental agency that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of herbal products. Undiluted myrrh tincture can also be applied directly to sores inside the mouth. Occasionally, diluted myrrh tincture is used as a wash for hemorrhoids or as a douche to relieve vaginal irritation.

Massage — The Timeless Miracle
The typical initiation to massage is motivated by a stressful or painful condition. But massage’s magical ministrations go deeper and offer you far more than you may have ever suspected. Regular massage can greatly benefit your overall health and well-being.
Read on to learn some of the wonderful health aspects available to you through massage.The more you learn about massage, the more you’ll benefit from each of our sessions.

This overview touches on some of the basic massage benefits available to you.

Massage:Alleviates stress.
Aids digestion
Improves circulation
Relieves tight or sore muscles
Aids detoxification
Improves range of motion And much more...

The most obvious benefit shared by virtually everyone is that a full body massage makes you feel great! The stress-relieving, soothing results are enough for many to include massage as a regular part of their lives.
But what of the less obvious benefits?
The first sense to develop is your sense of touch.
It’s not surprising when you consider that each square inch of your skin contains roughly 50 nerve endings. With as many as five million total touch receptors in your skin relaying messages on to your brain, your body’s initial response to massage is to relax and de-stimulate.
Even a simple touch has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce the heart rate.

Touch can also signal the brain to produce endorphins, your body’s natural pain suppressors.

Going deeper, massage can restore suppleness and strength to your muscles, improving their overall function. It’s the ideal treatment for releasing tension or muscles in spasm and helps to release toxins such as lactic acid (produced by muscle tissue during exercise), as well.
Proper circulation is vital to continued health. Your blood and lymph carry nourishment to the trillions of cells throughout your body and then carry away the waste to be eliminated from the cells. Massage encourages a better exchange of nutrients at the cellular level and more thorough detoxification.

Remember, the future "you" is determined by how well your army of cells regenerate themselves, so this is indeed a critical part of remaining healthy.

The nervous system is your communication network, sending messages constantly that determine proper functioning throughout your body. Stress can affect the ability of the nervous system to do its job. The many nerve endings found in the skin and muscles are soothed by massage, and this contributes to keeping your internal lines of communication open and operational.

Massage also aids in maintaining flexibility in your joints, such as the knee, hip, spine, shoulder, and neck. These joints are thoroughfares for nerves, veins and arteries, so their freedom of movement allow energy and blood to flow unimpeded.

So, you can see massage does quite a bit more than just relax you and work out the kinks in a sore back.
Since massage has been practiced for thousands of years and is one of the earliest known health treatments known to man, why don’t you hear more about it in today’s society?
In fact, massage today is rapidly growing in popularity and reputation. Besides being misunderstood, massage has had to overcome the reluctance many people have regarding physical contact. Of course, once they experience a therapeutic massage for themselves, most people are hooked.

A 1997 Life magazine article explored some of the research underway regarding the benefits of massage. Undertaken by the Touch Research Institute in Miami, ongoing studies are showing amazing results, as the following quotes indicate:"...
More than 50 TRI studies have shown massage to have positive effects on conditions from colic to hyperactivity to diabetes to migraines — in fact, on every malady TRI has studied thus far.
Massage, it seems, helps asthmatics breathe easier, boosts immune function in HIV-positive patients, improves autistic children’s ability to concentrate, lowers anxiety in depressed adolescents..."

...Massage can increase the lymph flow rate.
It enhances immune function and lowers levels of (two) stress hormones...".

..Field (the director of TRI) worries that Americans aren’t getting enough touch...At the TRI preschool, teachers encourage ‘positive touch.’ They dole out unlimited hugs, backrubs and shoulder pats...Most of the 40 children, from six months to five years in age, get a daily 15-minute rubdown, which leaves them according to TRI research, more alert, more responsive, able to sleep more deeply...
"Again, As you can see, massage offers more benefits than you may have imagined. Isn’t it good to know that something that feels so great can contribute to your long-term health as well?
Let’s work together to help you get the most from your massages — see you at your next appointment!

Make the Most from Every Massage!
Massage can be a powerful tool to help your body best perform its countless functions in its goal to maintain a healthy balance. Why not do everything you can to get the best possible results from every massage session? This article is devoted to providing you with some hints to make the most from your bodywork sessions.
Before your session...
The mood of your session can be affected by the things currently influencing your life. You can improve your results by preparing yourself before your massage time. If you can put the events of your life on pause for a little while and truly devote your session time to taking care of you, the benefits you experience can be greatly enhanced.
Life really will wait a couple of hours for you — and you’ll be in much better shape to deal with your responsibilities when you are feeling your best!
Other things you can do, as time allows:
Take a relaxing bath or shower before your appointment time.
Limit consumption of caffeine and sugar, as well as other stimulants.
Avoid eating immediately before your appointment.
Allow extra time in your schedule so you don’t have to rush to be ready for your session. Otherwise, it may take longer to reach a relaxed state.
Be aware of your current condition so you can report anything that needs attention. It’s important to explain what’s going on healthwise, because changing health conditions can affect your massage needs.

During your session...Share what’s going on. If you have a tender spot or an injured area, bring it up so it can be addressed. If you feel you need more pressure or a lighter touch during the session, please say so. If everything is great, you can lie back and relax. If you find your attention is on something, bring it up so you will be able to lie back and relax! Specify your preferences. Everyone has different needs and wants, so share yours! Is everything in the massage environment okay? The temperature? The lighting? Any other distractions? Are you completely at ease? Do you like certain music? Is the volume okay? Do you like specific techniques? More time spent on a certain area?

Each session is especially for you, so please communicate about what you want! If there is anything you don’t understand, please ask so we can discuss it. Let it all go and relax! One of the major massage goals for many people is to lessen tension and stress. Many of those aches and pains that demand our attention are linked to stress.
In fact — according to Dr. Sandra McLanahan — eighty percent of disease is stress-related, so maximizing the relaxation in each session should help you to maintain a much higher level of well-being!
One way to quiet your mind is to focus your attention on the session — really get in tune with your sense of touch.
Proper breathing helps you to relax and to reach your session goals. Slow, deep breathing (from the gut) will provide your body with much-needed oxygen, while signaling your body to let go of its tensions.

After your session...If at all possible, allow for some quiet time before you continue your busy life. Drink extra water!! Massage releases waste products and toxins from your muscles. Increasing your fluid intake lowers this toxicity and lessens the strain on filtering organs.
Before your next session...Make your massage results last by avoiding as many stressful elements as possible.

Schedule your next appointment!
When you make bodywork a regular part of your life, you are helping your body to maintain a better state of balance. In the long run, you stand to enjoy much better health gains through consistent sessions. Make note of anything that occurs between sessions to bring up next time. Enjoy your life!

Nothing is more important than your well-being, so make taking care of yourself a high priority.
When you feel your best, you are in a much better condition to deal with all of life’s challenges and demands.
Hopefully, this list has given you at least a couple of helpful hints. If there are any other points you’d like to bring up, please do so. And if you have any questions regarding your massage and bodywork sessions or your health, feel free to ask.

The Benefits of Regular Massage

Once people discover the many joys and benefits of massage, a common question arises —
"How often should I schedule my massage sessions?"
Of course, there is no set answer, but studies indicate that massage at regular intervals is most beneficial to your overall health.
In a Newsweek article entitled "The Magic of Touch," the advantages of frequent massage are considered. The following excerpts help to answer the question, "How often?"
"A weekly massage may seem an indulgence, but new research suggests it can have major health benefits....
"Since instituting a program of massage, job-specific exercises and ergonomics in 1990, the Virginia-based company [Wampler Foods] has cut repetitive-stress injuries by 75 percent
From assembly lines to corporate headquarters, Americans are discovering the magic of massage.

At Boeing and Reebok, headaches, back strain and fatigue have all fallen since the companies started bringing in massage therapists . . .

Doctors have started prescribing massage to help patients manage stress and pain. And a few HMOs have begun sharing in the cost.

‘Massage is medicine, not merely an indulgence,’ says Laura Favin of Not Just a Luxury Onsite Massage in New York....

"Scientists are now finding that massage can reduce blood pressure, boost the immune system, dampen harmful stress hormones and raise mood-elevating brain chemicals such as serotonin.
 
And you can’t beat massage for relaxation.

Babies fall asleep faster when massaged than when rocked — and they stay asleep, rather than waking the moment Mom tiptoes away.

All these factors, says Tiffany Field, founder of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami’s School of Medicine, ‘put massage in the same category with proper diet and exercise as something that helps maintain overall health.’ ...

"The effects aren’t always so straightforward.
Massage can also stimulate nerves that carry signals from the skin to the brain, triggering changes throughout the body.... Field showed that massage (as opposed to light touch) stimulates the brain’s vagus nerve, causing the secretion of food-absorption hormones, including insulin. Nerve stimulation probably explains other benefits as well.... Dr. James Dillard of Columbia University [says], ‘Every nerve cell in the body has some connection to every other nerve cell.’ ..."Like exercise, massage does more for you if you engage in it regularly... even a monthly treatment can help maintain general health. ‘Touch is basic to survival,’ says Elliot Greene, past president of AMTA [American Massage Therapy Assn.]. That’s all the excuse anyone should need to indulge."Remember, your body strives to maintain optimum health by keeping all of its systems in balance. Along with proper nutrition, exercise and rest, massage relaxes tense muscles and stimulates the body’s communication lines to help it do its job — and to keep you feeling your best. So, make regular massage a priority in your life for a healthier tomorrow!

Enjoy Your Holiday! You probably have plenty to do in the coming weeks. The end-of-year holiday season can be one of the busiest times of the year. Hopefully, much of what you have to do involves sharing time with all the special people in your life, and as the year winds down, you’ll have time to relax and reflect on the truly important things in your life.

When you do find time to catch your breath, be sure to take a moment to consider what improvements you can make in your day-to-day life that add to your health and happiness. It’s funny how easy it is to take for granted the truly important things like your health until you wear yourself out or push yourself to the point of illness. Whenever you need to recharge, give your health a boost, get away from it all for an hour, or unburden yourself from accumulated stress, remember that your next massage awaits!Enjoy the rest of this issue; see you soon!
 
What Could Be Better Than a Massage?

Can you think of anything that can match massage for making you feel your best while giving you overall health support? Of course, all your lifestyle choices can make a difference in your health and how you feel, but massage is in a class by itself in helping you maintain your health.If you do a little research, you’ll find many studies that verify massage can help you in so many ways. From anxiety and arthritis to sports injuries and stress, massage helps your body’s many complex systems to work more efficiently together. Many health problems can develop from having your body get out of balance. One reason massage is so effective at helping you stay healthier is that it contributes to homeostasis—your body’s efforts to keep all its systems operating in harmony at the optimum levels.So, keep in mind one reason getting regular massage makes you feel so good is that it’s helping your body to stay in a healthier balance. And when your body is doing better, it follows that your mental outlook is likely to improve. Remember that regular massage is one of the best ways you can help yourself stay on the road to a healthier and happier life!

Now, Some Good Health News . . .
Massage therapy has health benefits — In the past, relaxation was cited as the leading motivator for getting a massage, but increasingly Americans are looking to massage therapy for medical reasons and pain relief.
Statistics from a 2006 report ... showed that 1 in 4 adults in this country say they have experienced a daylong bout of pain in the past month, and one in 10 say the pain lasted a full year or more ... Luckily, massage therapy has been shown to give considerable relief from many types of pain, and is well known for relieving stress and promoting relaxation.
The Olympian, Olympia, Washington, Sept. 2008

Knead for speed: Study shows key role of massage — Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps got a massage twice a day in Beijing. His teammate, Dara Torres, had two massage therapists on stand-by.

And a bunch of sedated rabbits in Ohio recently had massage performed on their legs after bouts of intense exercise.Phelps, 23, made history by winning eight gold medals. Torres, 41, became the oldest swimmer to compete in an Olympic event and win a silver medal.As for the rabbits? They might have proved scientifically what athletes and trainers have long believed: Massage really does help with muscle recovery.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, Missouri, Sept. 2008

Short-Term Stress Affects Memory

Employers thinking of bringing massage therapy into the workplace should consider this: New research shows that short-term stress can affect learning and memory—and the beneficial effects of massage on stress are already well documented.Short-term stress lasting as little as a few hours can impair brain-cell communication in areas associated with learning and memory, University of California, Irvine researchers have found. Severe stress lasting weeks or months has already been shown to impair cell communication in the brain’s learning and memory region, but this new study provides the first evidence that short-term stress has the same effect. The study appears in a spring edition of the Journal of Neuroscience.The researchers identified a novel process by which stress caused these effects. They found that rather than involving the widely known stress hormone cortisol, which circulates throughout the body, acute stress activated selective molecules called corticotropin releasing hormones, which disrupted the process by which the brain collects and stores memories.

Multitasking Backlash
You may pride yourself on the ability to juggle multiple tasks, said Jon Hamilton in NPR.com. But MIT researchers say your multitasking is a myth. You might think you’re doing two things at once, but in fact you’re just switching attention from one thing to the next very quickly, says Earl Miller, a professor of neuroscience at MIT. Because similar tasks compete for resources from the same part of the brain, one task always wins. “Think about writing an e-mail and talking on the phone at the same time,” says Miller. It’s nearly impossible.We’ve all been on the phone with someone who suddenly seems disengaged, said Alina Tugend in The New York Times. That’s the “e-mail voice,” says Edward M. Hallowell, author of CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and About to Snap! But the real problem with multitasking isn’t its rudeness. Multitasking just isn’t very efficient. In fact, researchers say that we’ve grown so accustomed to multitasking that we can lose our ability to concentrate even on a single task. “We need to re-create boundaries,” says Hallowell. Stop typing and try listening. You’ll be surprised by how much you accomplish when you “single-task.” —The Week Vol. 8 Iss. 387

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
