A growing body of research suggests that massage or manual therapy can be an important part of effective pain management. This research data, and the experience of physicians, massage therapists and patients, is encouraging people in pain to consider incorporating massage therapy into their pain management programs. To help us better understand this research and the growing role of manual therapy in in the management of pain, we'll be speaking with registered massage therapist, Michael Reoch. Michael Reoch is an active Registered Massage Therapist in BC, and owner of Well+Able Integrative Health. Michael sits on the Massage Therapists' Association of BC (MTABC) board, and is Chair of the MTABC Communications Committee. As a Board Director and Committee Chair, Michael promotes the ideals and the brand of the Association, and disseminates information through communications to current and prospective members, the media, the health care industry and the general public. Michael is also the Chair of the MTABC-sponsored Professional Practice Group for Pain Management: a group of RMTs who have a special interest in studying pain as pathology, and using that knowledge to best treat patients whose primary complaint is pain.

How does music therapy work?
Music therapy is facilitated through a variety of interventions including patient song choices, music making, song writing, improvisation, and guided relaxation. Other times, the music therapist works alongside other healthcare disciplines such as nurses, physiotherapist, or occupational therapist, using music during physical rehabilitation to inspire movement and promote encouragement by accompanying movement through musical cues, which also helps peoople become distracted from the pain.

Joanna tell us all about massage therapy
Body centric therapy or massage and more. We use hands, not needles. It is the body work that clears and focuses the mind thus restores you. The mind body connection brings you further then just a mere feel good massage.
According to Dr. Patricia Burke, getting massages on a regular basis is an excellent way of caring for oneself. In her brief article published recently in the June-August JaVintee Massage Newsletter, she discusses the fact that massages help to release endorphins which are natural chemicals from the brain that relieve pain and makes us feel good. Dr. Burke will be interviewed as a guest on the JaVintee Massage Radio Show, to discuss the benefits of massage therapy, and how it helps with coping with depression. Also on the show will be the lead Licensed Massage Therapists and Vice-President of JaVintee Massage, who will discuss some of the significant improvements she has noticed in her client's mood elevation as it relates to Massage Therapy.
