Posture

Willoughby Thai Massage

Our posture is the position in which we hold our body. There is an ideal posture, which allows an even distribution of weight in the spine. Ideal posture allows for better general health, better sports performance, and reduced chance of injury.

The ideal posture would be standing straight, with an imaginary line running from the top of the head through to the area of the foot just in front of the heel. The spine should be almost straight, curved out slightly to the back behind the shoulders.

If we hold our-self in the wrong posture for extended periods of time we will find our body will tighten to that position. This causes strain, and can be a difficult habit to break. It will reduce our mobility.

Improve Your Posture:

  • When standing of sitting lift the sternum, the front of your chest, so you head neck and shoulders sit comfortably. This should not require too much muscle effort.
  • Perform a few stretches, leaning back and pushing your midsection forward while pulling your shoulders and neck back. Do this while kneeling.
  • General exercise that builds muscle will make good posture easier. Try squats, dead lifts, lunges, running.
  • De -stressing will help posture. Massage helps here, as does meditation.
  • Keep the weight off, so you don’t have to spend so much effort holding up the weight.

Benefits of Massage

Artarmon Thai Massage

Many people have a regular massage, sensing the improvements it makes to their life. Indeed, massage benefits us in several ways that often go unrecognized. Most of us just get a massage because it feels good at the time, or because we feel better afterward.

Some Benefits of Massage:

  • It improves circulation in the body.
  • The improved circulation helps remove toxins from the body.
  • Massage boosts the immune system, so we get sick less often, or recover more rapidly.
  • Massage will reduce mental and emotional stress. This doesn’t remove all the causes of stress, but it certainly helps us to deal these causes, and perhaps be in a better position to resolve a few of them.
  • Massage can relieve depression.
  • Massage can help us feel more alive and think more clearly by improving the mind/body connection.
  • Massage can increase energy. Many diet and exercise fads have come and gone, but massage always remained popular because it is effective.
  • Massage can help us sleep, which improves our health in many ways; we think more clearly, have more energy, avoid absent minded mistakes.
  • Massage can relieve many types of headaches.
  • Massage will relieve muscle pain
  • Massage helps us recover from exercise and sport exertion.
  • It helps us look younger by improving the appearance of skin.
  • It helps counteract all the sitting that most of us do. If we sit at a desk all day we strain our health, circulation and back posture. Massage goes a long way to counteracting this.
  • Massage helps us relax.

Living Longer and Better

Artarmon Thai Massage

It is perhaps only a slight exaggeration to say that we all would like to live longer, and live in the best health possible. Hopefully we can do this without too much effort, spending our time enjoying life rather than trying to maintain our health. Studies of various cultures and individuals who have lived a long and healthy life have given some insights into the situation.

Purpose – Having a goal, and presumably some success with it, or a spiritual meaning for your life, make a big difference. Those with meaningful values and goal lived an average of seven years longer.

Stress management – Hardly surprising that this is important. Anything that kept stress down was helpful, from socializing to massage to prayer.

Keep Moving – People who exercised most days, who kept active, lived longer and suffered less stress. This could be a simple as walking and gardening.

Moderate diet. – This is a mixture of healthy diet and not overeating. Certainly natural (unprocessed) foods were best, with healthy probiotics and a lot of vegetables, were better than junk food. And not overeating, eating till you are 80% full, made a huge difference. Our body functions better at a moderate weight and minimal strain.

Moderate Alcohol – Maybe this was helping with stress, but a little alcohol, 1 or 2 glasses per day, seems beneficial.

Social Community – social connections and religious services make for a healthier, happier life.

Family – People who lived a long life remained close to their immediate and extended family.

Massage makes all the difference to our health. It reduces stress, boosts the immune system, and significantly helps us to recover from exercise and sport.

Flight or Flight

Artarmon Thai Massage

The sympathetic nervous system prepares the body for emotionally intense situations, anything from anger and legitimate threats to embarrassment to stage fright. This is known as the fight or flight response. This means increasing heart rate, oxygen intake, and blood supply. The parasympathetic system works in opposition to this, restoring the body to more normal operation after the stimulation is over.

Problems can occur if we are stuck in the fight of flight. Or if we overreact and get stressed by a relatively mild problem. It can also be an issue if the fight/flight response prevents us form tackling the problem that caused it, if we are stressed by an exam or deadline for example.

We can deal with the stress by a few methods. Meditation is one popular method, or tea with l-theanime, or even holding a cold object against the body. Massage is also popular, and possibly the best long term approach.

Good diet and good sleep help us deal with stress. A heavy weighted blanket helps some people sleep, apparently reducing the fight/flight response.

Bed Bugs

Artarmon Thai Massage

A decent night’s sleep is essential to our healthy. There are many factors that can disrupt our sleep, leading to constant daytime tiredness, poor thinking, absent mindedness, poor health and a compromised immune system. If we can remove anything that compromise sleep we will soon feel a noticeable improvement.

Bed buds are one factor that compromises sleep and long term health. These are tiny, stubborn insects that live in our bedding that feed on our blood and discarded skin. They are hard to see, but leave small red marks and rashes on our skin. Bed bugs will compromise our sleep simply by making us uncomfortable, so they should be eliminated.

Removing Bed Bugs:

  • A vacuum Cleaner will remove a lot of bed bugs and their eggs. Scrub the mattress and general area first with a stiff brush to loosen the, then thoroughly vacuum. Then dispose of the vacuum bag.
  • Put sheets/bedding in the freezer for a few hours, perhaps overnight. The bed bugs will not survive the cold.
  • Put the sheets/bedding through a hot wash and hang on the clothesline. The hot water in the wash will kill bedbugs. UV light from the Sun (when hung outside) will also disinfect sheets. A hot cloths drier is also effective.
  • Steam cleaners will also kill bed bugs.
  • A hot air drier (or a hot air gun used for electronics) will kill bed bugs on bedding, carpet and skirting boards. Vacuum afterwards.
  • Use pillow and mattress protectors. These are tightly woven cloths that prevent bugs from living inside the bedding. Leave these on for at least a year.
  • Spray the mattress and bedding with dilute Tea Tree Oil. This kills bugs, and smells quite good. Lavender Oil also works. Use this daily.
  • Diatomaceous Earth is a natural insect killer tat is not-toxic to humans and animals. Use this on and around beds. Use food grade Diatomaceous Earth.

Alpha Waves

Thai Massage Artarmon

It is good to be in a relaxed, yet focused state of mind when working. And it is good to sometimes be in a totally relaxed state of mind in order to recuperate from the activities of our daily lives. These different states of mind have been subject to a great deal of scientific study. And we now know that there is a strong correlation between the state of mind and the brain’s electromagnetic brainwaves.

 

A deeply relaxed state of mind produces alpha waves, though it has also been noted that these alpha waves can produce the deeply relaxed state of mind. These waves are vibration between 8-12 Hz.  This state of mind is meditation.

We do well to enter this Alpha state of mind. It is the type of brain function that lets us put our experiences together and sort ourselves out. We do something similar when we sleep, though for reasons not fully clear we seem to need both regular sleep and at least some regular meditation. The two states of mind and functions are similar, but not identical.

We can achieve an alpha state of mind through conscious meditation, or by relaxing with a massage. This help us keep ourselves together. We might also achieve meditation and alpha waves through audio devices that produce the sound of ocean waves or binaural beats that vibrate at the prerequisite 8-12 Hz.

Massage is good for us at many levels. It is worthwhile having a regular massage if only to feel more relaxed.

Blue Light

Willoughby Thai Massage

A few modern day conveniences may work against us, at least if we are not careful. Many of us spend a significant part of the day looking at computer monitors, smartphone screens of other devices. These screen emit blue light, which has now been show to be harful to our eyes and general health.

Our eyes, if they are healthy, see all the colours of the visible spectrum, from red through to blue; think of the colours of a rainbow if you need to visualize the spectrum. Beyond this range, beyond blue, is the ultraviolet spectrum, which causes sunburn. Below it, below red, is infrared, which we feel as heat.

The blue light at the top of the spectrum and the ultraviolet beyond this is harsh on our eyes. Under normal conditions, in normal daylight, there is only a moderate amount of this light, so our eyes don;t suffer too much harm. But on bright sunny day there can be too much UV and blue light, so our eyes are straightened. Good quality polarized sunglasses remove most of this harmful glare, and should be worn in bright sunlight.

Computer screens emit more blue light than is good for us. Over long periods this harms our eyes. The blue light penetrates right to the back of the eye, where it can harm the light receptors. In the short term this is irritating. Eventually it causes eyesight problems as we age.

An addition problem with blue light is that it affects our circadian rhythms, our ability to stay away during the day and sleep at night. If we are exposed to blue light late in the day, say by using a smartphone before bed, then we will have considerable trouble sleeping. This leads to a terrible situation where we are tired during the day and unable to sleep at night.

Adding a blue blocking filter to a screen will remove most, perhaps all of the blue light. This prevents sleep problems. Some modern computers and devices (with windows 10) offer a screen option with the blue light removed. this looks to be quite effective, and is highly recommended.
