Basic Clinical Massage Therapy: Integrating Anatomy and Treatment is primarily a textbook for advanced massage therapy students who have already acquired the basic skills of Swedish massage and are now pursuing additional training in clinical massage therapy.

In this book, the author define “clinical massage therapy” as the use of manual manipulation of the soft tissues to relieve specific complaints of pain and dysfunction. As its title implies, this book integrates detailed anatomical information with basic clinical massage therapy techniques. By embedding illustrations of internal structures into photographs of live models, it shows exactly what muscle is being worked on, where it is, where it is attached, how it can be accessed manually, what kinds of problems it can cause, and one or more basic techniques for effectively treating it. The student can clearly see the involved structures in relation to surrounding structures, surface landmarks, and the therapist’s hands. Therefore, this book offers a truly innovative visual and tactile understanding of anatomical spatial relationships integrated with the learning of treatment techniques, which has not been possible with traditional approaches.

Thailand shatters world mass-massage record

Six hundred and forty one pairs of Thai masseuses have broken the Guiness World Record for the most people being massaged at once. Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra marked the start of the record attempt, which was part of the opening of Thailand’s Medical Expo 2012. Traditional Thai massages stretch and pressure muscles to relax and energise the body. “Tourists who come to Thailand and go back to their country, they usually compliment and talk about Thai traditional massage,” said one record-breaking participant, 58-year-old Prawet Moonklang. The previous record had been held by 263 Australian couples in 2010. (source)

Thailand on 30th August set a world record when 641 masseurs simultaneously practised holistic head-to-toe Thai massage on 641 people for 12 minutes. The move is aimed at promoting Thai massage and luring foreign tourists with the promise of traditional medical services. Guinness World Records certified the record, which was set during an event held as part of the Thailand Medical Hub Expo 2012 at Nonthaburi province’s Impact Muang Thong Thani.

The previous record was set in Australia in 2010, when 263 masseurs kneaded flesh simultaneously for five minutes. “I was happy that I was able to do it,” 87-year-old female masseur Pornpimol Panyawut said after participating in the record-setting massage. Pornpimol has practised Thai massage in the southern province of Chumpon for 57 years. Her father taught her the skill when she was young.

“Thai massage is our heritage and we have to pass it on to other generations,” she said. Thai spa and massage services are world renowned and generate Bt12 billion in revenue per year. There are about 1,436 spas certified by the Public Health Ministry, which will be classified into three internationally recognised levels: platinum, gold and silver. Now there are certified up to 33 international spas and there are certified 400 hours healthy massage up to 50,000 masseurs. (source)

Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being.[1][2] The word comes from the French massage “friction of kneading”, or from Arabic massa meaning “to touch, feel or handle” or from Latin massa meaning “mass, dough”.[3][4] In distinction the ancient Greek word for massage was anatripsis,[5] and the Latin was frictio.

Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, and feet. There are over eighty different recognized massage modalities.[6] The most cited reasons for introducing massage as therapy have been client demand and perceived clinical effectiveness.[7]
