This Week's Massage News

Throughout the week I am always coming across interesting articles about massage therapy. I plan to gather these links into a weekly post and share massage therapy news.

Here are this week's interesting links:

Osteopathy a Growing Trend in Treatment of Children

"Oestopathy is intended to work preventatively and early in life, making it especially suitable for children," said Prediger. It can be used to detect and treat something like a displaced vertebrae very early. Also among children who have conspicuous behavioural issues, Prediger has achieved noticeable success.

Students Benefit From Pre-Exam Massages
"Everyone has described it as a positive experience and I think innovation is vital. We believe in doing things in a different way and our results are improving year on year. The school spent £150 subsidising the first massages, but now the 10 pupils who regularly have appointments are paying £5 for the half-hour slots.

Staying Active Can Help Keep You Pain-Free
Most adults know being active is important to being healthy but many admit they don't do what they know they should. Those who suffer from [pain] are even less likely to be active. Medical experts confirm that one of the ways to avoid pain, or to manage it, is through regular exercise.

The best way to treat pain, says Dr. Jamie Henderson, a Fredericton rheumatologist, is holistically. "It's not just the physician. I rely heavily on physiotherapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists and psychologists.

Cure For Hot Spots
The solution of equal parts Listerine, baby oil and water for dogs' hot spots is the most fantastic remedy I've read about in a long time! The minute my dogs start "worrying" a spot, I get out my spray bottle, spray the area thoroughly, massage the solution into their skin, and the problem stops immediately. No more hot spots that involve trips to the vet.

The Demartini Method
“The Demartini Method is a logical, learnable process that leads one through a series of high quality questions that equilibrate the mind and open the heart,” she wrote to describe it. “The experience that follows radically shifts one’s world view, collapses useless baggage, alters physiology and transforms relationships. It is, in my opinion, the most powerful healing tool on the planet.”
