Chronic Pain? Manage It With Therapeutic Massage

Over the past 23 years clients have told me how they manage their chronic aches and pains, especially in their back, neck, and shoulders. Those areas of the body are where I am most commonly asked to spend the bulk of my time during a massage session. Given the stereotypical American lifestyle, it’s no wonder these areas are tense since people tend to sit more and move less. The cause of upper body tension is generally related to things like excess stress, poor posture, computer work, lack of sleep, being overweight, and a sedentary lifestyle in general. Sadly, many of my clients are rarely consistent in their efforts to better manage pain and often rely on medication while neglecting the root cause of the problem.

Therapeutic bodywork is an ideal way to treat muscle tension since massage therapy is a specific form of passive stretching. During a massage the circulation of blood and lymph increases, muscles relax, tension around the joints are minimized, and those ‘feel good’ endorphins are released. This is how a massage therapist can relieve ‘knots’ often felt between shoulder blades and above the collar bone. As blood flow increases during a massage, nutrients delivered to the cells is enhanced, swelling is reduced, and blood pressure is lowered. Research suggests that receiving a therapeutic massage at least once every 4-6 weeks can provide long term health benefits. I find that receiving a massage once a month manages my joint and arthritis pain, helps me to relax and feel nurtured, and my skin has a healthy glow. Experience the results for yourself!

Where Vegans Get Their Protein...

Rich Roll is an ultra-endurance athlete, and like me, follows a plant-based diet. Vegans are often asked about their protein sources. Rich answers this question perfectly:

“Proteins consist of twenty different amino acids, eleven of which can be synthesized naturally by our bodies. The remaining nine — what we call essential amino acids  —  must be ingested from the foods we eat. So technically, our bodies require certain amino acids, not protein per se. But these nine essential amino acids are hardly the exclusive domain of the animal kingdom. In fact, they’re originally synthesized by plants and are found in meat and dairy products only because these animals have eaten plants.”

Resoution Motivator - Success Stories...

Reading about the trials and triumphs of others is inspirational. When I see and hear how others have overcome struggles and achieved like-minded goals I am encouraged and feel even more driven to move forward, let go of past transgressions, and succeed. As Jackie Joyner-Kersee said, “It’s better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.”

Check out this amazing story. Like my own success healing my heart problems, James Brown cured high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and AVOIDED heart bypass surgery…simply by changing his diet.

Post Holiday Stress? Relax by 'Tapping'...

Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a unique method of healing that I was first introduced to during college. My Mind/Body Health course professor introduced both EFT and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) as ways to better manage stress and emotional health. I practice and experience great results from both of these modalities. Watch the brief video below and follow along with Brad Yates, the guru of EFT, and check it out for yourself.

Share your results with me, I’d like to hear about your experience!:
