  What Do Your Clients Teach You?  
By Ann Catlin, LMT, NCTMB, OTR
Each person we touch becomes a teacher. If we listen with our ears, eyes and heart, they teach us how to best serve their needs and, in turn, our own. In my work with seniors, I've had many such teachers and one in particular stands out. I met Ruth fifteen years ago when I was working at a retirement community where I developed a wellness program. Ruth attended a presentation I gave about the benefits of massage for older adults.

It's noon on a Wednesday when your phone rings - your two o'clock can't make it and they have to cancel. That time slot is going to be incredibly difficult to fill, meaning you are going to have to take a loss. The same thing happens next month, when this same client calls in to cancel last minute.
As massage therapists, we see a considerable number of clients with neck and back pain. The constant with these clients is an imbalance of the pelvis and exaggerated curvatures of the spine. The argument can be made that the majority of back pain is due to a degree of scoliosis.

Massage is great for many soft-tissue pathologies. However, sometimes various conditions exist that seem like a common pathology, but then don't respond to the treatment.

In this article I want to stay narrowly focused on the hypothesis that human tissue adhesions are very closely associated with hide glue. Hide glue is made from proteins extracted from the skins of mammals.

Do you ever wonder why there is limited literature on massage therapy and certain conditions, such as anorexia? Research in the field of massage therapy is relatively new, so it's important to examine the effects of massage on different conditions to determine if large-scale studies are warranted.
