Massage therapy is not a remedy for all diseases. Yet it is so powerful, that for the sake of one’s well-being, it cannot be ignored. We cannot rely on “feel good” sensations only. To achieve the best results, treatment strategies and underlying concepts have to be understood and step-by-step protocols should be followed to the letter. Only in this way, massage therapy methodology contributes to human health in a dramatic way. The simplicity of massage is learned by discipline, desire, dedication, and acceptance of the mission.
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, once said, “The doctor must be experienced in many modalities but especially in massage. Massage can cause tight joints to relax and loose ones to become stable.”
Thousands of years have passed. Today we have much additional scientific data, clinical outcomes and experience regarding the power of massage therapy. It is not limited to the treatment of support and movement systems only. I hope that my blogs will contribute to your inspiration, passion and love of this wonderful treatment method. I believe in simple approach to therapy by means of massage.
I also know, that without home self-massage program, it would be difficult to sustain results in cases of painful back and limp disorders, stress related illnesses such as essential hypertension, tension headaches, anxieties, sleep disorders, major depressive disorders etc. Subsequently, I will try to share my knowledge in a practical way that, in some way, could contribute to your well-being.
