Transcript: Massage Therapy is AMAZING! Have you ever competed against Russians or Eastern Europeans in athletic competitions? Russian Sports Massage? Originally developed in the 1930's by Prof. Anatoli Sherbak. Added to and expanded by various Russian doctors and scientists during the 60's and 70's Studies kept in strict secrecy and almost nothing about them was known in the West During the 'Cold War', certain Soviet propoganda focused on the dominance of Russian athletes in the Olympics, and anything used to increase the performance of their athletes was kept secret The longevity of their athletes, which was significantly longer than those in the West at this time, was attributed to the complex pre and post event sports massage and procedures they used. Funding was cut off, and the research was practically abandoned. The only reason we know about Russian massage is because practitioners that were trained in it emigrated to the United States It would help facilitate the integration of massage therapy into all areas of healthcare. Lots of research has been done by the Russians, we just need to obtain it and pick up where they left off The structure of Russian Massage is ideal in a clinical sports setting Athletes get the same benefits with Russian massage as with other kinds Russian massage was first developed to be used in hospitals and clinics, not just as a pampering tool, and it's techniques would be easily integrated Using these techniques would require therapists to be more educated Train staff in massage techniques Massage Therapist working at separate location but contracted with team but the most effective way...?

Transcript: Massage Therapy History of Massage Therapy Massage therapy has been around since humans thought they needed to be pampered. The art of massage has been considered to be a luxury item or splurge for commoners. It was used to be thought as a sort of prostitution. The earliest massage therapy could be truly dated back to 2,700 B.C. of the Chinese (“History”). The first known published book was The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine; it expresses breathing exercises as well as hands and feet and the use of massage on the skin and flesh. Greek and Roman doctors used these techniques mostly on people who were paralyzed or were sick from fever and chills. On another part of the earth Indians were creating a different sort of healing process known in recent years as aromatherapy. It became widely used in India. Soon after in Sweden a doctor, Per Henrik Ling, formed a new style of massage that became known with its nationality. Swedish massage is based from physiology and gymnastics (“History”). The last known department of massage in a hospital setting was St. Thomas’s Hospital in London it soon left existence in 1934. As time passed it became recognized as an alternative and preventive health care. How many types are there and how do they work? There are more than eighty types of massage such as Swedish massage, sports massage, Rolfing, Shiatsu, acupressure and trigger point therapy (Encyclopedia 2). Swedish massage is the traditional form of massage using the techniques of effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement or in common terms stroking, kneading, friction and tapping (2). Sports therapy is like Swedish massage only put into the context of sports. Rolfing was developed by American Ida Rolf, which consisted of deep and somewhat painful massages. Shiatsu, as the name suggests, as well as acupressure are oriental including concepts of meridians and channels of energy flowing through one’s body (2). Trigger point therapy is a neuromuscular technique focusing on the painful area alone. massage therapy alone has many ways to make itself one’s life profession, but what if one wants something different once in awhile but still under their expertise. This is how music and massage therapy may come into play. Does it have any Pyschological effects ? The strongest effect of massage therapy is the psychological effect on the patient. Even if one of the main goals is to help a patient physically, a psychological benefit for a patient is better than treatment without any kind of benefit. Even if the massage is not helping the patient physically, the mental effects last a lot longer and may in turn cause the patient to believe that their therapy is truly impacting their physical body, in turn helping them to become healthier in the long run. What are the long and short term effects? You will probably feel relaxed after your massage. You will also probably have a good range of motion in your joints. These effects of massage are usually ahort term. Massage therapy should not be a replacement for regular exercise, good nutrition and other ways to reduce stress that reduce long term effects.

Types: There are many, many different types and techniques used in massage therapy. A few examples: Relaxation- A smooth, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, improves circulation and range of movement, and relieves muscular tension. Swedish- This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you. Sports- This is similar to Swedish massage but is geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries. Deep Tissue- This massage technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries. Thai- Thai massage is practiced on a firm mat on the floor instead of on a table, instrumental in the effective use of the practitioner’s body weight. Hot Stone- Specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well, but they can be other types. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release. Evidence of efficacy There are many clinical studies & journals on the efficacy of massage therapy. reduces systolic & diastolic blood pressure, reduces heart rate, back pain, burns, cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic illness or pain, immune function, infants & children, pregnancy, sports medicine, stress reduction Potential side-effects *Licensed massage therapist- if not done correctly could cause more damage. *DRINK LOTS OF WATER! Integument (skin): stimulates glands, leading to improvement in condition of skin. Muscular system: relieves muscular tension, soreness, fatigue, increased flexibility. Skeletal system: increased mineral retention, faster healing of fractures (due to increased circulation to blood vessels around the break). Nervous system: reduction in stress, anxiety & level of pain (due to increase of endorphins in body). More restful sleep. Endocrine System: triggers release of hormones in body. EX- dopamine = reduced level of stress or depression. Decreases cortisol levels = lowers stress levels & boosts immunity. Circulatory System: helps circulation of lymph = decreased swelling & weight loss (body stops retaining fluids). Respiratory System: strengthens respiratory muscles (vital capacity of lungs, peak expiratory flow) Digestive System: relieves constipation & gas, helps stimulate overall digestive process. Contra-indications abnormal body temperature- greater than 37.5 C Infectious & acute disease- influenza Inflammation- recently sprained ankle *Even though massaging directly on that are will be contraindicated, it may be very beneficial to a person to massage not on the area but around that area so that you can relax the muscles and prompting the body to naturally heal itself. After a person has had the inflammation subside after 72-96 hours, having a massage can dramatically help a person's mobility of joints as well as helping reduce scar tissue forming. varicose veins-Massaging legs which have large bulging varicose veins has the risk of releasing blood clots in the body's circulatory system osteoporosis- brittle bones high blood pressure fracture, burns, or bleeding blood clots opened sores or lesions systemic infections cancer Seek medical advice before having a massage if you suffer from phlebitis, thrombosis, varicose veins, severe acute back pain, or fever. Swellings, fractures, skin infections, or bruises should not be massaged. Lumps and swellings should be checked by your doctor. Massage of the abdomen, legs, and feet should not be given during the first three months of pregnancy. Cancer patients are best treated by specially trained practitioners who know which areas to avoid and which kind of massage is appropriate. *you do not want your therapist administering the massage to worsen any medical condition you may have, and you do not want to give anything contagious to your massage therapist. Qualifications licensing- Licensing is the strictest form of professional regulation, making it illegal for anyone to work as a massage therapist unless he or she has a license. national certification- Individuals who meet standards of education, training and/or experience and pass the examination are entitled to use the designation Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork
