Self Massage and Self Care

In Massage and Self Care on October 21, 2010 at 5:27 am

You are not always able to receive the healing touch from a trained massage therapist. While that is a great pity you can learn to reconnect with your body by yourself and it can be a profound practice. So let’s learn a few self-massage techniques that you can use to improve your health.
The sensation of touch is one of the most profound and healing experiences we share. Often, we become consumed and over-burdened with our mental thoughts that we are completely disconnected from our bodies. Through touch, we can reconnect our mind and body allowing relaxation and the release from stress and tension.

Tips for Self-Massage
Self-massage can be an excellent daily practice to keep your body healthier and your mind more relaxed.
Remember to focus your mind on your breath to enhance the healing effects. When you hands become warm during this practice, you are guiding your own self-healing energy to your body.
Self-massage can be done at home without any special tools or training. Just feel your body and it will guide you in your self-massage practice.

I plan to make this a 5 part series which will include self massage techniques for: Qi Gong Tapping Massage, Abdominal Massage, Hand and Foot Massage, Ear Massage and Self Massage Tools.

If you have suggestions as to anything else to add to the list of Self Massage Topics or any questions on the subject, please share.

Hello, for those of you who do not know me, my name is Anthony Statler.  I have been a licensed massage therapist in the Kansas City Area for 11 years and have decided that is what I want to be when I grow up.

I am here to discuss all things health, wellness, fitness, meditation, qigong, chinese medicine, bio-physics, massage related and well frankly any other interesting topic that comes along.

I would love to hear from you about your own knowledge and experiences with massage and other health and wellness practices.  So please chime in.  Thanks.
