Post traumatic stress disorder.

The above video is a presentation from 2010 dupuytrens symposium.

The presenter reveals the believed complex processes that are taking place at a cellular level and why and how the drug treatment her company promotes may work. She does such an excellent job of explaning the these processes it also reveals how we can help with massage!  


To many MT's can't stomach cadaver style lectures so its time to introduce them to a symbolic artifical membrane/membrane's that connect them with the amazing massage they are doing by working with fascia.



Proper clinical trails may be impossible due to the volitility of the condition, indeed one could argue that in pursuing a favourable outcome we meet the neuroplasticity of the brain at it most defensive in obtaining substantive long term elimination of symtoms.

Misconceptions about knee pain "its deep in the joint/cartilage, arthritic, part of getting older?" simple solutions for you and your clients.

I have recently asked all my clients about their knee pain. They had not perceived massage as able to offer effective relief as they frequently thought it was bone or cartilage pain.

The following, is a suggested method you can try, on a big cross section of your clients from athletes to chronic pain sufferers.

First practice this during "swap treatments " with your fellow massage…

Chronic pain, your clients FIRST visit.

I've just had my most successful year so far with people suffering chronic pain. Thoracic outlet syndrome 9yrs , Migraine 20 yrs , Back Pain 8 yrs and many more.

I wish to state how important your clients first visit is, and how you might attempt to set yourself apart from "other professionals " in the eyes of your new client.


You must allocate extra time to their first visit to enable them to relax and tell you everything thats on their minds in…

Protecting female therapists from males seeking sexual services.

Its already been the subject of many discussions on here, but are there any websites specifically set up to educate new female therapists on exactley how to word their web pages to minimise this occuring.

Here in the UK we've still got therapists web pages listing home phone numbers, full home addresses, and useing wording begging the double entendre.

Please tell me someone has a great site to which I can refere these innocents.

Hip Rotators, treatment and Pelvic stability issues ?

Hi all,
How often do you treat your clients hip rotators and how important do you view their ability to stabilize the head of the femur onto the Pelvis.
Its an intimate area to treat (I work through a towel side lying) does this cause you any problems?
Regards steve

Axotomy Upregulates the Anterograde Transport and Expression of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor by Sensory Neurons

Three distinct axonal transport rates for tau, tubulin, and other microtubule-associated proteins: evidence for dynamic interactions of tau with microtubules in vivo.

Our findings also reveal differences among various MAPs in their interactions with microtubules and provide evidence that assembly and reorganization of the microtubule network is an active process even after axons establish connections and fully mature.
