  1. Thank you so much. It is your great guidance and teaching resources that made this possible. She continues to maintain w self care alone. This is even more remarkable in light of her line of work. She works at a local plant nursery and farm doing physical labor! This includes pulling weeds manually! She is a tribute two the powerful impact of self-care and maintaining of the restorative nature medical massage.
  2. I now have a couple clients who are committed to MM support for scoliosis. They are doing great! In one case we even have before and after pictures. Here is the link incase anyone is interested. Thank you for all your support, Dr Ross. https://www.restoredbytouch.com/scoliosis-specialty/ The person featured in the pictures continues to improve. She just graduated from 2 sessions per month to 1 session per month. At least we will try that given her ability to hold tx results during travel to Europe that included a lot of hiking. The trip pushed her tx out to 3 weeks. She's doing so well des
  3. It's been a while since I started new topic here. Currently, it is not obvious how to do that. 

    "Status Updates" label seems unclear. And, there is no way to add title with that. I'll post this as status update to see what happens.

      Hmm. Maybe you've changed your format into more of a Facebook-style forum???

      I hope not; Facebook is very difficult to navigate in terms of finding information at a later date. I belong to a garden forum that is more like your former style. That is very easy to navigate, categorize posts, and conduct information search options to retrieve useful concepts at a later time.

      Ok, I figured it out. I now see there is separate option to posted in the categories if we access through the titles themselves. 

  4. It's great to know there is a solution to this common problem.
  5. Update: It turned out this patient had been misdiagnosed. Corrected dx: torn meniscus. This makes the results even more remarkable. And what's more amazing, she has been able to maintain without ongoing MM. She is good at self-care. She has a flair-up once in a while but she is able to manage it herself. It's been more than 6 months. She was able to meet her number one objective--We ended her short break protocol just in time for her to dance at her daughter's wedding pain-free!
  6. I love my career path. Through chair massage at the South Seminole Farm and Nursery, we educated the community about medical massage and raised nearly $200 for Christian Help--a local charity known for successfully preventing homelessness! The highlight of the fundraiser was the lady w pain preventing her from standing straight. After massage, she walked upright and announced to a staffer, "I'm 50% better! I get massage regularly, but that was different! Wow; this much relief in 15 minutes!" The staffer explained, "The difference is that therapist has advanced training in medical massage.
  7. Here is Dr. Ross' reply: You include QL if it carries the tension and if not skip this. If the patient obese instead of lifting you use lateral shift of the muscle tissue Dr. Ross Update: Patient reported no pain and no tension after second session Patient reported no pain and no tension after second session when we used OA protocol. Pre-tx she had reported PL4, but until midday, she had held the previous level of release (3.5 from pre-tx of 8). Apparently, a great indicator of perfect timing with the short break sessions! Thank you Dr. Ross!
  8. After viewing the OA protocol, more questions arise. What about the obese client? Lifting the muscles as indicated in several of the techniques is blocked by adipose tissue. Do we go through the motion as best we can or is there an alternative technique for improved effectiveness? Also, there is no indication that trigger points are specifically addressed. Trpts are present w/ my client. I'm assuming they would also be present w/ OA. So, I'm assuming it's not necessary to address them through the compression holds as we have in the with other protocols such as QL syndrome or trap syndrome
  9. SOM is the best educational opportunity I've experienced for massage therapy. My first SOM class was a cathartic experience as the pieces of the modality puzzle started to come together. I had already noticed that a combination of modalities worked better than the isolated applications. Patterns were also emerging in terms of optimal order. How wonderful to have found SOM providing a strong theoretical foundation and clinically tested protocols beyond what I could have ever contrived solo! So my latest adventure in therapeutic massage came when someone complained of knee pain with dx of b
