Most Common Cause of Fatigue that is Missed or Misdiagnosed by Doctors

Mercola Your adrenal glands are each no bigger than a walnut and weigh less than a grape, yet are responsible for one of the most important functions in your body: managing stress. "The adrenals are known as 'the glands of stress,'" writes James Wilson in his book Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome. "It is their job to enable your body to deal with stress from every possible source, ranging from injury and disease to work and relationship problems. About Hypertonic Muscle Spasm. “Hypertonic muscle spasm”, also known as hypertonus, means “too much muscle tone”, and is unfortunately very common.

About Hypertonic Muscle Spasm

[Muscle tone is the residual tension in a resting muscle – the amount of contraction that remains when a muscle is not actively working.] Hypertonus is beyond conscious control, it does not always produce direct awareness of its presence, and it surfaces in many ways not normally associated with muscle. GCSE Bitesize: Homeostasis. Biology Innovation. Homeostasis is the control of internal conditions, be it temperature, specific blood conditions or other variables within living organisms.

Biology Innovation

The term ‘Homeostasis’ was first defined by the French physiologist, Claude Bernard, in 1865. The purpose of homeostasis is to provide a consistent internal environment for set processes to occur. Each process, or reaction, has a desirable peak environment called the norm. Influences, such as an external influence, can cause deviation away from this norm level and the body will correct this change – this is called negative feedback. Animal Massage.

N order to understand the benefits and effects of massage, it is important to consider how the body responds physiologically. Benefits of Massage - A WebsiteBuilder Website. In order to understand the benefits and effects of massage it is important to consider how the body responds physiologically. Massage involves two types of responses: Mechanical responses as a result of pressure and movement as the soft tissues are manipulated.Reflex responses in which the nerves respond to stimulation. Movement%20Chart. Mobile Massage Homepage. Effleurage : Massage Technique : Massage Therapy : Holistic Therapies. Effleurage is the most basic massage movement and is often used as a linking movement by which the therapist maintains contact with the client while smoothly transferring from one movement or area of the body to the next.

Effleurage is suitable for use on any area of the body that would normally be massaged (obviously while avoiding any areas in which massage is contra-indicated). The word "effleurage" is derived from the french verb "effleurer" which means "to stroke", or "to skim over". International Animal Rescue. Welcome to IPAN(India Project for Animals and Nature) The Groomers Lounge Message Board - Blog View - Chapter Four...Principles and Massage Concepts. Bridging the Interspecies Gap Clearly there is a great difference between massaging a human client and an animal client. Looking past all of the physiological differences between the two species, we can also put some thought into the way our client can and cannot communicate with us, what they can take from us and what we can take from them. Animals cannot clearly verbalize where there is pain; they cannot verbally tell you when you are in the correct area or give you vocal feedback on whether or not your methods and technique are meeting their needs.

Instead we as canine massage practitioners must use our knowledge and develop our intuition to feel the canine form and look for suspect areas, to watch their movements, gestures, posture and mannerisms. With time, the inhibitions that an animal may have with meeting you and your laying hands on them, will fall away. Greeting With Your VoiceSpeak softly and kindly when you approach a dog.
