Do you mean to the client? Or to the Therapist? The answer is yes to both, honestly. There are side effects for Certified Massage Therapists that overwork themselves, and don't use correct body stances and techniques, like bad back pain and carpal tunnel. But with correct posture and stretching exercises, massage therapy can be a very empowered and successful career.
And on getting a massage? It is just HEAVEN! It relieves stress, tension, aches and pains. It clears the muscles of toxins built up by unhealthy diet and lack of exercising. It de-clutters the mind body and spirit all in one. It is soo great for the body and the soul. I recommend it to EVERYONE! I have been a CMT for ten years now, I love to help others feel better!

When tension is released in your body, you can experience unexpected emotions like weeping or laughing. Compare this phenomena to our laughing so hard, we cry. A classic case of our body unfamiliar with the strong emotion, vents the excess through our tears. But if you are open to it, you actually can be refreshed and even spiritually cleansed.

Suggestions for some natural pain relief remedies


Chronic pain is a very difficult and stressful thing to be living with. And although pain medication still remains the most popular way to treat pain, there are thousands of natural pain relief remedies out there that might help you avoid the drugs.

Why is pain medication bad for you?
Pain medication is sometimes unavoidable, but you need to know that there are consequences for taking medication. All painkillers contain ingredients that can, if used incorrectly or too often, cause damage to your organs.
Pain medication related side effects is one of the major causes of people having to show up at the ER every year.
Also, pain medication brings with it the risk of addiction. People find it hard to believe that something as innocent as a pain relief tablet could lead to a drug habit but it has happened to millions of people.

Okay, so that's the bad news.... now here's some tips for using natural rememdies as an alternative:
Alternative therapies
Reflexology and acupuncture can be a great tool in pain control. As pain causes stress and muscle tension, both these types of therapies not only have been shown to reduce pain levels but also aid relaxation and stress reduction.

Herbs and spices
if you look online you'll see that there are many basic herbs and spices that are used in every day cooking that can help act as anti-inflammatories. Examples are Tumeric and Ginger.
Or Fish oil which can help with joint pain.

Water
Other alternatives to pain medication include massages and any interaction with hot water, such as hot tubs, jacuzzi or just resting an aching body in a swimming pool.

In summary, before you hit the bottle of painkillers just think that there might be a natural alternative which you could try first, which will not only help you with pain but also be gentler on your body.
Feel Good!

How to massage the back to cure back pain


Back pain is one of the most common ailments for which people turn to massage therapists to alleviate. There are even a number of massage therapies that pay special attention to the back. You do not have to set an appointment with a massage therapist, however, to get a simple but relaxing back massage. A back massage is something you and your partner can learn for yourselves and give to each other whenever you feel that it is needed.
Enumerated below is a step-by-step routine on how to massage your partner's back. But before you proceed to work on your partner, make sure that the atmosphere in the room where you will be doing the massage is conducive to relaxation.
A clean room is a relaxing room, so make sure that the room is clean.
Toss a CD of relaxing instrumentals into your player and, for added effect, light some scented candles.
Also, take a shower and warm your hands before giving a massage; you need to be in a relaxed state yourself in order to be able to give an effective massage.
The back massage routine listed below makes use of effleurage, which is a massage stroke that is long and sweeping. It is meant to loosen and relax the muscles and to make each part of the body feel connected to each other.
Since this is a back massage, make your partner lay on his or her stomach. If you have a massage table at home, that would be awesome, but the bed or the couch will do as long as it is firm and your partner would be comfortable laying there.
Rub some massage oil in your hands to warm them up. Then, using both hands, apply massage oil to your partner's back and make firm strokes from the lower back up to the neck. Trace a circular path on your partner's back with your hands when you return your hands to the lower back.
Press the heels of your hands to the lower back of your partner, one at each side of the spine, and move them in a circle starting from the lower back, coming upward to the center of the back and then outward until you get your hands back to your starting position. Slowly move your strokes upward until you reach the shoulders.
With your fingertips, and with one hand lying on top of the other, press against the muscles of the back on the side opposite where you are standing. This means that if you are standing to the right of your partner, press to the left side of his back. Gradually move from the lower back to the shoulders, and then repeat on the other side.
Using firm and deliberate pressure, let your thumbs travel the length of both sides of the spine, moving towards the shoulders, then returning to the lower back. Find the knots and the bunched up spots on the area being covered.
Using your forearms this time, apply pressure to the lower back, and then rub your arm that is closer to your partner’s head towards the lower end of the shoulder blades.
While performing the massage thus far, you may have noticed some knots and bunched up spots on your partner’s back, or he/she may have told you about particularly painful areas on his/her back. Press your thumb on each painful spot until the pain lessens or disappears.
Repeat steps 2 to 4, and then lightly tap your fingertips along your partner's back. Afterwards, give your partner a glass of water or two and then leave him or her to rest and relax.

Massaging neck rest question


The massaging neck rests usually offers you two relaxation therapies: variable speed vibration massage to customize massage intensity and heat. Some of this devices even have a "comforting sounds" option (which makes relaxing sounds). Besides that most of the massaging neck rests offers the same featurs. They wrap comfortably around your neck and shoulders, supporting your head in a comfortable position (Usually - memory-foam filling and a soft fabric cover). Hand-held control adjusts the vibrations to your specific comfort level, without having to stop the massage. Includes plug-in AC adapter, or you can use four AA batteries
