February is ‘Heart Month’ and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Heart & Stroke foundation and all those who have donated toward the research that may have given me one more day, one more milestone to celebrate with my niece, Rachel. My 5 year old niece Rachel has Tricuspid Atresia which basically means she is missing the Tricuspid Valve in her heart that helps blood from the heart get to the lungs. Her condition is very severe, and causes her to turn blue, lose her breath, and get very tired with the smallest amount of exertion. Watch Rachel in action and see for yourself how she pushes.
Ever wonder what your massage therapist is really thinking about while you are thinking “Did I shave my legs?” This pretty much is exactly what I am thinking about while treating my clients. I came across these photos on Facebook. For more pictures like these, search “Back in Motion Therapeutic Massage” in Facebook.
If you love massage, we can make it work for you in any condition you are in. I came across this video about Oncology Massage and this therapist did a great job articulating how I feel about every massage therapy treatment I provide. It doesn’t matter who are, what condition(s) you have, or how much pain you are in. A good Massage Therapist will know how to modify techniques to make them work for you. I try to listen to your body with your input and provide the best possible treatment that is relevant to what your body needs in that moment. Sure, when indicated, I might suggest a treatment.
Massage Therapy is not the only way to touch someone who is experiencing pain. Pain comes in all forms. I touch people with my hands in an effort to ease their pain. This guy touches people with his voice. Bottom line is…people need to be touched. Who touched you the last time you were in pain?
