Get into the ZONE…the PARASYMPATHETIC Zone
 
 

 

My style of Deep Tissue Massage releases the body’s natural painkillers whereby it stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures into the brain and nervous system. Once that happens (your now in a parasympathetic state  (“rest and digest”) I then go to work on your sore or injured areas to break up the damaged fibrous adhesion’s which are spread randomly though out a muscle’s tissue thus increasing blood flow, oxygen, strength, flexibility and tissue re-building. I use a variety of modalities to accomplish this: Swedish: This is your basic massage modality which incorporates long gentle strokes to increase blood flow to and from the muscles. Myofascial Release: This technique involves slower and deeper pressure into the muscle tissue to assist in breaking up adhesions and scar tissue in the muscle. Neuromuscular Release, NMT, Neuromuscular Re-Education, Body Pattern Synchronization (Call it what you want… everybody gives it their own name but we are all trying to do the same thing): This technique is “point-specific” work which targets muscle adhesion’s, muscle spindles in the belly of the muscle, trigger points that restrict normal flow of the nervous system to the muscles. Once the adhesion’s are broken up the client usually experiences an increase in range of motion, strength, and speed. ActiveRange of Motion:This technique is a stretching modality which takes the client through his or her normal range of motion to assist motor control and aids in the reduction of scar tissue and muscle adhesions. Active Isolated Stretching: This technique involves stretching which incorporates a process called reciprocal inhibition  (RI) to stretch the muscle as well as increase kinesthetic awareness of the body.

The key to “My STYLE” is an aggressive approach combined with sustained pressure ( increasing Ischemic blood supply) over time and a spiritual component.

What does Riktr mean?

Derived from “Off the Richter Scale” meaning that something is excellent, very good, over the top, on the edge, awesome, fantastic or amazing.

Nice Quotes:

The strongest of all warriors are these two: Time and Patience.– Leo Tolstoi Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.- Napolean Hill If only we arrange our life according to that principle which counsels us that we must always hold to the difficult, then that which now still seems to us the most alien will become what we most trust and find most faithful. – Rilke (Rilke on love an other difficulties-translations and considerations of Rainer Maria Rilke by John J. L. Mood) I tell you that I have a long way to go before I am –where one begins… – Rilke Resolve to be always beginning—to be a beginner. -Rilke ” The harder you work, the luckier you get.” – Gary Player, golfer “Nothing happens until something moves.” Albert Einstein As Dr. Rolf said, “Put the tissue where it should be and then ask for movement.” Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion. – Buddha Once you label me you negate me.  -Søren Kierkegaard I must find a truth that is true for me. Søren Kierkegaard   Click here for: other nice quotes

FYI: Where does Riktr’s healing energy come from: These pictures say it all.

God’s Universal Energy or Chi, Ki, Ka, Xi, Netter, Ihund, Life Force, Prana, Holy Spirit, Ruhuh, Biomagnetic Energy or Innate Intelligence starts here. Click these links for more on Universal Energy.

The Earth is part of  universal energy.

Check out this video called “Healing the Hearts of Humanity”   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aKcvgTvIMQ&feature=related

The earth captures Universal magnetic energy in many different ways and stores it.

Check out this video called “The Awakening of The Cosmic Heart (The Core Rainbow)”   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es-YbHlBKtU&NR=1

Magnetic universal energy is stored in the earth’s core and then is released.

The earth unleashes it’s energy in different ways.

Keeping your third eye open lets all the magnetic energy flow in and out of your body.

Human beings collect, store and release the magnetic energy.

Human beings collect, store and release magnetic energy some more than others.

What is rheumatoid arthritis ?

rheu·ma·toid ar·thri·tis
noun
noun: rheumatoid arthritis
  1. a chronic progressive disease causing inflammation in the joints and resulting in painful deformity and immobility, especially in the fingers, wrists, feet, and ankles.

    What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system – which normally protects its health by attacking foreign substances like bacteria and viruses – mistakenly attacks the joints. This creates inflammation that causes the tissue that lines the inside of joints (the synovium) to thicken, resulting in swelling and pain in and around the joints. The synovium makes a fluid that lubricates joints and helps them move smoothly.

    If inflammation goes unchecked, it can damage cartilage, the elastic tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint, as well as the bones themselves. Over time, there is loss of cartilage, and the joint spacing between bones can become smaller. Joints can become loose, unstable, painful and lose their mobility. Joint deformity also can occur. Joint damage cannot be reversed, and because it can occur early, doctors recommend early diagnosis and aggressive treatment to control RA.

    Rheumatoid arthritis most commonly affects the joints of the hands, feet, wrists, elbows, knees and ankles. The joint effect is usually symmetrical. That means if one knee or hand if affected, usually the other one is, too. Because RA also can affect body systems, such as the cardiovascular or respiratory systems, it is called a systemic disease. Systemic means “entire body.”

    Who’s Affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis?

    About 1.5 million people in the United States have rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Nearly three times as many women have the disease as men. In women, RA most commonly begins between ages 30 and 60. In men, it often occurs later in life. Having a family member with RA increases the odds of having RA; however, the majority of people with RA have no family history of the disease.

What is EMDR?

For Clinicians:

 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories (Shapiro, 1989a, 1989b). Shapiro’s (2001) Adaptive Information Processing model posits that EMDR facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and other adverse life experience to bring these to an adaptive resolution. After successful treatment with EMDR, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced. During EMDR therapy the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus. Therapist directed lateral eye movements are the most commonly used external stimulus but a variety of other stimuli including hand-tapping and audio stimulation are often used (Shapiro, 1991). Shapiro (1995, 2001) hypothesizes that EMDR facilitates the accessing of the traumatic memory network, so that information processing is enhanced, with new associations forged between the traumatic memory and more adaptive memories or information. These new associations are thought to result in complete information processing, new learning, elimination of emotional distress, and development of cognitive insights. EMDR therapy uses a three pronged protocol: (1) the past events that have laid the groundwork for dysfunction are processed, forging new associative links with adaptive information; (2) the current circumstances that elicit distress are targeted, and internal and external triggers are desensitized; (3) imaginal templates of future events are incorporated, to assist the client in acquiring the skills needed for adaptive functioning.

For Laypeople:

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Twenty positive controlled outcome studies have been done on EMDR.  Some of the studies show that 84%-90% of single-trauma victims no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only three 90-minute sessions.  Another study, funded by the HMO Kaiser Permanente, found that 100% of the single-trauma victims and 77% of multiple trauma victims no longer were diagnosed with PTSD after only six 50-minute sessions. In another study, 77% of combat veterans were free of PTSD in 12 sessions. There has been so much research on EMDR that it is now recognized as an effective form of treatment for trauma and other disturbing experiences by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense. Given the worldwide recognition as an effective treatment of trauma, you can easily see how EMDR would be effective in treating the “everyday” memories that are the reason people have low self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, and all the myriad problems that bring them in for therapy. Over 100,000 clinicians throughout the world use the therapy.  Millions of people have been treated successfully over the past 25 years.

EMDR therapy is an eight-phase treatment.  Eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation) are used during one part of the session.  After the clinician has determined which memory to target first, he asks the client to hold different aspects of that event or thought in mind and to use his eyes to track the therapist’s hand as it moves back and forth across the client’s field of vision.  As this happens, for reasons believed by a Harvard researcher to be connected with the biological mechanisms involved in Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, internal associations arise and the clients begin to process the memory and disturbing feelings. In successful EMDR therapy, the meaning of painful events is transformed on an emotional level.  For instance, a rape victim shifts from feeling horror and self-disgust to holding the firm belief that, “I survived it and I am strong.”  Unlike talk therapy, the insights clients gain in EMDR result not so much from clinician interpretation, but from the client’s own accelerated intellectual and emotional processes.  The net effect is that clients conclude EMDR therapy feeling empowered by the very experiences that once debased them Their wounds have not just closed, they have transformed. As a natural outcome of the EMDR therapeutic process, the clients’ thoughts, feelings and behavior are all robust indicators of emotional health and resolution—all without speaking in detail or doing homework used in other therapies.

Treatment Description:

EMDR therapy combines different elements to maximize treatment effects.  A full description of the theory, sequence of treatment, and research on protocols and active mechanisms can be found in F. Shapiro (2001) Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing:  Basic principles, protocols and procedures (2nd edition) New York: Guilford Press.

EMDR involves attention to three time periods:  the past, present, and future.  Focus is given to past disturbing memories and related events.  Also, it is given to current situations that cause distress, and to developing the skills and attitudes needed for positive future actions.  With EMDR therapy, these items are addressed using an eight-phase treatment approach.

Phase 1:  The first phase is a history-taking session(s).  The therapist assesses the client’s readiness and develops a treatment plan.  Client and therapist identify possible targets for EMDR processing.  These include distressing memories and current situations that cause emotional distress.  Other targets may include related incidents in the past.  Emphasis is placed on the development of specific skills and behaviors that will be needed by the client in future situations.

Initial EMDR processing may be directed to childhood events rather than to adult onset stressors or the identified critical incident if the client had a problematic childhood.  Clients generally gain insight on their situations, the emotional distress resolves and they start to change their behaviors.  The length of treatment depends upon the number of traumas and the age of PTSD onset.  Generally, those with single event adult onset trauma can be successfully treated in under 5 hours.  Multiple trauma victims may require a longer treatment time.

Phase 2:  During the second phase of treatment, the therapist ensures that the client has several different ways of handling emotional distress.  The therapist may teach the client a variety of imagery and stress reduction techniques the client can use during and between sessions. A goal of EMDR is to produce rapid and effective change while the client maintains equilibrium during and between sessions.

Phases 3-6:  In phases three to six, a target is identified and processed using EMDR procedures.  These involve the client identifying three things:
1.  The vivid visual image related to the memory
2.  A negative belief about self
3.  Related emotions and body sensations.

In addition, the client identifies a positive belief.  The therapist helps the client rate the positive belief as well as the intensity of the negative emotions.  After this, the client is instructed to focus on the image, negative thought, and body sensations while simultaneously engaging in EMDR processing using sets of bilateral stimulation.  These sets may include eye movements, taps, or tones.  The type and length of these sets is different for each client.  At this point, the EMDR client is instructed to just notice whatever spontaneouly happens.

After each set of stimulation, the clinician instructs the client to let his/her mind go blank and to notice whatever thought, feeling, image, memory, or sensation comes to mind.  Depending upon the client’s report, the clinician will choose the next focus of attention.  These repeated sets with directed focused attention occur numerous times throughout the session.  If the client becomes distressed or has difficulty in progressing, the therapist follows established procedures to help the client get back on track.

When the client reports no distress related to the targeted memory, (s)he is asked to think of the preferred positive belief that was identified at the beginning of the session.  At this time, the client may adjust the positive belief if necessary, and then focus on it during the next set of distressing events.

Phase 7:  In phase seven, closure, the therapist asks the client to keep a log during the week.  The log should document any related material that may arise.  It serves to remind the client of the self-calming activities that were mastered in phase two.

Phase 8:  The next session begins with phase eight.  Phase eight consists of examining the progress made thus far.  The EMDR treatment processes all related historical events, current incidents that elicit distress, and future events that will require different responses.

AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM HEALTH

Great article by Lawrence Wilson, MD

Revised © Revised June 2008, The Center For Development

 

The human nervous system has two major divisions, the voluntary and the autonomic systems.  The voluntary system is concerned mainly with movement and sensation.  It consists of motor and sensory nerves, among many others.

The autonomic system mainly controls functions over which we have less conscious control.  These include the digestion of food, the blood pressure and the heart rate.  Its nerves leave the spine and connect to all the major organs and glands, either inhibiting or stimulating their activity.

 

DIVISIONS OF THE AUTONOMIC SYSTEM

 

The autonomic system has two branches.  These are called the sympathetic and the parasympathetic branches.

 

* The sympathetic branch activates the glands and organs that defend the body against attack.  It is called the fight-or-flight system.  Its nerves direct more blood to the muscles and the brain.  The heart rate and blood pressure increase, while it decreases the blood flow to the digestive and eliminative organs.

It also activates the thyroid and adrenal glands to provide extra energy for fighting or running away.  Nervousness, stress or feelings of panic are what one feels when in a sympathetic state of readiness.

        The sympathetic system is catabolic, which means it tears down the body.  Energy is used to prepare for defense, rather than for nourishment or for elimination of wastes.  An excellent analogy is to imagine placing all of the nation’s resources in its military defense.  While helpful in an emergency, if continued too long, the nation becomes much poorer for lack of productive commercial activity. The feeling of an ‘adrenalin rush’ is a product of the sympathetic system.  It may feel good at first, but is always followed by a feeling of fatigue, as this system uses up energy and depletes the body.

 

*    The parasympathetic system of nerves is concerned with nourishing, healing and regeneration of the body.  It is anabolic, or concerned with rebuilding the body.  Its nerves stimulate digestion, and the immune and eliminative organs.  These organs include the liver, pancreas, stomach and intestines.  The parasympathetic nervous system, when activated by rest, relaxation and happy thoughts, is essential for balanced living and for all healing.  Moving yourself into a healthy parasympathetic state, and staying there as much of the time as possible, helps heal all health conditions, both physical and emotional ones as well.

The feeling often associated with the parasympathetic state can be one of lethargy or fatigue, as you are so relaxed.  Do not, however, believe this is unhealthy.  Rather, it indicates a state of repair and rebuilding in progress.

 

The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are antagonistic.  Either one or the other is activated most all of the time.  The sympathetic system, however, always takes precedence, because it is concerned with one’s survival.

To promote balance and healing, the goal is to keep the sympathetic system turned off as much as possible.  This allows the maximum healing to occur.  Simple ways to do this are to rest, relax and think happy thoughts.  As soon as you think fearful or angry thoughts, or become too physically active, the body shifts into a sympathetic stance.

The sympathetic nervous system may be roughly likened to the gas pedal of a car.  The parasympathetic is more like the brake.  Unlike a car, however,  when the ‘brake’ is applied to the body, it begins to heal itself.

 

AUTONOMIC IMBALANCES

 

Relatively few people today have a strong and balanced autonomic system.  Most people favor the sympathetic branch.  Learning which metabolic type you are can be very helpful for designing diets and nutritional supplementation to balance the body.

 

       The Balanced Individual.  When the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems are working as they should, the tendency is to rest often and easily.  One can, however, perform at “top speed” with equal ease. When challenged by stress, the balanced person is able to respond with vigor and fortitude.

The parasympathetic system reduces the activity of the brain, the muscles, and the adrenal and thyroid glands.  When no situation is pressing, the balanced person can comfortably choose to rest and can sleep deeply.

 

The Sympathetic Metabolic Type.  Some people’s bodies remain in a more sympathetic state most of the time.  These people tend to be more outgoing, aggressive, belligerent at times, and often sweat more, have higher blood sugar and blood pressure levels and have more frequent bowel movements.  They are more prone to anxiety, irritability and nervousness in general.  They have more active or overactive thyroid and adrenal glands, as these are activated by the sympathetic nervous system.
We can roughly identify the state of the nervous system with a properly performed hair tissue mineral analysis.  The proper testing procedures absolutely requires that the hair must not be washed at the laboratory.  Only two labs in America follow this protocol.

A sympathetic state of the autonomic nervous system correlates most closely with a condition called fast oxidation  on the hair mineral test.  It is present when the calcium/potassium ratio is less than 4:1 and the sodium/magnesium ratio is greater than 4.17:1.

 

The Parasympathetic Metabolic Type.  These individuals tend to be more fatigued and prone to depression, low blood sugar, metal toxicity and many other conditions.  Their adrenal and thyroid glands tend to be underactive.
On a properly performed hair mineral analysis this condition is generally associated with slow oxidation.  This occurs when the hair calcium/potassium ratio is greater than about 4:1 and the hair sodium/magnesium ratio is less than 4.17:1.

 

Mixed Symptom Pictures. It is important to note that one can have fast oxidizer mineral ratios and yet not be what is called a true fast oxidizer.  Often, the fast oxidation is a temporary state, induced by the presence of toxic metals or other stressors.  When these are eliminated, the person’s metabolic type switches to slow oxidation or a parasympathetic state.
Thus, many people show a mixture of sympathetic and parasympathetic characteristics that can present a confusing symptom picture.  The great value of the hair mineral analysis is that it can guide a practitioner in correcting layers of autonomic nervous system imbalances.

 

SYMPATHETIC DOMINANCE

 

       In addition to the sympathetic and parasympathetic body types, many people who are parasympathetic types overuse their sympathetic nervous system.  This is a mental or lifestyle tendency more than anything else.  The sympathetic system is exhausted, but they continue to use it or stimulate it anyway.

As a result, they do not spend enough time in a parasympathetic state to fully rebuild their bodies.  Their bodies eventually become nutritionally depleted and they become quite literally ‘burned out’.

Today, even children are often burned out, in this sense, due to stress, poor diets and nutritional deficiencies they are born with.

Sympathetic dominance is revealed on a hair mineral analysis as a slow oxidation rate, along with a hair potassium level less than about 5 mg%.  A secondary indicator is a sodium/potassium ratio is greater than about 4:1.

 

Causes of Sympathetic Dominance.  The causes for sympathetic dominance are several.  As stated above, it is mainly a lifestyle pattern.  Some people take on too much work.  Others analyze too much or worry excessively.

Others live in fear, anger or resentment too much of the time.  A person in this condition may also talk, think, eat or work at a rapid pace, faster than the optimum for that person. They become toxic and nutritionally depleted, which makes the condition much worse.

 

A Vicious Cycle Often Occurs.  A person can become so used to being tired that if, by chance, they get a lot of rest one day, they use up their energy the next day, instead of continuing to rest.  Such people do not allow their bodies to use the energy they accumulated for healing and rebuilding.  As a result, they tend to stay depleted and out of balance.

The early signs of staying in a sympathetic dominant state too much of the time are fatigue or even feelings of exhaustion.  As the condition progresses, one may feel depressed, apathetic or moody.  Other physical symptoms include aches and pains, weakness, disturbed digestion or insomnia.  If this continues, the stage is set for more serious illness.

 

PARASYMPATHETIC DOMINANCE

 

This is a much less important and less common situation.  It can be of two types, healthy and unhealthy.  Healthy parasympathetic dominance occurs very rarely.  It occurs only in the spiritually developed people.  They live most of their lives in the present moment.  They are almost always relaxed, do not react to stress, and live in a state of peace and contentment.  Their hair mineral analyses would tend to show fairly balanced oxidation rates.

 

Unhealthy Parasympathetic Dominance.  Today, fearful thinking, electromagnetic pollution, toxic metals and toxic chemicals in the food, air and water disturb the functioning of the autonomic system.

The end stage of sympathetic dominance is that one essentially gives up hope of fighting back at all.  These people are essentially in a state of give-up or hopelessness about their situation or health condition.

The hair analyses of these individuals may reveal a low ratio of sodium to potassium, usually less than 1:1.  They may also slip into another pattern called four low electrolytes.  In this pattern, the hair calcium level is less than 40 mg%, magnesium is less than 6 mg%, sodium is less than 25 mg% and potassium is less than 10 mg%.

The causes of the healthy and unhealthy parasympathetic states are quite opposite. Healthy parasympathetic dominance is due to what may be called spiritual development.  This is the discipline to think and live differently.  One reduces stress and strain on the body by resting and nourishing it so that it can rebuild.  Unhealthy parasympathetic dominance is just a late stage of excessive sympathetic activity due to the vicious cycle spoken of in the section above.

Symptoms of the unhealthy state often include feeling depressed and cynical.  Some are paralyzed by their fear or anger about their situation.  This, coupled with nutritional imbalances, sets the stage for serious illness.

 

KEEPING YOUR AUTONOMIC SYSTEM HEALTHY

 

       There is much you can do to keep your autonomic system functioning well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplemental nutrients that calm the sympathetic system are calcium, magnesium, and zinc in particular.  Most everyone should take these supplements today, as their dietary intake is often low.  B-complex vitamins are also most important, and are primarily obtained from nutritional yeast, meats and eggs.  High doses, however, are rarely needed.  Other calming nutrients are GABA, L-taurine and L-carnitine.  Herbs that calm the nervous system are valerian, passionflower, skullcap and hops, among others.

 

         Electromagnetic stress is also very real, although it cannot be seen.  Reduce your use of computers if possible, and do not keep televisions, computers and other electrical devices on when not in use.  Be sure to turn them all off when you sleep, and keep even clocks and radios away from your head in the location where you sleep.  Activities like city driving and using cell phones are also stress-producing, even if you are not aware of it at the time.  A simple lifestyle is much preferred.

 

 

CONCLUSION

 

The health of the autonomic nervous system is a important key to healing that is often overlooked.  Most people today have some degree of sympathetic nervous exhaustion.  It is, in fact, a major cause of  disease that should receive more attention.  On a brighter note, nervous exhaustion can also cause a person to begin searching for answers deep inside.  This can lead to changing your lifestyle and eating habits, and developing your inner potential. As more people become willing to change their thought patterns and lifestyles, they will experience a state of contentment and bliss that comes with having a balanced autonomic system.

 

The Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems

 

Sympathetic System Parasympathetic System
Function To defend the body against attack Healing, regeneration and nourishing the body
Overall Effect Catabolic (breaks down the body) Anabolic (builds up the body)
Organs and Glands It Activates The brain, muscles, the insulin pancreas, and the thyroid and adrenal glands The liver, kidneys, enzyme pancreas, spleen, stomach, small intestines and colon
Hormones and Substances It Increases Insulin, cortisol and the thyroid hormones Parathyroid hormone, pancreatic enzymes, bile and other digestive enzymes
Body Functions It Activates Raises blood pressure and blood sugar, and increases heat production Activates digestion, elimination and the immune system
Psychological Qualities Fear, guilt, sadness, anger, willfulness, and aggressiveness. Calmness, contentment and relaxation
Factors That Activate This System Stress, fears, anger, worry, excessive thinking and too much exercise Rest, sleep, meditation, relaxation therapies and feelings of being loved

Deep Friction Massage Therapy for Tendonitis

A guide to a simple self-massage technique sometimes helpful in treating common tendonitis injuries like tennis elbow or Achilles tendonitis


Another great article by Paul Ingraham

If you have tendonitis, or a closely related problem, you may be able to accelerate healing with a self-massage technique called “frictioning” or “deep friction massage.”1 The technique may be appropriate to use in cases of:

Friction massage “scrubs” the fibres of the tendon, theoretically aiding recovery, and it doesn’t really have to be particularly “deep” (intense). If it works, the mechanism is probably just mild stimulation of natural tissue repair mechanisms. Friction massage is well worth trying, because it’s quite safe, basically free to experiment with, and makes a fair bit of sense even though it’s far from scientifically proven.2

 

After many months of persistent discomfort and limited range of movement, and after my third cortisone shot for thumb tendinitis and still no relief, I went searching and found your article about friction massage. I began the friction massage, and now, three days later, the discomfort is almost entirely gone! I’ll continue with this for a while and see if I can eliminate it altogether. In the meantime, I shall once again pick up my violin, and play a tune of thanks for you!

Eloise Brandt, violinist

How to do friction massage

Friction massage is distinctive — it’s has quite a different goal and feel than the more typical squeezing and steam-rolling of muscles, as you might do with some tennis ball massage. But the action of friction massage is simple and well-suited to self-treatment, as long as you can reach the problem (and most tendonitis is reachable). Just rub gently back and forth over the inflamed tendon at the point of greatest tenderness. Your strokes should be perpendicular to the fibres of the tendon — like strumming a guitar string.

Use gentle to moderate pressure with the pads of your fingers or a thumb. Strong pressure is not required or wise, particularly for self-treatment. I’ll explain more about intensity as we go.

Even gentle friction massage will cause discomfort — you are rubbing an active case of tendonitis, after all! The pain should be clear and a bit burning or sharp — however, the discomfort should be easily bearable.

If the frictioning is painless, or the pain is dull, you are probably in the wrong place, or you don’t have tendonitis. If it is too painful, either you are pressing too hard, or the tendonitis is simply too serious to easily treat in this fashion.

The discomfort will subside significantly after one or two minutes. If it doesn’t, stop the treatment and try again later. If the tenderness does subside, increase the intensity until it returns. Wait for it to subside again. And increase it a third time, and wait a third time for the tenderness to ease. Like this:

  1. Friction for 1–2 minutes until sensitivity subsides.
  2. Increase intensity slightly. Friction for 1–2 minutes until sensitivity subsides.
  3. Increase intensity slightly. Friction for 1–2 minutes until sensitivity subsides.

Finish by icing the massage site, ideally with bare ice (for safety, ice only for a maximum of about two minutes, or until the spot is numb, whichever comes first). For more information about therapeutic icing and ice massage, see Icing for Injuries, Tendinitis, and Inflammation.

The complete treatment should take about 3-6 minutes, and should be done at least once per day, and a maximum of three times per day. If it’s going to work, you should feel immediate improvement in symptoms following each treatment. It may not work for you! This is no miracle cure. It is worth trying, but it fails in many cases for all kinds of reasons.

Friction massage treatments should be wrapped up by cooling the area down with an application of raw ice.

 

How friction massage works — if it works

Friction massage is basically a highly specific way to “use it or lose it.”

One of the basic principles of healing is that tissue must not be disturbed while healing, and this is particularly true of tendonitis, where stress has already exceeded the capacity of the body to adapt. And yet some stimulation is still a vital component of tissue health and healing, and it’s important to avoid tissue stagnancy. A sick tendon needs at least some moderate stimulation in order to move tissue fluids and to induce connective tissue repair.

In the case of tendonitis, excessive pulling on the tendon is precisely what caused the problem in the first place. If we “stimulate” the tendon with more pulling — more normal activity — this simply constitutes continued irritation to tissue that has already told us it “canna take it any more, cap’n!”

Thus, the friction massage technique provides a method of stimulating the tissue in a new and different way. In theory.

Provocative?

You could also describe frictioning as a form of provocation therapy, and certainly some professionals perform it that way.

There are two “laws” of tissue adaptation, one each for hard and soft tissue: Wolff’s law covers bone, but Davis’ law for soft tissue — muscles, tendons, and ligaments, fascia — is relatively obscure and imprecise. Many treatments are based on the idea of forcing adaptation or “toughening up” tissues. It has always been a reasonable idea, but what’s the “right” amount and kind of stress? Results vary widely. More provocative provocation therapies include the injecting of an actual irritant (prolotherapy), or scraping with edged massage tools (Graston Technique). See Tissue Provocation Therapies.

Friction massage can certainly be delivered with the more dramatic intent of affecting the structure of the tendon, regardless of how painful the treatment is. While it is possible that this could work, it’s obviously riskier, and I don’t recommend it — and the next section offers a particularly interesting reason.

Chronic tendonitis pain and neurology

The reductions in pain that occur at the time of applying the technique are easy enough to explain with “simple” neurology: almost anything that hurts will hurt less as you rub it and adapt to the stimulus. However, those pain-killing effects are also quite temporary. There is a way that neurology might actually account for a much more profound and lasting healing effect: by tinkering with sensitivity.

Chronic pain tends to be self-perpetuating. That is, pain can actually make you more sensitive to pain. In a lot of chronic pain cases, the problem is no longer in the tissue, but in nerves that have become oversensitive.45

Friction massage may interrupt this vicious cycle, by systematically “teaching” the nervous system to be less concerned about stimuli of the irritated tendon. Virtually any stimulation has the potential to do this, but the standard protocol for friction massage might just be particularly good: precisely manageable doses of sensation, repeated over and over again.

(And excessively painful doses of sensation might very well just make things worse! This is why I don’t recommend that “deep” friction massage should be particularly deep. Stick to the Goldilocks zone and you’ve got a chance of working on the problem in two different ways.)

It’s only another theory, but quite a nice one. If true, virtually any stimulation might do the trick — all that would matter is repeated doses of mild to moderate intensity.

Is friction massage based on evidence?

Unfortunately, no — there is almost no persuasive scientific research about friction massage, just a few slightly encouraging scraps.6 The absence of evidence is cause for concern — surely if the technique worked well it could have been proven by now? — but mostly it’s just a lack of research. The technique remains mostly based only on interesting and reasonable speculation about biology. It simply “seems like a good idea” to some smart people. Regarding the conventional rationale, Hertling and Kessler write:

Although highly conjectural, the effects of friction massage are based on sound physiologic and pathologic concepts …. Until there is more concrete evidence of the value of friction massage, its use must be justified on the [basis of clinical evidence] combined with ‘educated empiricism.’

And that remains the case today, despite the important “paradigm shift away from an active inflammatory model since the popularization of the deep friction massage technique by Cyriax” (Joseph et al).

The neurological perspective is my own take on it, which I’ve never seen anywhere else (but it is inspired by pioneers in pain research like Dr. Lorimer Moseley).

I often saw good results from the application of friction massage when I worked as a massage therapist, but that doesn’t really mean all that much. Many patients respond well to virtually any treatment — because virtually any kind of stimulation seems to have the potential to “reboot” a chronically painful situation in the body. In general, I prefer not to take credit for most of my “success stories.”

Are there any risks to friction massage?

Yes … but only if you are a bit reckless with it.

If you ignore excessive pain, you might accidentally attempt to friction massage something that isn’t tendonitis, and perhaps something that’s more vulnerable than tendonitis. For instance, if you try to friction massage a bursitis, you are probably going to really regret it for a few hours!

However, pain is an excellent guide. As long as you don’t persist when friction massage is too painful or showing no signs of working, you’re extremely unlikely to cause any harm.

If you ignore excessive pain, you might accidentally attempt to friction massage something that isn’t tendonitis

Otherwise, the worst case scenario is that you’ll waste a few minutes of your time. This is actually fairly likely. Although friction massage does seem to help many cases of tendonitis, unfortunately there are many conditions that get mistaken for tendonitis, and will therefore not be helped by friction massage.

Tendonitis-like conditions that may not respond as well to friction massage

Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS), a.k.a. runner’s knee, is a common condition causing strong pain on the lateral surface of the knee. And it is almost certainly not a tendonitis, per se. Recent scientific evidence has clearly shown that ITBS is much more likely to be caused by irritation of tissue underneath the tendon, and not by the tendon itself. Friction massage is less likely to provide the right kind of stimulation for this condition, and that’s what evidence shows.7

Iliotibial band syndrome is not a tendonitis, and probably cannot be helped by friction massage. In fact, ITBS is a greatly misunderstood condition in general. For more information, see PainScience.com’s advanced tutorial about IT band syndrome.

Tennis elbow may or may not be a “true” tendonitis, despite appearances. Myofascial pain syndrome (muscle knots) in the forearm is much more common than true tendonitis, and yet causes extremely similar symptoms. The main difference is a subtle difference in location and “hotness” and “sharpness” of the pain. Tendonitis will be a nastier, sharper, more burning pain with greater sensitivity to pressure—and felt primarily in the tendon. Myofascial pain syndrome will involve duller, more aching pain, with the greatest sensitivity just a little further “south” in the muscles. Since the two conditions routinely co-exist, aggravating each other, you’re unlikely to have a clear sense of the problem being one or the other. This also means that your mileage with friction massage will vary — it may work well, or it may not work at all.

Plantar fasciitis, a common kind of pain in the arch of the foot, is another complex condition that is sort of like a tendonitis, but not really. Certainly it involves irritation of the connective tissue on the bottom of the foot, which is sort of like a tendon. However, plantar fasciitis is often more complex, and friction massage is more of a hail Mary treatment here — and meanwhile, there are some more evidence-based treatment methods for it. However, feel free to try a little friction massage!

A little more about muscle knots

Muscle knots — myofascial “trigger points” — are a factor in most of the world’s aches and pains. Their biology is still mostly mysterious: conventional wisdom says they are tiny spasms, but they might also be a more pure neurological problem. Regardless, they can cause strong pain that often spreads in confusing patterns, and they grow like weeds around other painful problems and injuries, making them quite interesting and tricky. Although they are well known to many specialists and researchers, most doctors and therapists know little about them, so misdiagnosis is epidemic.

Triggers points fairly routinely fool people into thinking that they have tendonitis. Don’t be fooled! Surprisingly intense muscle pain is a much more common phenomenon than tendonitis (and tendonitis isn’t exactly rare). At their worst, muscle knots can be extremely painful and seem very, very much like a tendonitis. However, most muscle knots can’t hold a candle to the hot, burning intensity and extreme sensitivity of a tendonitis.

A true, acute tendonitis has the sensitivity of an infected hang nail — you can barely brush it or move the muscle without jumping in pain. Muscle knots usually involve duller, more aching pain that rarely seems to be “in” a tendon.

Trigger points can often be treated easily by a wide variety of massage techniques. Ironically, sometimes friction massage might seem to be successfully treating a tendonitis, when in fact it might be successfully treating a muscle knot.

Muscle pain is incredibly common. That’s why I offer a popular basic self-massage guide, as well as an extremely detailed trigger point e-book for people with tougher cases…

What is the uncertainty principle, also known as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle, also known as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle known as complementary variables, such as position x and momentum p, can be known simultaneously. Introduced first in 1927, by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg, it states that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa.[1] The formal inequality relating the standard deviation of position σx and the standard deviation of momentum σp was derived by Earle Hesse Kennard[2] later that year and by Hermann Weyl[3] in 1928:

 \sigma_{x}\sigma_{p} \geq \frac{\hbar}{2} ~~

(ħ is the reduced Planck constant).

Historically, the uncertainty principle has been confused[4][5] with a somewhat similar effect in physics, called the observer effect, which notes that measurements of certain systems cannot be made without affecting the systems. Heisenberg offered such an observer effect at the quantum level (see below) as a physical “explanation” of quantum uncertainty.[6] It has since become clear, however, that the uncertainty principle is inherent in the properties of all wave-like systems,[7] and that it arises in quantum mechanics simply due to the matter wave nature of all quantum objects. Thus, the uncertainty principle actually states a fundamental property of quantum systems, and is not a statement about the observational success of current technology.[8] It must be emphasized that measurement does not mean only a process in which a physicist-observer takes part, but rather any interaction between classical and quantum objects regardless of any observer.[9]

Since the uncertainty principle is such a basic result in quantum mechanics, typical experiments in quantum mechanics routinely observe aspects of it. Certain experiments, however, may deliberately test a particular form of the uncertainty principle as part of their main research program. These include, for example, tests of number–phase uncertainty relations in superconducting[10] or quantum optics[11] systems. Applications dependent on the uncertainty principle for their operation include extremely low noise technology such as that required in gravitational-wave interferometers.[12]
