If a person feels threatened, the body will reorganize its priorities to maintain homeostasis. Resources are moved from one area to another in order to better cope with the stress. These changes include:

• Reduction of digestion and elimination
• Lowering of immune function
• Release of neurotransmitters, producing heightened awareness
• Increase in heart rate and blood pressure
• Less energy going towards cell production and repair
• Hormonal shifts, such as an increased production of adrenalin and cortisol

If these changes are short term and end after the perceived threat has passed, the body will return to normal. If these changes persist well beyond the danger, the body will start to break down and react in ways that are counterproductive to good health, including:

• Abnormal sleep patterns (too much or too little sleep)
• Eating disorders
• Headaches
• Cardiovascular problems
• Digestive problems
• Muscular aches and pains
• Immune system disorders
• Hormonal disorders
• Skin problems

One of the best strategies for your health is to erase stress. Over the past 20 to 30 years the area of stress management has become of great concern. Stress management and the use of healthy lifestyle choices to relieve it have grown together.

Healthy Lifestyle Choices:

Massage Therapy: Regular massages reduce the production of stress hormones, increases blood and lymph circulation and promotes the elimination of toxins that accumulate in the body. It can reverse the negative cycle of pain in your joints and muscles allowing you to experience a new level of vitality and well-being.

Fitness Training: Fitness Training can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and distract you from daily worries, rebuild and restore your posture, relieve pain, increase flexibility, strengthen and reshape your body.

Health Coaching: Health Coaching provides guidance and support for issues related to health, nutrition and lifestyle. It’s about more than just your diet, it is about creating the quality of life you want by making sustainable changes in your diet, exercise routine, relationships, daily practice and career. It’s about improving your eating habits, achieving weight loss naturally, increasing your energy, shifting behaviors and beliefs that block your success, and increasing your overall vitality and happiness.

Our professionals work together as a team to help you reach your personal goals.

You may think you’re alone, but you’re not. At Charleston Therapeutic Massage and Wellness we are committed to empowering you by offering our healthy lifestyle choices that will effectively meet your needs and goals in a simple and easy process.

Boosting Your Immunity For The Change Of Season

 Lymph draining therapy, practiced throughtout Europe for decades, is a well-documented bodywork method of stimulating the lymph system to activate fluid circulation, detoxify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body’s natural defenses. It is a highly specialized technique using precise, complex hand movements to encourage the draining of lymph fluids.

lymph drainage 

Using slow, gentle stokes with a rhythmic pumping action, the therapist follows the lymph pathways throughout the body to move the flow of lymph and accelerate detoxification. In comparison, normal massage techniques are much too forceful to allow drainage in the tissues and may hinder transport.

 The therapy has been successfully used to alleviate conditions such as swelling (edemas) of many origins and chronic pain, as well as to detoxify and regenerate body tissues. It is also effective for stimulating the immune system to improve chronic infections and inflammation such as sinusitis, acne, chronic fatigue syndrome and allergies. Lymph drainage therapy is also beneficial for pre-surgery to prevent edema and speed the recovery process.

 Almost everyone can benefit from lymph drainage. It is a great treatment to boost energy and immunity especially at the change of seasons. We recommend receiving a lymph drainage treatment every 2 – 3 months for maintenance and more often in times of illness or need.

Call us to find out more about lymph drainage therapy and to schedule your appointment.

Ouch! Pain In The Neck?neck pain

Neck problems have become a part of everyday life due to the overuse of computers, poor posture, improper fitness training, sitting for prolonged periods of time in one position, tight muscles, arthritis, upper spine and disc problems.

Sitting in front of your office computer can weaken important muscles, leading to chronic back pain and other health problems. If you are working on a computer, make sure you take multiple breaks so that you can move your head, do some neck exercises, and change positions. This is really important to maintain neck flexibility. People with neck problems should avoid movements that hyperextend the neck. This can aggravate neck problems that can further cause impingement of the neck arteries that supply blood to the brain.

Make sure your workstation is comfortable. You should have an ergonomic chair that has good back support and neck support. Your viewing distance should be 12 – 28 inches from the computer screen to prevent straining your neck muscles to see what you are typing. The top of your computer screen should be at or slightly below eye level when you are sitting comfortably. For most people the most comfortable neck position is when their normal line of sight is about 15 – 20 degrees below horizontal. The angle of your computer screen should be 10 – 20 degrees. The height of the keyboard should be 23 – 28 inches from the floor surface. Your thighs should be horizontal.

work station 

Also avoid fast or jerky neck movements, sitting with your head too far forward, lying down on the sofa or bed with your head propped up high on the pillow, and head circles.

 Here are some quick exercise suggestions: 

  • Turn head slowly left to right
  • Empire State Building Watch - slowly look up and down
  • Shoulder Blade Squeeze – pull shoulder blades together and hold and repeat
  • Head tilts – tilt head from left to right
  • Shrug shoulders and make circles backwards

For many individuals with cervical strains and other musculoskeletal conditions of the neck, it may be necessary to seek help for relief of neck pain with massage in conjunction with exercise. A massage therapist experienced and specializing in clinical cervical massage, stretching, and exercise is essential for pain relief, rebalance, and strengthening of your body. 

Note: Always follow your physician’s advice.

Strengthen Your Time Management Muscle

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one – Mark Twain

Have you ever wished for a few more hours in the day? Why is it that some people seem to get everything done effortlessly and others feel that time constantly eludes them? The secret to managing your time well isn’t working more hours. It is about prioritizing the important things and learning to use the time you have more efficiently and effectively. The secret is working smarter, not harder.

Some of us, by nature, organize and get tasks out of the way before we relax, while others of us play first and work later. It is important to first recognize which type you are and whether your style is allowing you to have the life you really want. Maybe you are super-organized at work, but burned out because you don’t know how to make time for yourself. Maybe you are naturally a less organized person who knows how to relax, but you are dissatisfied because you aren’t fulfilling your goals and dreams.

 Rather than labeling yourself or beating yourself up, realize that time management is an area of your life that you can strengthen. Like a new muscle, it takes practice and repetition to make it stronger. To help you get started, here are some steps to streamline your days at work and at home. Try the first one or two that jump out at you:

  • Allocate time for planning and organizing.
  • Create to-do lists that are realistic, not intimidating. Use only one to-do list.
  • Under-schedule your time: Leave time for the unexpected and for interruptions. When you estimate how long something will take, add on a third of that time.
  • Schedule your time in a way that reduces interruptions that lower your productivity.
  • Practice the art of intelligent neglect: Eliminate trivial tasks.
  • Prioritize what is most important and do that first.
  • Consider your biological prime time: At what time of day do you work best? Plan to do your most important work at that time.
  • If you say yes to everything that comes your way, learn to say no.
  • Ask for help and delegate.
  • In the evening make your to-do list for the next day, so it will be out of your brain and on a piece of paper. Leave work with a clear head and a clean desk.
  • Acknowledge yourself daily for all that you have accomplished.

 Also take a look at the two biggest hindrances to using time effectively: procrastinating and lacking purpose. We usually procrastinate when a task seems too daunting, too large or too complex, or when we feel we won’t be able to handle it. When you get that “deer in the headlights” feeling, try “chunking”: break the large task into smaller, manageable action steps and start with the first one. We also often drag our heels or use our time inefficiently because we are bored, unengaged and uninspired. The most effective people will tell you that they love what they do and are aligned with a greater purpose. When it comes to managing your time, you may need to ask the larger questions, “Am I doing what I love to do? Am I doing something meaningful to me?”

As you strengthen your new time management muscle, keep your focus on getting organized so that you can live the life you came here for. Instead of being a chore, good time management can be your ticket to more fun, greater satisfaction and a vibrant, exciting life.

Why Should You Care About Pesticides?

The growing concensus amoung scientists is that small doses of presticides and other chemicals can cause lasting damage to human health, especially fetal development and early childhood. Scientist now know enough about the long-term consequences of ingesting these powereful chemicals to advise that we minimize our consumption of pesticides.
The Environmental Working Group research has found that people who eat five fruits and vegetables a day from the Dirty Dozen ™ Plus 2 list consume an average of 10 pesticides a day. Those who eat from the 15 least contaminated conventionally grown fruits and vegetables ingest fewer than 2 pesticides daily.
EWG Shopper’s Guide 2012
 dirty dozen plus 2
The data used to create these lists is based on produce tested as it is typically enten (meaning washed, rinsed or peeled, depending on the type of produce). Rinsing reduces but does not eliminate presticides.  Peeling helps, but valuable nutrients often go down the drain with the skin.  The best approach; eat a varied diet, rinse all produce and buy organic when possible.

Shoulder Pain

People with shoulder dysfunctions and injuries suffer constant pain, interrupted sleep and loss of range of motion. Postural strains often create an imbalance in the shoulder muscles making you prone to injury.  Postural strains can be caused by frequent computer use, driving and carrying a heavy bag. Shoulder tendonitis or shoulder bursitis refer to the condition that causes inflammation around the shoulder joint. This inflammation begins when there is an injury to the structure.  The longer there is inflammation present the worse the pain gets. As time goes on the shoulder will become stiff and more painful.

How To Treat Shoulder/Joint Pain

Shoulder pain relief can encompass several different approaches. Initially you need to address the source of the pain. Is your shoulder pain from tendonitis, bursitis, frozen shoulder, muscle tears, cartilage tears, instability or muscle imbalance?  If you have already been evaluated by your doctor and you are not experiencing the relief you want then you may want to explore therapeutic massage and corrective exercises.

Researchers at Auburn Hospital and Concord Repatriation General Hospital in Sydney, Australia, found that soft-tissue massage improved range of motion, reduced pain and improved function in people with shoulder pain.

A study conducted to investigate the effects of soft tissue massage on range of motion, reported pain, and reported function in patients with shoulder pain. The results of this study showed massage significantly reduced pain and improved range of motion for abduction, flexion and hand-behind back. (Van den Dolder, P.A., & Roberts, D.L. (2003). A trial into the effectiveness of soft tissue massage in the treatment of shoulder pain. )

Corrective exercises, ice and pain relieving lotions can be part of your self-care routine. Rest, ice and pain relieving lotions are some effective methods in helping relieve shoulder pain. Look for a lotion with at least one pain-relieving ingredient, such as Arnica, wintergreen, menthol, or a Chinese herbal blend.  A full posture analysis can determine muscular imbalances and dysfunction. After your imbalance is determined a customized program of corrective exercises can be designed to improve your posture, function and balance.

Preventing Injury

The top three causes for shoulder pain are poor posture, weak muscles and engaging in an intense sport on an occasional basis. Doing so without stretching, corrective posture exercises, warming up before engaging in sports activities and strengthening your muscles can cause strains, sprains and tightness.  

At Charleston Therapeutic Massage and Wellness, we work with clients who are struggling with pain. We help them by significantly relieving pain and inflammation with therapeutic massage, corrective posture and fitness exercises, and healthy lifestyle coaching. Give us a call at 843-723-7005 for more information.

This month we’re highlighting low back pain (LBP) – one of the most common musculoskeletal problems in modern society. Seventy to eighty five percent of the population will experience LBP at some time in their lives.

Back pain can interfere with work, routine daily activities and recreation.  Most acute back pain is mechanical in nature – the result of trauma to the lower back. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and/or range of motion, or an inability to stand straight. 

Occasionally, pain felt in one part of the body may “radiate” from a disorder, misalignment or injury elsewhere in the body. A full postural assessment can help determine if posture imbalance is the cause. The way we use our bodies through physical demand, repetitive motion and even lack of motion can cause our posture to become unbalanced. This deviation from our functional design causes musculoskeletal compensation and pain.

Ice and heat (cold and hot compresses) may help reduce pain and inflammation and allow greater mobility for some individuals. As soon as possible following trauma, apply a cold pack or a cold compress (such as a bag of ice or a bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel) to the tender spot several times a day for up to 20 minutes.  After 2 to 3 days of cold treatment, you should then apply heat (such as a hot pad) for brief periods to relax muscles and increase blood flow.  Warm baths may also help relax muscles.  

Massage therapy has been found to be especially effective for individuals with  low back pain.

back massage

Clinical research has shown that massage therapy has benefits for many serious medical conditions. Massage therapy alleviates pain and aids in the healing process. A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine supports massage therapy  as producing better results for low back pain than other therapies, including acupuncture and spinal modification. 

Massage for low back pain was more likely to work when combined with exercise and education. 

Thirteen randomized trials (1596 participants) assessing various types of massage therapy for low-back pain were included in a review. 

In summary, massage is beneficial for individuals with sub-acute (lasting 4 to 12 weeks) and chronic (lasting longer than 12 weeks) non-specific low-back pain, especially when combined with exercises and education. (Furlan AD, Imamura M, Dryden T, Irvin E. Massage for low-back pain. Cochrane Database of Systemic Reviews 2008, Issue 4. Art. No.:CD001929.DOI:10.1002/14651858.CD001929.pub2).

The best thing you can do for your pain is to talk with us about your specific needs and goals.  Our staff of extensively trained and experienced professionals will assist you to reach your goals in our nurturing stress free environment.

Today there is a focus on living a healthy lifestyle for optimal health and balance. Eating well, relaxing, sleeping, making time for relationships, play and self-expression are the various ingredients that make up the whole of our lives and can easily get out of balance.  Andrew Weil, M.D., world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine defines health in his book, Health and Healing as “wholeness.” He uses the phrase  “dynamic equilibrium” to describe the essence of health – “a dynamic and harmonious equilibrium of all the elements and forces making up and surrounding a human being.”  Equilibrium because there is balance, dynamic because there are changes taking place. When the state of balance is disturbed by forces acting on them, our internal system signals our body to return us to equilibrium. In other words, we don’t feel great every day of our lives. Tune in and listen to your body. The body will naturally tell you what it needs to bring you back into balance.

Each of us has very specific needs for our own health according to age, constitution, gender, size, lifestyle and ancestry. This is called bio-individuality.  Exploring your bio-individuality nutritional requirements and looking at how all areas of your life are connected is the key to finding what food and lifestyle choices best support you. Water, food, physical activity, relationships, career, and spirituality have the power to transform health and balance the body. Look at the food you’re eating, deficits, and behaviors in your life that are underlying causes of your imbalance. Inadequate nutrients, being dissatisfied with relationships, having an inappropriate exercise routine (too much, too little or the wrong type), being bored, stressed, uninspired by a job, or lacking a spiritual practice (meditating, attending religious services, reading inspirational text ,writing, dancing, drawing or being in nature) may cause our body to be out of balance. 

 Let’s take a look at one of the potential causes of imbalance.   

Now that the holidays are over, you may be experiencing  cravings with fatigue, depression, weariness, mood swings, and exhaustion. Cravings are critical signals meant to assist you in understanding what your body needs to bring it back into balance. When you experience a craving, break it down into components by asking yourself, “What’s really going on here?” Are you craving something sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter or astringent? Are you craving entertainment, a hug, movement, nutritious food?

What we eat is a good place to begin understanding our cravings because the effects of our food choices are so powerful. Cravings can definitely be the result of eating too much sugar. According to William Duffy, author of Sugar Blues “sugar is an addictive, destructive drug”. Sugar qualifies as an addictive substance for two reasons: eating even a small amount creates a desire for more, and suddenly quitting causes withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, mood swings, cravings and fatigue. We each have a specific relationship with sugar. We may feel happy and energetic for a while. But a short time later our mood suddenly changes and we find ourselves arguing with a friend or loved one. Overconsumption of refined sweets causes the body to lose the ability  to maintain a steady blood sugar level. This causes a rapid rise in the glucose levels in the body – a sugar rush. This sugar rush is followed by a crash creating imbalance in our body. Finding healthy alternatives to processed sugar can dramatically reduce sweet cravings .  You can naturally add more sweet flavor to your diet by adding fruits  and sweet vegetables like corn, carrots, onions, beets, winter squash, sweet potatoes and yams. 

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt! – Lucy Van Pelt from Peanuts Comic by Charles M. Schultz. Understanding what causes those crazy, uncontrollable cravings and knowing that you can reduce them naturally will empower you to bring your body back into balance.


Basic Ingredients for a Balanced Life:           

Drink Pure Water

Water is crucial to our survival. You need water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to your organs and tissues. Water also transports oxygen to your cells, removes waste, and protects your joints and organs. A large majority of the American population is dehydrated.  Dehydration can manifest as a mild hunger. When you get a craving drink a full glass of water. Excess water can also cause cravings. Be careful your water intake is well balanced. 

 Eat Real Food

Real whole food is minimally processed food that contain a virtual pharmacy of nutrients, phytochemicals, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and healthful fats. Whole food can keep you alive and thriving. Going organic whenever possible for fruits and vegetables is best because they don’t carry heavy amounts of pesticides. This makes sense especially for children and pregnant women.  Shop at a farmer’s market or a local farm and buy your food there. When these options are not available there are plenty of healthy foods in your local supermarket.  The easiest tip to remember when shopping for healthy food at the supermarket is to focus primarily on the outer perimeter. 

When you are making a food choice, ask yourself, is this food processed in any way? Check the food label for ingredients. Labels will list additives, ingredients and nutrition information.  Look at the first 5 ingredients. None of them should be a sugar, a salt, a non-100 % whole grain carbohydrate, or a partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. If any of these are on the list, DON’T BUY IT.  Healthy food doesn’t have to cost more. It’s the junk food, fast food, processed food and convenience food that ring up your grocery bill. If you reduce sugar, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol your food expense will be less and you will naturally cleanse your body.


Practice Home Cooking

Restaurant food generally has more salt, more unhealthy fat and more calories than home cooked meals. Healthy home cooked food doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare. Keep it simple. You don’t have to spend hours cooking complex meals. Good quality, fresh food is easy to prepare and enjoy once you learn how. Learn the art of simple meal planning. It’s not difficult, but it takes practice. With practice and patience in a short time you will be effortlessly cooking and nourishing yourself and others. Here’s a few resources to explore: Greens, Glorious Greens by Johnna Albi and Catherine Walthers,  150 Healthiest Foods on Earth by Johnny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., The Self-Healing Cookbook: Whole Foods To Balance Body, Mind and Moods by Kristina Turner,  Refined to Real Foods: Moving Your Family Toward Healthier, Wholesome Eating by Allison Anneser with Sara Thyr, N.D., Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.

 Get Physically Active

Regular physical activity strengthens muscles, improves heart and lung function, reduces the risk of major diseases, stimulates the growth of new brain cells, and can add years to your life. The range of health bonuses now attributed to regular exercise are numerous.  Be experimental and find the type of exercise  you enjoy.  It’s good to find a type of exercise you can do every day without altering your schedule. If you’re a beginner start with 10 minutes a day and increase gradually to build up your endurance. Don’t give up!

More Sleep, Rest and Relaxation

When you are tired or stressed, your body will crave energy. These cravings are often a result of being sleep deprived. When people get less than 6 – 7 hours of sleep each night, their risk for developing diseases begin to increase. During times of chronic stress, the body moves to a state of physiological arousal, including increased heart rate and blood pressure, slowed digestive functioning, decreased blood flow to the extremities, increased release of hormones like adrenalin and cortisol and other responses preparing the body to fight or run. One of the pioneers of the relaxation response, the counterpart of the fight-or-flight response, Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard University wrote in his book, The Relaxation Revolution, “Any condition that is caused or exacerbated by stress can be helped by a well-designed mind-body approach.  Furthermore, because all health conditions have some stress component, it is no overstatement  to say that virtually every single health problem and disease can be improved by mind-body approach.”  Relaxation and meditation have been proven in a wealth of studies to promote health. Take time for yourself. Find activities that restore your energy, such as a walk, massage, bath, movie, or whatever you enjoy and schedule a date with yourself to do these things.

 In Touch With Your Spirituality

We are spiritual beings in a physical world. Develop and deepen your spiritual practice, whatever that might be. Find ways to get in touch with your spiritual side, be it meditating, attending religious services, reading inspirational text, writing, dancing, drawing, or being in nature.

 Professional Support Can Guide You To Achieve Optimal Health

All the various ingredients  that make up the whole of our lives can easily get out of balance. Studies show that the caring support of others can be a powerful tool to establish optimal health.  A professional can support, guide, motivate and provide customized resources for you to set and accomplish achievable health and lifestyle goals.

The body is always trying to maintain balance. Balance doesn’t just happen. It takes practice. You have the ability to change habits, behaviors, and patterns. It’s about choices, priorities, perspective, and letting go. You can balance your life with healthy living.
