Goldilocks wouldn’t give up until she found her napping spot that wasn’t too firm, wasn’t too soft, but felt Just Right. It’s likely she read this blog before visiting the three little bears’ cottage.

Since 2009  massage therapy research has finally joined the fast track within medical circles. For all the millennia that humans have applied massage as a therapy, we practitioners have wondered what it would take to get the benefits of massage off the anecdotal shelf and onto the shelves that house annals of medical research. Bringing benefits into the scientific spotlight holds a lot of promise for those who need medical massage methods to heal a disease and prevent the onset of another. Tammy Paine, one of our massage therapists, recently forwarded a well written and comprehensive article about recent medical discoveries relating to massage therapy. I’m truly impressed with the author’s ability to pull together all the pieces of a complex puzzle we call Massage Therapy.

Words Are Magical:
