An Interesting Read!
Believe It Or Not!

We Humans Gotsta Have Us Some Touch Or We’ll All Die!

In 1958 Dr. Harry Harlow, a pioneer in touch deprivation research, conducted experiments at the University of Wisconsin that involved the isolation of monkeys during their early development stages. After a period of time, these touch deprived monkeys exhibited evidence of emotional and social impairment. The lack of touching during their early development years had left them neurotic and socially re****ed. Most female monkeys refused mating by becoming hostile and aggressive when approached. The monkeys that did mate rejected or harmed their young. Harlow observed that during periods of isolation, the infant monkeys valued tactile stimulation more than they did nourishment. Harlow then created two artificial surrogate “mothers.” One was a bear wired sculptor of a monkey and housed a bottle of formula. The other was a fur covered wire monkey that felt and smelled like other monkeys, but offered no food. The infant monkeys preferred to cling to the “mother” who provided a semblance of physical contact without nourishment rather than to the wire models that provided food.

*In the early 1960's Bernard Grad, a Canadian biochemist, conducted his groundbreaking touch research on mice. 300 mice were selected and injected in the same manner. One-third were allowed to heal without intervention, 1/3 were held by medical students who did not profess to heal, and 1/3 were held by a faith healer. After just two weeks, the mice held by the faith healer recovered remarkably faster than the mice in both of the other groups.

In the 1970's, Dr. Delores Krieger, a professor at New York University, became interested in touch healing through studies like Grads. She was fascinated with the idea that intent was so important in Healing Touch. Using non-invasive techniques, Krieger wanted to apply the concept of Grads work in a way that could help her patients.
Through Krieger’s research a tangible relationship emerged between touching and healing. She was able to measure an increase in the hemoglobin content of the blood, which directly corresponded to levels of touching. Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying molecule in red blood cells. In Krieger’s study, when a healthy person placed his hands on or near an ill person for 10 to 15 minutes with the intent to heal, this was enough to cause a measurable increase.

Published in 1986, Dr. Tiffany Field Ph.D., professor of Pediatrics, Physiology, and Psychiatry of the University Of Miami School Of Medicine, began a research project to study the effects of massage on 40 premature babies. Half of the group was massaged three times a day for 15 minutes for 10 days. The massaged infants gained 47% more weight. They spent less time in the hospital than the babies who were not massaged, even though both groups of babies had the same number of feedings and average the same intake per feeding. The massaged babies were also more active, alert, and stayed about 6 days less in the hospital. The massaged babies were also more socially active, more responsive, and had better coordination and motor skills than the nonmassaged babies.
Then Dr. Tiffany Field published in 1997, at the Touch Research Institute in Miami, where she'd found that individuals who received a 15-minute seated massage twice a week showed increased cognitive ability, performed better on math tests, and completed problems with increased accuracy and speed. These individuals also experienced a significant decrease intention over individuals who practiced traditional relaxation techniques without massage.

In the 1950s, Wayne Dennis published his findings on what he called, infant and child "retardation". His research was based on his experience at an orphanage in Beirut, Lebanon. He found that the facility that contained the orphanage was more than adequate, but because of the orphanages meagre income, personnel was limited to one employee to ten infants. The children were only taken out of the cribs for feedings, diaper changing, and a daily bath. The children remained in the crib until they began to pull up on the sides. From that point, they were placed in a playpen during the daylight hours with two other children. Opportunities for touch were very limited. *A large number of these children died, even though they were receiving adequate nutrition and hygiene. The children who did survived where dwarfed or deformed. The explanation Dennis gave for his findings of marasmus (wasting away) combined with the tactic death rates of the Lebanese orphanages were the result of touch deprivation, lack of physical stimulation, and learning opportunities. The employees were so busy providing for their physical needs, they did not have time to hold and caress the infants. *When aides were hired to rock and sing to these children, mortality rates dropped 70 percent.

In 1970, Dr. Marc H. Hollander conducted a study at the department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee, using a test group of 39 women. He found that the need for human contact varied from person to person. Furthermore, this need for touch changed from time to time. After conducting surveys and interviews with these women, He determined that more than 50% used s*x as a way of getting their touch needs met and not because they desired the s*xual act.
*Hollander and his team of researchers commented that the "desire to be cuddled and held is acceptable to most people as long as it is regarded as a component of adult s*xuality. The wish to be cuddled and held in a maternal manner is felt to be too childish. To avoid embarrassment or shame, women convert it into the longing to be held by a man as part of an adult activity, involving s*xual in*******se."

In the 1960s, Abraham Maslow, a renowned physiologist, placed the needs of human beings in a sequential order, from the most basic to the most Ideal and abstract. He believed that these needs directed all human behavior and as these basic needs are met, other needs began to emerge until the individual reaches what he terms "self-actualization". Maslow called this the Theory of Human Motivation.
Maslow states that we have five general needs, beginning from the biological needs of food, water, and sleep. The other levels, in order of importance are safety and security, love and belonging, self-esteem and the esteem of others and finally, self-actualization. Maslow characterized the self-actualized person as self accepting, striving to help others, and engaging in activities that will help the person achieve the highest potential. His model was later redesigned, with the help of other physiologist, to a border list of human needs. It is interesting to note that touching and skin contact are ranked very high on the list, Just below the individuals needs for a safe shelter. Many massage therapists will attest to the fact that clients often receive massage to get there "touch needs" met.

A Hierarchy of human needs:
(Completed in part from Maslow, 1962; Miller 1981; Weil, 1973; Glasser, 1985.)
1. Survival
2. Safety
3. Touching, skin contact
4. Attention
5. Mirroring and echoing
6. Guidance
7. Listening
8. Being real
9. Participating
10. Acceptance
Others are aware of, take seriously and
admire the Real You
Freedom to be the Real You
Tolerance of your feelings
Belonging and love
11. Opportunity to grieve losses and to
12. Support
13. Loyalty and Trust
14. Accomplishment
Mastery, power, control
Having a sense of completion
Making a contribution
15. Altering one’s State of
Consciousness, transcending the
16. Sexuality
17. Enjoyment or fun
18. Freedom
19. Nurturing
20. Unconditional Love (including
connection with a higher power)

The skin is so much more than an external covering. It is a highly sensitive boundary between our body and the environment. It offers protection, heat exchange, vitamin synthesis, waste removal and serves as a membrane of interfering. We can survive without sight, taste, smell, or hearing, but to lose our sense of touch would leave us walled off from our environment and from contact with others.
Touch offers us a sense of nourishment and a feeling of belonging. The need for touch intensifies during periods of stress and cannot be addressed without the participation of another person. Without touch, we experience profound physiological pain. If massage does nothing else than to nurture the human race through touch, our profession will be providing a great service.


Hey Folks! "The Straight-Up Truth!"👍
We Humans on this "Planet🌎Of Gravity" usually did not understand that the Body's Movement System will most definitely become "stoved-up" after the many years of abuse or neglect.
Humans should've been giving back to our Body by "Deep Stretching" throughout the body while we abused it!
If all humans would've simply "taken the time" to give back to our body what we used or have taken from it, then you would've NEVER needed my services as a Myo Practor!
"This is Great Advertising Right?"
But the Bottom Line is that if you're ever in "Extreme Pain" stemming from any types accidents, injuries, medical issues, or from any type of same repetitive movements or none movements (i.e. sitting at computers and not moving for hours and days on end) then Ya'z may be in desperate need of my MyoPractor services.
To request an appointment, just "Text" me by including the day and timeslot of your choice in the text, and I'll be glad to give Ya'z the business!👍😎

Got Pain? Bring It On!👍
As a 'Modern Day Myopractor" I use advanced techniques as a form of muscular-skeletal bodywork. A form of a deeper inner stretching of your bodies movement lines, cables or puppet strings so to speak, which relieves long term nerve pain and realigns the skeletal body frame and brings those Myo Fascia movement lines back to their normal supple lengths. This allows you to move about more freely with less movement restrictions, which is mostly due to the "Gravity of this Planet".
"Back in the Day" Doctors routinely attributed back pain to various structural abnormalities of the spine... Go Figure? Then later studies revealed that 88% of most patients had "TENSION" which will relate to migraine headaches, heartburn or stomach ulcer, colitis, spastic colon, allergies and a few less common disorders all of which are related to tension.
Tension in the body most certainly affects the circulation of the blood/oxygen to the areas of the body that are in pain! In 1973 a couple of German scientists discovered that oxygen deprivation to the back area was the cause of back pain.

My theory is that our bodies become crystallized and movement restricted from not drinking enough of the required 8 cups of water each and every day of our lives, which then means over our years of aging we are also drying-up from within.
This crystallization also affects our blood flow, which supplies the nutrients and oxygen to the millions of cells of the body tissue, especially in the said pain areas where it is so badly needed! Our movements then become seemingly short, restricted and painful! Sometimes when we reach out for something, we'll tear the muscle tissue, unaware of this shortened Myo fascia.
All humans move and function starting from the bottom of our "feet" up and throughout the entire body to the tops our heads, because we are dealing with the gravity on this planet. We most certainly become more crystallize, then restricted in our movements, which infringes on our nerves and is perceive as pain! Bingo!


Howdy Folks!
Are you waking-up in a Jam these mornings?
If you'd noticed when you wake-up that your body seems tighter or your movements ache and have pain while first trying to move your limbs, you're not alone on this Planet of Gravity!
I've studied MyoFascial movement lines most all of my life and always have worked on stretching my fascia out since 17 years of age.
I Can Fix That! Is what I tell clients who are in such movement pains. Just know that Tightened Myo Fascia is my Specialty and I'd be more than glad to help you out of your Jam-Up too!
After all, That's what I do for a living... 😎
Whatever pain you maybe experiencing... Bring It On!👍

Howdy Folks!
It's a hot summer coming and the first thing to concern yourself about is your water in-take! We Humans tend to usually keep on "Keeping On" through-out the heat of the summer without adding or adjusting our water In-take as we venture outside in the heat.
Our "movement systems" becomes more restricked as we tend to dry out. Don't get caught-up into too much outdoor activities without hydrating also!
If you start feeling a little stiffer in the early rising out of bed mornings, then your body is trying to tell you listen to the warning signs that the nerves are reeking at you... or you'll end up in my office sooner than you should need be! Fair Warning! 👍LOL
Below is an example of how the body slams on the breaks when you reach that point of "the end of the line" with your own movement system...


Unfortunately, if you are feeling stoved-up or in pain from too much of the same repetitions or movements of any type during the summer months, then I have some information for you!
Usually your free flowing movement fluidness starts to become more crystallized or feels like it is becoming less fluidly like, which then your movements appear to feel more restricted, once we slightly start drying up or dehydrating as the warm summer months start to set in!
Water is always the "secret ingredient" that is slightly missing when you start to feel restricted movement lines that should normally be like easy fluid flowing... So, remember "My Friends", to drink more fluids when you are out in Mother Nature's Heat!... Take short breaks during yard work or hard workouts especially when working or playing in the outdoors during the summer heat!

This Vid is regarding plantar fasciitis, where the bottom of your foot, which is where we function from dealing with gravity on the planet Earth and sometimes you can get that stoved-up on the very bottom of your foot, which then can jack your patterned lines out of whack and have you stepping differently and cause all kinds of aching us throughout up and down the body choir folks where they throw their bodies all around on the Dance Floor.

Well Now! I guess I still have the Magic Touch regarding fixing knees... Miss Diane here we'll explain how I fixed her knee that she injured back in November of 2015, while walking her two Rottweiler dogs on leashes when a fella appeared, without a leash on his dog, and a little excitement between all 3 of the dogs involved started happening. Diane then had to pull so tight on the leashes of both of her dogs, that she actually pulled herself quickly forward down onto the ground and damaged her right knee at that very moment!
