Sports Massage a Must for Athletic Performance

"It was my first marathon and I'd been fighting a 20 mile-an-hour headwind for most of the race. When I finished, my upper back and hamstrings were so tight I couldn't stretch them myself," says Colorado athlete Camie Larson. "My husband, Jamie, found me and led me to the massage line. When I got to the massage therapist, she quickly assessed my condition. She...

Body Image: The statistics are alarming. The majority of U.S. women--some estimate more than 80 percent--are unhappy with their appearance. At least 10 million young women, and 1 million young men have an eating disorder. Girls as young as 6 and 7 are expressing disapproval of their looks, and most fourth-grade girls are already diet veterans. Most unsettling is the fact that more women, and girls, fear becoming fat than they...

Benefits of massage therapy

What kind of massage client are you? Do you make an appointment after someone has given you a massage gift certificate? Do you try to get in every now and then for a stress-relieving tune-up? Or do you see your therapist religiously--once a week, every three weeks, once a month?

While getting a massage--regardless of how often--is incredibly beneficial to your body and mind, getting frequent massage treatments is even more powerful as a...

I used to sit at the edge of the ocean to find my rhythm. When planning my annual vacations, it was the water that called me--not so much to be in it, but to be by it. Maternal and soothing, the comings and goings of the tide was my "reset" button--you know, the one that allows you to deal calmly again with the world. Along came twins, and my exotic vacations were replaced with ventures closer to home. Being in a land-locked state, sitting by...

Physician and holistic health pioneer Rachel Naomi Remen once confessed that as a pediatric intern she was an unrepentant baby kisser, often smooching her little patients as she made her rounds at the hospital. She did this when no one was looking because she sensed her colleagues would frown on her behavior, even though she couldn't think of a single reason not to do it.

The lack of basic human contact in our high-tech medical system...

I look at my 3-year-old daughter and worry, have I unknowingly skewed her view of the world and her place in it? Despite my best efforts, have I already "tainted" her with my own lapses in self-esteem?

Maybe she hasn't seen me throw a disapproving, albeit silent, look at my own backside in the mirror or overheard me talking about the post-baby (also known as the fell-in-love-with-Oreos-while-nursing) fat that still clings to me like a...

Friends! What better way to feel fabulous in your body than with a monthly massage. I realize this may be too much for some {monetarily and schedule-wise} but, for others, having this 'accountability' real helps some build their 'Healthy-Habits' muscle {and it's a fantastic price!} Don't know about you, but the notion of taking care of my body hasn't always been a top priority- I learned it all, and I learned that having...

Many people use the terms “deep tissue” and “deep pressure” interchangeably when they talk about their massage preferences. The two techniques, however, are quite different and have very distinct goals.

Deep tissue massage is also known as clinical massage and has a very specific purpose. It involves using focused pressure to directly manipulate tissue fibers to help muscle or connective tissue that has been injured or...

We've all heard the statement, "you'll see greater benefits with 'regular massage'" but what does that really mean? Some therapists will tell you to come back weekly, others say bi-weekly, once a month, so what gives? How can you decided what's best for you? The short and simple: Listen to your body. Each of us has our own rhythms so there's no one-way that fits all. If you're very active and/or live a high-paced life, getting a massage...
