every wanted to know what is causing your shoulder pain?

Great video by Dr Nabil Ebraheim which gives very clear images of the shoulder anatomy.  click here

In a massage treatment with AOB Therapies my goal is to release the tight short muscles. This takes the tension off the overstretched muscles which are typically full of tender points and put strain on the tendons. This helps reduce the pain.

Treatments available with Anne in Roscommon and Athlone

Researchers are learning how massage soothes aching muscles

What happens to muscles during a rubdown” is an article by Nicholar Bakalar.

“Researchers are learning how massage soothes aching muscles. ..They found that massage reduced the production of compounds called cytokines, which play a critical role in inflamation. Massage also stimulated mitochondria, the tiny powerhouses inside cell nuclei that convert glucouse into the energy essential for cell function and repair…”

Thanks to my client Joe for drawing my attention to this research.

RosWin meeting Jan 2012

Thanks to Ronan and Geraldine for their talks last night.

Geraldine’s talk was great and helping us to remember all these social media tools are “another channel to engage with prospective and current customers”.
Ronan’s talk was lovely. “Taking each day as a special day” is a very important. “Having passion for what we do” is key. If that is massage and neuromuscular therapy as in my case or what ever your business is.  Thanks again to the 2 speakers.

Have a look at some of the photos we took on the night on my www.facebook.com/AOBTherapies

Aromatherapy massage – what is it?

Using a blend of essential oils for a massage is called aromatherapy massage. Body or part body massage is the most effective way to use essential oils but note the essential oils need to be blended in carrier oil. I use customised blend of essential oils for each massage treatment in Roscommon and Athlone. For example I might blend Bergamot, Frankincense and Ylang Ylang in a carrier oil for some who feels like their immune system is struggling and they are in a heighten state of anxiety or suffering from panic attacks. The blend is absorbed into the persons system and continues to work after the massage treatment creating feelings of calm and well being. 

The time taken for the essential oils to pass around the body is dictated by the individual metabolic rate. i.e. children will react quicker to oils than adults.

Ylang Ylang essential oil – it’s uses

Please dilute the essential oil in a carrier oil before using it for massage.

Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) 

Ylang Ylang oil is distilled from the flowers of the plant.

During the process a number of different grades of oil are taken off. The first is ylang extra, and it is the most expensive and most desired by perfumers.

3 succesive distillations follow – grade I, II & III which are progressively less complex and lose more of the subtle top notes

The first oil that is drawn from the flowers is the best quality, though subsequent yields have similar therapeutic features, but the perfume is less refined.

 Mind; Excellent for excitable conditions regulating the adrenaline flow and relaxing the nervous system, resulting in a feeling of joy. It could well ease feelings of anger, anxiety, shock, panic and fear.

Body; 

It is very good at regulating the flow of adrenaline and thus slows its effects reducing stress, anger, frustration, panic and fear.

It is very good at balancing the hormones making it valuable for problems associated with the reproductive system. It is an antidepressant.

Its sedative properties are helpful with rapid breathing, rapid heartbeat and high blood pressure. Has a relaxing effect on the nervous system.

Ylang Ylang is heralded by many as an aphrodisiac.

Effect on the skin; Versatile oil, having a balancing action on sebum so making it effective on both oily and dry skins. Also a tonic and stimulating effect on the scalp promoting a more luxurious hair growth.

Precaution; Excessive use may lead to headaches and nausea.

One thing to remember: Ylang Ylang has a euphoric effect, promoting positive emotions in the user and calming and sedating in times of stress.
