Healing Massage Therapy

Dr. John Zeravich during a healing massage session

I like to say when you choose healing massage therapy you’re choosing to be well as opposed to opening yourself up to sickness.

Massage is therapeutic because it helps release the inner emotional and spiritual stresses that eventually manifest as your physical pain or disease.

All pain, whether chronic or acute is alleviated by correct massage practices.

Fatigue is helped. So is a wide range of physical illnesses.

The reason for this is you can’t physically experience pain or disease until negative inner patterns or emotions are present long enough to develop their physical counterparts.

Inner disharmony comes first. Cancer, heart disease, joint pain, back pain, etc…it all comes second.

I’ve found that if we compare Sickness Care & Wellness Care the reasons for why healing massage therapy is beneficial for long-term wellness become clear.

What is Sickness Care?

Sick or Well.

Sickness care is also known as symptomatic relief care.

Sickness care is usually employed as a reaction to your body failing to thrive.

You may be going along symptom free and think you are well. All of a sudden you develop symptoms and immediately you do anything you can to get rid of them. You employ symptomatic relief care.

You may already know that the majority of chronic illnesses in America are the direct result of lifestyle:

  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • diabetes
  • cancer
  • heart disease
  • strokes

...are all related to our lifestyle choices.

Interestingly, these chronic illnesses are hidden with no symptoms until it's almost too late.

Our current medical culture is trained in reactive medicine, meaning that they react to your symptoms.

Allopathic Physicians rarely practice preventative medicine.

For example, let us say you have a headache. You have been told by your doctor and television commercials that a certain medication will relieve your symptoms.

You go out, buy the product, and after a few doses your pain is gone so you assume you are well.

By choosing sickness care you ignore your body's natural warning signals. (similar to the red light that comes on in your car)

You simply suppress the underlying causes of your symptoms for the benefits of fast relief.

Unfortunately, the underlying causes of your symptoms are still there, hidden away, continuing to affect your nervous system and organs... continuing to cause injury and illness.

Are you currently taking:

  • hypertension medications to lower your blood pressure
  • statins to lower your blood cholesterol
  • diabetes medications to lower your blood sugars
  • stomach acid medications to relieve acid reflux

...if so, you are on a Sickness Care protocol.

Don't get upset, you're only doing what you learned from your medical doctor and television commercials.

You're following the advice of reactive, sickness care practitioners instead of a healing massage therapy practitioner.

Today, sickness care is causing a pandemic of side-effects that make your original problem worse.

For more in-depth information about your pharmaceutical medications go to www.worstpills.org or Google the exact name of your prescription.

Take the side-effects of your medications very seriously.

What is Wellness Care?

Wellness care is approaching your symptoms from their root cause.

Wellness care seeks to identify the underlying reason for your symptoms. It's like pulling the root of the weeds from your garden instead of just the tops.

Wellness care encourages vitality and natural joint pain relief.

For example, let's take the headache example above. You have a headache. You stop and think, what could be the underlying cause?

There are many underlying headache causes, such as:

  • not drinking enough water
  • nutritional deficiencies
  • not sitting properly
  • a bone in your neck that has been misaligned

...among many others.

When you choose Wellness Care you're moving your body toward a true Vitalistic, Whole Body healing. You maximize your body's ability to self-heal.

Unfortunately, many people don't choose Wellness Care because their medical doctors don't receive training in that area and resist referring their patients to someone who has.

Also their "Sickness", not "Health", Insurance Companies won't pay for preventative, healing massage therapy.

However, when you decide that your health is your most important asset, you will make room in your budget for Wellness Care just as you do for your Starbuck's latte every day.

Non-Force Chiropractic & Healing Massage Therapy = Wellness Care

By integrating ancient, vitalistic protocols and techniques, the cause of your symptoms are identified and dealt with in a multi-facited, non-invasive and Whole Body approach.

Your symptom relief may take longer than the sickness care pharmaceutical method but you'll eliminate the root cause of your symptoms and your body will heal on a deep, Spirit, Mind and Body level.

Reducing your chance of your symptoms recurring.

As you make your choice for Sickness or Wellness Care be aware that your health is your most precious asset.

Just ask someone you know that doesn't have good health and you'll quickly find they'd do anything or pay any amount to regain that asset they've lost.

You are worth healing.
