  • Happy Life and Happy Bones

    Older women who are satisfied with their lives have higher bone density than their unsatisfied peers, a finding that adds weight to the idea that psychological health influences physical health.

    "Osteoporosis is a common disease which easily leads to bone fracture, and hip fractures in particular can have serious consequences with long-term hospitalizations and decreased health," lead investigator Päivi Rauma, of the Bone and Cartilage Research Unit, University of Eastern Finland, in Kuopio, told Medscape Medical News.

    "While life satisfaction is beneficial for overall health, focusing on subjective well-being and promoting life satisfaction can be one of the approaches that should be considered in order to decrease the adverse effect of aging on bone," Rauma said.

    The study was published in the November/December 2014 issue of Psychosomatic Medicine.

  • Massage Therapists are Naturally Empathetic

    empath
    With a natural ability to tap into Universal energy and heal others, empaths tend to gravitate toward work in the fields of holistic therapies and energy work. Our sensitivity allows us to feel the emotions of others, influence their bodies and minds, and create harmony within them. In order to do that, empaths must learn ways to keep the energy of others from becoming their own. Otherwise the balance and harmony we create in others will cause unbalance and disharmony within us.

    Empaths are usually non-violent and non-aggressive people who love peaceful and harmonious environments. Disharmony makes us uncomfortable. We will do everything we can to avoid it. If and when we are confronted with turbulence we will take on the role of peacemaker and will work toward a resolution as quickly as possible. I have played the role of peacemaker with family and friends since I was a little child.

    Because empaths feel things so deeply and tend to be nurturing, we often work as volunteers who passionately dedicate their time to helping animals, children, others in need, or the environment. We are excellent listeners who are truly interested in the happiness and welfare of others.

    Because of our natural ability to know things without being told, we can be a great asset to others because we tend to know where others are coming from. But this knowing ability also makes it very difficult for others to lie to us, put on a facade, or hide their emotions. We just know the feelings and intentions of other people, even if we have just met them. We are also adept at reading body language and noticing subtle inflections of speech that others might miss.

  • Massage Therapists Be Gentle With the Neck of Your Massage Therapy Client

    neck-massage-tense-400x400
    From Dr Sandra Fryhofer of Medicine Matters. Cervical artery dissection is serious. It's most prevalent in the upper cervical spine and can involve the internal carotid or vertebral arteries. It's an important cause of stroke in both young and middle-aged patients. Dissections can be spontaneous or traumatic from causes as varied as a high-speed car crash to a sporting activity such as heavy weightlifting, even golf, tennis, or yoga, to ordinary activities such as sneezing and coughing. Dissection can also occur with cervical hyperextension or hyperrotation. It's been associated with CMT—cervical spine manipulation therapy—including adjustments by chiropractors. That's the point of this new report published in Stroke, which highlights the link between neck manipulation and cervical dissection.

    Okay. Real story. Real patient. My patient. A new patient, a middle-aged executive, comes in with severe neck pain and headache worse than any headache he's ever had before. Earlier that day he'd seen a chiropractor. The diagnosis was left vertebral artery dissection, revealed by CT angiograms. My thought at the time was concern that manipulation by the chiropractor probably had a role. That was 10 years ago.

    Neck pain is common, especially because we spend so much time typing on computers. Neck pain has many going to massages, maybe seeing chiropractors. But the lesson I learned from my patient is reinforced by this study. Be gentle with your neck. To paraphrase the researchers' findings, although a direct cause-and-effect relationship between neck manipulation and cervical artery dissection has not been established and the absolute risk is probably low, cervical artery dissection can result in serious neurologic injury.

    Back to my patient. After 6 months of blood thinners he fully recovered, but he hasn't been back to see the chiropractor. The moral of this story: Be gentle with your neck and be aware of the link between cervical manipulation and cervical artery dissection.

  • Study: Mediterranean Diet May Help Slow Aging Process

    Mediterranean_main
    Could the foods we eat could slow down or speed up the aging process? And if so, what foods potentially offer a fountain of youth and why? According to a new study published in The British Medical Journal, eating a Mediterranean diet (see sidebar) might help extend your lifespan because it appears to be associated with longer telomere length, which is an established marker of slower aging.

    Telomeres sit on the end of chromosomes (like the plastic tips on the end of shoelaces), stopping them from fraying and scrambling the genetic codes they contain. In healthy people, telomeres shorten progressively throughout life, more than halving in length from infancy to adulthood, and halving again in the very elderly.

    A Life-extending Diet

    A Mediterranean diet typically includes:

    Large amounts of: vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (such as peas, beans and lentils), unrefined grains and olive oil
    Moderately high amounts of: fish
    Low intake of: dairy products, meat and poultry; saturated fats
    Regular, but moderate intake of alcohol (specifically wine with meals)
    Shorter telomeres are thus associated with lower life expectancy and greater risk of age-related diseases. Lifestyle factors, such as obesity, cigarette smoking and consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks, have all been linked to people having shorter telomeres than typically occur in people of a similar age. Oxidative stress and inflammation have also been shown to speed up telomere shortening.

    By contrast, fruits, vegetables and nuts—key components of the Mediterranean diet—have well-known antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. With that in mind, a team of U.S. researchers, led by Immaculata De Vivo, Associate Professor at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, set out to examine whether adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with longer telomere length.

    The Study

    Researchers analyzed data on 4,676 healthy middle-aged women from the Nurses’ Health Study—an ongoing study tracking the health of more than 120,000 nurses since 1976. Participants completed detailed food questionnaires and had a blood test to measure telomere length.

    A diet score ranging from 0 to 9 points was calculated for each participant, with a higher score representing a closer resemblance to the Mediterranean diet.

    After adjusting for other potentially influential factors, researchers found that greater adherence to the Mediterranean diet was significantly associated with longer telomeres. Each one-point change in diet score corresponded on average to 1.5 years of telomere aging.

    Importantly, none of the individual dietary components was associated with telomere length. In other words, no single food was responsible for the longer telomeres. Instead, researchers emphasize the importance of looking at the overall quality of a person’s diet rather than separate dietary factors such as whole-grain intake, for example.

    “To our knowledge, this is the largest population-based study specifically addressing the association between Mediterranean diet adherence and telomere length in healthy, middle-aged women,” the researchers noted in their published report. “Our results further support the benefits of adherence to the Mediterranean diet for promoting health and longevity.”

    A Mediterranean diet is the cornerstone of dietary advice in cardiovascular disease prevention, and the fact that it also links with a biomarker of slower aging is reassuring, says Professor Peter Nilsson from Lund University, Sweden in an accompanying editorial.

    He suggests that genetic background factors, reflecting ancestry, could probably explain some of the variation in the association between dietary patterns and telomere length, and that future studies on this question “should take into account the possibility of interactions between genes, diet, and sex.”

    How Health and Fitness Professionals Can Apply the Science

    While it is outside the scope of practice for a health and fitness professional to recommend specific meal plans, it is a good idea to make clients aware of studies such as these that demonstrate the numerous health benefits that come from making healthy food choices. The Mediterranean diet provides a great framework for individuals who want to improve the overall quality of their dietary habits.

  • The Buddha Smile

    smiling-buddha
    The Buddha smiles because the possibilities and the beauty that the present moment holds thrill her. She tears up on the sight of a beautiful flower or the smile of a child. The Buddha is totally present to enjoy the glory of the present moment and lesson teaches us to be present in the here and now.

    The Buddha lets go and doesn’t attach to anything. The Buddha knows that everything is impermanent. He knows that his children, wife, success, and social status will one day no longer exist. All things that have a form must die and wither away.

    This knowledge is deeply rooted in the Buddha and therefore, doesn’t suffer. That doesn’t mean the Buddha doesn’t strive to achieve in life or that personal relationships are voided. The Buddha is detached towards all things and situations and can handle whatever comes in life with grace.

    The Buddha faces death fearlessly. To the Buddha, the knowledge that all living things are mortal is never forgotten. Having meditated on the Buddha's own death, and sees it merely as just another door to walk through. The Buddha sees it as a benediction and a great adventure that has yet to experience.

    The true Buddha is in all us. The choice is ours. Namaste massage therapists.

  • Cultivating Inner Peace and Happiness as a Massage Therapist

    Cartoon
    Happiness can influence how long we live, the diseases we contract, and how we recover from illnesses. Performing massage therapy is a cup that overflows for the massage therapist and the massage therapy client unless you work in a factory setting or coloring outside the lines of ethical massage therapy. Lissa Rankin, MD in her book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself says that,

    Happiness effects life expectancy. People with higher levels of “subjective well-being” live up to ten years longer than those who don’t. Happiness also affects some health outcomes, including success rates of stem-cell transplantation, control of diabetes, rates of full-blown AIDS…and recovery from stroke, heart surgery, and hip fracture. (3)

    Having a positive psychological stance in life lowers overall mortality, extends longevity, and reduces the severity of most degenerative diseases.

    Reducing or removing the obstacles to happiness allows happiness to emerge. Similar to dieting, knowing what not to eat is as important as knowing what you should eat. Knowing what makes you unhappy and working to remove or diminish those things helps immensely. Gretchen Rubin is the author of The Happiness Project, (4) a book and a blog about her adventures learning to be happier. In a Psychology Today article she says:

    Although it’s helpful to focus on the positive, to count your blessings, and to remind yourself of what makes you happy, it’s also very important to pay attention to what’s undermining your happiness. (5)

    Rubin strongly suggests that you ask yourself what the obstacles are to your happiness. When you identify an obstacle be specific. What exactly is bothering you? Why is this having such an impact? And finally, what do your need to do to change your behavior?

    Obstacles could include:

    Equating success with money and status
    Blaming others for your unhappiness, it’s always someone else’s fault
    Being afraid
    Staying in toxic relationships
    Not being honest with yourself and others
    Focusing your life obsessively on making good impressions
    Neglecting introspection and awareness of yourself, of your values and beliefs
    Needing to make everyone else happy
    Thinking life should always be wonderful.
    Healthy, Loving Relationships –

    “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu

    Lissa Rankin notes that:

    The reality is that loneliness causes stress, while loving community relaxes you. The effects of stress and relaxation don’t just affect the mind; they affect the body and the mind. (3)

    Rankin goes on to underscore how important loving relationships and supportive community are in our lives:

    In fact, this factor alone may affect your body more profoundly than what you eat, how much you drink, whether or not you smoke, or how much you exercise. (3)

    Research (6) demonstrates clearly that supportive relationships and community, as well as belief in a higher power extends longevity and brings deeper levels of happiness. This extends to helping the sick and the poor and unemployed. Pope Francis puts it succinctly:

    When we are generous in welcoming people and sharing something with them—some food, a place in our homes, our time—not only do we no longer remain poor: we are enriched. (7)

    The modern ideals of total autonomy and radical self-reliance are profoundly misplaced. It is incumbent on us to either change or move away from toxic personal and social relationships. Our happiness and health depend on it.

    Remember, happiness comes from the inside and manifests itself in loving personal relationships and our connection with the world. It is of the utmost importance that we seek out people and communities that offer us love and understanding and to which we can offer the same. It is important that we work to see that all people regardless of ethnicity, race or sexual orientation have the opportunity to live without fear and enjoy the fruits of loving relationships. All of us flourish in love.
