Stone Massage Can Greatly Help a Person’s Grieving Process


Stone Massage can greatly help a person’s grieving process through the power of release. The stones facilitate the removal of negative energy from the body.

grievingStone Massage Therapy for the Grieving Client


The grieving client, having experienced a personal tragedy, is in emotional pain due to their loss. The healing path is different for each individual. As therapists, we can all relate and remember the first time one of our clients had an emotional release during the massage treatment.

My first experience in this regard was with Mrs. Jones, who had recently lost her husband. 20 minutes into the massage, I began to feel the tremendous grief coming from her body and soul. Then, the sobbing began. I placed my hands on her. No words were necessary, just healing touch. I gently placed a warm stone in each of her hands and one on her heart chakra and simply waited for her to release her emotional pain. After the session, she related to me how very helpful the experience had been and that she was returning for additional treatments, which she did. We are still friends to this day.

I can relate to the tremendous pain having lost my own mother only two weeks ago.

The Power of Human Touch


  • a Mother’s hand
  • a Father’s hand
  • a Sibling’s hand
  • a Teacher’s hand
  • a First Love’s hand

These have all left us with indelible images and feelings of positive nurturing touch. We are indeed wired to interpret human touch as the most direct form of communication and conduit for the healing power of love.

We need need more human contact than we normally receive on a daily basis in order to reap the corresponding health benefits. Touch is truly a fundamental human need and research strongly indicates touch can help prevent both physical and emotional trauma. Like laughter, human touch can lengthen and improve the quality of your life. Human touch can improve your immune system and is one of the most powerful healing remedies.

Professional massage therapist services are invaluable, from the sheer pleasure of the method, to the healing of ailments and the easing of pain, as well as the relieving of anxiety and stress.

I encourage everyone to partake of a professional massage as often as is practical in order to improve your lives.

Origin of the Word “Massage”

Greetings Fellow Massage Therapists and Healing Enthusiasts,

The words we speak carry tremendous meaning, often more significant than we may even be aware of. Let us delve into the origin and meaning of the word “massage.”

 According to one Etymology dictionary, the English word massage is derived from the French word massage, meaning “friction or kneading.” The French may have borrowed the word massage from colonial India, where the Portuguese used the word amasser, or “to knead” from the Latin word massa, meaning “mass, dough.”  It also may derive from the Arabic word massa, meaning “to touch, feel, handle;”

Remember that you are a member of a select group of healers, who have been touching lives across the world since the beginning of civilization through the power of the healing touch. We are all connected.

Massage and Lower Back Pain

grieving I find in my personal practice, as well as the industry in general, back pain has increased tremendously, and is one of the most common complaints. Research indicates that qualified massage therapist are generally more effective at dealing with general lower back pain, then other more traditional methods, such as painkillers, anti inflammatory drugs, or physical therapy.

If you have ever experienced lower back pain, then you know the
feeling of pain relief; AHHHHHH what a relief it is.

Depending on the individual situation, always making certain a doctor’s evaluation is shared, different massage techniques can be incorporated. Depending on the particular cause of the pain, some of them are Swedish, warm & cool stone therapy, deep tissue manipulation, etc. are suitable for pain related points, where certain ligaments, joints, and postural alignment are targeted.

Massage therapy speaks for itself, clients report significant lessening of pain as well as improvement of motor function.

Presenting a Three-Part Series on Understanding Domestic Violence – Part 3

Presenting a Three-Part Series on Understanding Domestic Violence
Part 3


How Can We Help?

As we begin to understand the jaw-dropping statistics concerning domestic violence (Part 2), we learn that the prevalence of family violence in our society means that eventually someone we know, in our social circle, or someone we love, will be affected.

We need to understand what makes it difficult for the abused to leave; it is an individual choice, uniquely their own. Often, there are many factors and obstacles to leaving, such as intimidation, children, lack of resources, low self-esteem and even religion.

To the untrained eye, one might not know what questions to ask, and sometimes tend to blame the victim.

As a massage therapist, we are in a unique position to help. We can show our support by familiarizing ourselves with the victim assistance facilities as well as theprograms in our particular areas, for referral. We can help empower these victims. Women respond when told THEY CAN DO IT!

Share the coping tools you are familiar with. Most of all, use your healing touch; it provides such as important link on the journey to heart and soul healing. We can make a tremendous lasting difference in each others lives.

Blessings Always,
