An Update to Nurturing Touch for Japanese Orphans

Elevated blood pressure has often been called the "silent killer" due to the fact that one may never know that hypertension is a problem until a heart attack or stroke strikes. One in every three adults in developed countries has hypertension, including approximately 50 million adults in the U.S., according to information from 2009 cited in this month's article, "Durability of Effect of Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure," which was published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine.

In this day and age, clients who are in pain are seeking rapid relief and rehabilitation long term. Many have turned to massage and unfortunately have not had the relief they are seeking. Sometimes, it's because the body just takes time to heal but unfortunately, more often than not, it's because the massage therapist does not have the knowledge and skills to help the client achieve long lasting and significant changes early in the treatment.

It's a common misconception that physicians who take the Hippocratic Oath swear to "do no harm." Actually, they don't; this phrase appears in the context of a different work by Hippocrates where he first instructs doctors to "help." Nevertheless, the words "do no harm" have the force of truth behind them that appeals to health care practitioners, as well as to clients and patients. Of course, individuals seeking health care hope not just to avoid harm, but also to receive help with their healing.

It was a cold December in 2009 when MaryFrances Barbisan, a registered nurse and massage therapist, escaped the frigid Canadian air with a last-minute getaway to Mexico. As she strolled along the sugar-white shoreline, she came upon a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. "It was so luxurious and mysterious, it captivated me," she says. Someday, she thought, I want to be the kind of woman who rents a house like that on a beach like this.
