Hawthorn Tree Massage

When I was first asked to write this column I was taken back and thought do I want to do that? After sleeping on it I decided yes I would and the wonderful folks in the emu business and those that read the Emu's Zine deserve to know about the great benefits of massage. It’s not often you get a chance to express yourself about what you are passionate about, that being, Emus and Massage.

It is my hope that I can express myself in a manner that is going to excite Emu's Zine readers about massage and how it can improve their health and well being.

A little history to let you know something about me and where I am coming from. I was born and raised on a farm in Montana among 10 brothers and sisters, graduated from college with a degree in Ag Engineering. I spent 20 years in the US Army and then worked at Boeing on the B2 Bomber for 15 years before I launched on a career that I love, Massage Therapy. Looking at the job opportunities, I decided to incorporate Massage into our Emu ranch operation. We added an office onto our home, I talked my wife, Tootie out of the dining room to make it into a Massage room and the business was launched.

Massage school was a challenge and I studied harder to get my degree than I did to get an engineering degree. Massage school gives you the basics and your license is really a learner’s permit. I have attended several courses and the type of massage that I practice was learned after Massage school. I am specializing in Muscle Release Technique and Positional Release Therapy. These techniques give me the tools to do things in helping people that seem unknown  in the medical profession.

My greatest joy is having a client that has been told their only option is an operation and being able to help them to a point where their body heals itself making the operation totally unneeded. In future articles I will talk about
different successes that I have had in helping people. When I get permission to use their names and stories I will share them with you. This is hopefully a way of letting you know that if you find yourself with the same situation that there is a way to get help without surgery.

For those wondering how emus play a part in massage, well they have a very important part. I use Emu oil mixed with Jajoba oil as my massage oil. The emu oil is like my secret weapon because it does so many things for my clients.  Emu oil helps with range of motion in joints and in many cases helps to reduce my client’s pains and swelling. In addition to massage uses, the emu oil moisturizes my client’s skin and leaves them feeling soft and good. It puts nutrients like Omega 3, 6 & 9 into my clients. For my older clients it helps thicken their skin and reduces bruising. Emu Oil helps with skin problems e.g. psoriasis, eczema and seborrhea.  Clients with scarring from operations benefit because the Emu oil softens the scar and in some cases even reduces the scar. Clients that are undergoing radiation treatment receive benefit from Emu Oil because it helps to revitalize their skin and reduce the effects of the radiation.

When you get your next massage do your therapist a favor and introduce him/her to Emu Oil and recommend they give it a try.
