The Amazing Kinesio Taping® Suzanne Newman Gotcher’ Back Massage Therapy

 I am amazed at the results I am getting with my clients as much as they are. This is truly fascinating relieving pain and edema so quickly in most cases. The Tape is water proof so it can stay on up to 5 days. The increased lymphatic circulation in muscle and joint pain relief is astounding. There is a vast amount that can be done with taping. Please call for an appointment today 609-683-1608.

  Kinesio Taping® is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping® exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology. Hence the name “Kinesio” is used. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature and much more. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms in the body.

  Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body’s own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. The use of Kinesio Taping® creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles and organs. The first application of Kinesio Taping® was for a patient with articular disorders.

  The first 19 years Kinesio Taping was used by Orthopedists, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and other medical practitioners, where the main users of Kinesio Taping®. Olympic volleyball players discovered Kinesio Taping® and soon there after the word spread to other athletes. Today Kinesio Taping® is accepted by medical practitioners and athletes.

  Muscles constantly extend and contract within a normal range; however, when muscles over extend and over contract and a good example of a muscle in this condition is a person lifting an excessive amount of weight.The muscles can’t recover and becomes inflamed, the fatigue also comes from the muscle being swollen and stiff. The space between the skin and muscle is compressed, resulting in constriction to the flow of lymphatic fluid. The compression also applies pressure to the pain receptors beneath the skin, which in turn communicates,” discomfort signals” to the brain thus the person experiences muscular pain.

   Conventional athletic tape is designed to restrict muscle movement of affected muscles and joints.For this purpose, layers of tape are applied around and / or over the injury. This pressure causes a significant obstruction of natural flow of body fluid. This type of tape wrapping is applied before a sport activity and removed immediately when the sport is finished. Kinesio Taping® is based on a different philosophy that aims to give free range of motion in order to allow the body’s muscular system to heal itself bio- mechanically.

 To ensure that the muscles have free range of motion, elastic tapes with an elasticity of 130-140% of its original length are recommended for Kinesio Taping®. This specific elasticity also will not allow an over stretch of the muscles themselves. It may look like conventional athletic tape, but tape and Kinesio Taping® is fundamentally different in many ways. 

  Kinesio Taping® alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The taped portion forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space. The result is that pressure and irritation are taken off the neural and sensory receptors, alleviating pain. Pressure is gradually taken off the lymphatic system, allowing it to channel more freely.

This might seem not to be about massage therapy, but I look at massage therapy as prevention from ill health. In Chinese medicine, we do not separate ourselves from the environment like we do in Western medicine. What I mean by this is the earth is made up of five elements, Wood, Metal, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements are within the body, but we continue to separate ourselves from nature more and more. I am not going to get into to much of five elements of Chinese medicine. If you’re interested in that, please feel free to do some research on it. I’m sure you’ll find it amazing.

Why I bring up the five elements of Chinese medicine is when we are out of balance with nature we become as unhealthy as our surroundings. Example, the bodies of waters of the world are getting more and more polluted. The body of water inside our body is the kidneys and Bladder. The reason I bring up this element is because there is a taste, a smell, an emotion and the negative feeling   is FEAR to the water element, Now you say, what does this have to do with massage.

Well, I’ll try to simplify it for you. The world as a whole is finally hitting the bottom. I hope for our sakes this is it. For years we have looked at the government as the mommy and daddy. We never question them why? They’ll take care of us, no questions asked. Are any of you really surprised that we are where we are today? Did everyone think that they could just go about their business focusing selfishly without any foresight on what was and is going on? Now, panic and fear mode, which accomplishes nothing. We are all responsible for the environmental, economical and financial mess we are in.

Then healthcare. I should really say our lack there of heath care. We never, ever question the doctor, after all it is so much easier to be the victim of our ill health. How could this have happened to me? I watch TV, it informs me of the medications that I should take to solve all my problem. It tells me all about the healthy foods from the fast food joints, to the prepared food, to the white flour to the sugar blah blah blah blah blah.

Well, I my friends am fed up with the ignorance of lazy, unmotivated, selfish people. I tell my clients the truth. I am not here to fix anyone. I am here to help you to heal, to give you information and your on your own. The people that come to me thinking I’m going to put a Band-Aid on them I will not continue seeing.

We need to teach ourselves to focus on finding the solution. Blame never brings about change. Taking responsibility for the parts you play in every relationship as well as removing yourselves from the ones that are unhealthy, is our responsibility.

The problems we have manifested will take time to solve. Taking responsibility for changing our health will take time as well. The most important part is to take charge of the thoughts we think, the way we look at each day and most important, the way we treat and talk to others. That my friend is really all we have control over.

Again, how does this tie into massage therapy? You have one body, one mind, and plenty of healing to do. I can offer massage therapy that helps you reconnect to your body even if it’s only for an hour. It takes stress to bring about change. Stress will always be in our lives. It does lodge itself in our bodies. It’s what we do with it and again I offer a solution through massage therapy.

I only hope that all of us can have a shift in our thinking and open our minds to healing ourselves. A ripple effect will happen if we as a whole get on a path of healing. It’s funny, I am not a religious person but, I am spiritual. I also have attention deficit disorder, so remembering things doesn’t come easy to me. It does strike me as unusual that the one thing that I do know by heart, is the Lord’s Prayer and massage therapy. I know with out one doubt massage works and I believe we can have a heaven here on earth.

I am finding it harder and harder to find Massage Therapists that know what they are doing. When I say this I am talking about Therapeutic Massage Therapy which is different than Spa/relaxation Massage. I work mostly on Athletes, Sports injuries and rehabilitation clients. I hear more and more from my new clients how frustrated they are with the Massage Therapists out there and how happy they are to have found me. I am pleased with their wonderful compliments and the new clients but, frustrated with whats going on with our Massage Therapists. Please for the people that are looking for a Massage Therapist out there, feel free to call me for referrals. I know great Chiroprators in Princeton, NJ, a few great Accupucturists, one excellent Rolfer/Structural integration therapist, energy workers and a few great nutritionists. I am also taking new clients daily and if you are at all unhappy with me I do know a few good Massage Therapists too.

To the Massage Therapists out there. Do not advertize things you can not do and are not your strenghts. People will not come back. Your client should not have to tell you what to do. You are the professional. It is so important to listen and yes, ask them their problem area/areas but, it is your job to know how to promote healing and to suggest things to your client to do to help them selves. I have had Massages where Therapists do not understand that every thing is connected and I had to show them what to do to release a muscle but, also work on the surrounding areas. Then hand them the money at the end. I walked out more stressed out than I did when I walked in.

Please read, watch video’s, attend seminars on what you do if you want clients and want to keep them. If you want to do fluff Massage say that you just do Swedish Massage. Every Massage should be geared to what your clients issues are. I have no two Massages that are alike. I don’t understand this name the Massage thing. They are custom made to suit you as they all should be by every Massage Therapist unless you are doing Swedish Massage which, I consider to do on someone who has lost a loved one, someone totally stressed out or won’t allow themselves to feel pain which says alot right there. Then don’t go there with them untill they are ready.

Don’t get me wrong, touch no matter what is healing as long as your intent is to heal. Just make sure you advertize what you do correctly. If you don’t clients do not come back.
