"Hi Sue, I know what you mean, I have been known to go to the different organization sites and just pick out 10 or 12 people and just invite them. Sometimes it worked and sometimes not. I really appreciate the feedback I receive when I post a blog,…"

"hmm.. well if massage doesnt increase blood flow to muscles, than all my books in school are wrong... interesting.. what i dont understand is how are muscles taken out of the equation when massage in fact does increase blood flow?"

Your Migraine Could Be Telling You Something – Are You Listening?

I never get headaches unless I drink more than one cocktail late at night. I am sure we have all awoken to a screaming headache after a night of drinking but for those who suffer from migraines, this is noeasy matter.Recently, I’ve seen articles about migraines so I thought it may be helpful to write about what I have seen in clients who suffer from this debilitating issue.First, many people who suffer from migraines have long-term histories of stress, abuse, and unresolved emotional issues…See More

Stem Cell Treatment – Science is making headway

One of my fascinations of the human body is DNA and Stem Cells as they are the gateway to rejuvenating health on many levels. In European research labs they have been testing different treatments ranging fromstrokes and Alzheimer’s to neurological conditions and even cancer treatments.However, most of the data obtained is from client testimonials, not published results or peer reviewed studies. That doesn’t mean it’s not real, it’s just not quite ready for mainstream protocol regardingtreatment…See More

"These changes in temperature suggest corresponding changes in peripheral blood flow in the treated areas as well as in adjacent not-massaged areas. Moreover, the results suggest dynamic infrared thermography as a useful tool to measure noninvasive,…"

"Hello all It is ok for what we thought to be true and end up not being what we thought. As reseach contiues the massage community will be challeged by findings that go contrary to what we hold to be true and validate massage as well. It is time for…"

Christopher A. Moyer commented on Sue Hitzmann's blog post Does massage help improve blood flow to muscles?
"One more thought - earlier in your post you state that this isn't "the type of test that is trying to determine, “Does massage make people feel better or reduce depression or improve our ability to endure stress.” See, those…"

"This is an interesting post, Sue. Thanks for making it. You and Daniel, each in your own way, challenge the external validity of this study - that is, you both point out that the study does not actually test massage the way it is down in the real…"

Sue Hitzmann commented on Sue Hitzmann's blog post Does massage help improve blood flow to muscles?
"I totally agree with you Daniel. No one gets a massage DURING a workout or between sets so it sort of skews the study. But it shows that what we may think is happening may not be. The benefits of massage are clearly there but the WHY it's…"

Daniel Cohen commented on Sue Hitzmann's blog post Does massage help improve blood flow to muscles?
"I am not sure what the value is in this study. Isn't the increased circulation value of massage from relaxing over tightened (contracted) muscles? Why would it be tested a such an immediate time frame to exhaustion. I was never taught anything…"
