The word itself ... MASSAGE ... instantly brings to mind white towels, relaxation, a spa-like environment (oops! I'm dozing off!!)

Massage therapy is a practice that dates back thousands of years. There are many types of massage therapy; all involve manipulating the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. Today, massage therapy is sometimes part of conventional medicine. In other instances, it is part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

Massage: The pressing, rubbing, and moving of muscles and other soft tissues of the body, primarily by using the hands and fingers. The aim is to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the massaged area.

There are many ways a massage or massage therapy can benefit your state of mind, health, and specific conditions; all from the OutsideIN!

I look forward to delving into this topic with you!

Who Is Edgar Cayce?

Category: Castor Oil Exposť
Posted: 2007-07-04 22:28

While this may appear to be a history essay, I am penning several articles which make reference to this man. I thought it only fair to give you a head's up!

Edgar Cayce was a medical intuitive known as the "sleeping prophet", whom many regard as the father of modern holistic medicine. Cayce was born on a farm near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877. A poor student, he received no more than a grammar school education, and eventually took up photography as a trade. He introduced castor oil packs for the treatment of many conditions. In Cayce's writings, castor oil is presented as a marvelous source of natural remedies.

Today, alternative medicine and various traditional medicines use castor oil externally for a wide variety of treatments. Edgar Cayce carefully documented the ailments and treatments for thousands of patients. These writings are compiled into volumes which serve as reference data and springboards for research. What we call Modern Medicine continues to prove the efficacy of castor oil treatments which border on miraculous.

Edgar Cayce was well-known in certain circles when he was alive but it could never be said he was world famous. He was a prolific psychic reader and healer. His health readings are contemporary in their focus, emphasizing good nutrition, exercise and natural healing.

For additional reading Wikipedia has a thorough biography.
