I think that we put alot of mind and effort into clients and their massage sessions and if we do not know how to process information and learn to leave things at the door from the previous session then yes it will become draining and hard to perform massages one after the other. staying positive and not taking things to heart is going to help keep from letting negative energy into your sessions.

I think Nikki should of eased into her sessions since she had more then normal that day and had changed how she was continuing the sessions. Stretching and proper standing should of been used to ensure she was not harming herself while performing the massages all day long. taking breaks and making sure to eat and stay hydrated are a big issue as well. I would make sure the nikki had ate, drank, stretched and stood in the proper ways to keep from hurting herself and having a hard time with pressure to clients.

Mind- Body Interventions is a therapeutic approach to reducing the symptoms of a condition or disorder which utilizes the power of the mind to bring about the change in the body or brain to action to actually alleviate symptoms of the condition.Ensuring someone uses their mind to change how their body reacts to something. almost a mind over matter situation where if you can control one you can control the other with help and practice which are healthy for the client and does not cause futher harm to them.

I think since Adrienne`s dr referred her to see a massage therapist he can go ahead but use caution and appropriate pressure in areas. be sure to check in with her on the technique and pressure to ensure he is not hurting her and she is finding it relaxing and peaceful. i would avoid jostling and similar moves to not further upset her stomach.

Both studies were conducted in their own way however the more controlled study will have the best results. Keeping things limited and at a lower number will always give more accurate numbers and answers to questions and studies like this. although both studies had people benefit from it and some not so much it will always vary from person to person. If i were to do the studies i would keep the numbers small and have people the same age, life style and health do it and make sure it was approved by their drs if need be. If i had to submit this to anyone i would want to include all sides of the study because that is the only way someone can know the pros and cons.

I think as a massage therapist we are concerned and focused on others and dont take the time to think about our needs and do best practices to keep ourseves healthy and happy. so to listen to your body and get the help you need before it is too late. keeping your body healthy is most important.

So with this situation i would ask mark if he was aware of the marks, if he knew what they were depending on his answer i would either not proceed with the massage or avoid the area and wear gloves to protect not only him but myself as well. if he was unaware of the marks i would ask him if i could grab my suporvisor to look at this to ensure everyones safety.

I think boundaries are very important. There are lines that can not be crossed and if they are you have ways to handle those things. if you stay open and honest and clear with boundaries then there will never be issues.

They quiz gave me a 15 which i feel now is accurate but a few years ago it would of been a totally different number. I know how to set boundaries and keep them with people.
