Hi All,

Every time a bang a nail into anything it reminds me of my approach to Rx.

Initially is just try to push it in with my own force.

The next time I use a tack hammer.

The next time I use a claw hammer.

The next time I use a club hammer.

The next time I use a sledge hammer.

The next time I use a JACK hammer.

The next time i refer to someone with a bigger hammer.

Bruising is no fun and I am not a tame therapist, I agree with working with the tissue and perhaps forcing it at times to comply also.

What a shocking article!
Who is the editor for the magazine? Do they actually have an editor? I sincerely doubt it as most of the articles look completely unedited.
The article is contradictory and misleading.

From the AAMT Facebook page:
A great article detailing the growing popularity in Remedial Massage and Cupping , featuring AAMT Committee Member Ian Coward. Click below to read.
http://readnow.isentia.com/Temp/69243704/205817929.pdf

Would hardly call it a great article, or detailed, paints a picture that remedial massage is TCM, has pictures of SBW bruised up and mentions bruising numerous times........ ( although the therapist in the article implies that "migratory cupping results in little or no bruising") and this guy is a committee member.................

Does anyone intentionally try to bruise their clients? Other than cupping? Not sure why you would, but i'm sure it is a side affect for some - depending on their physiology. Some of the scraping techniques that the US chiro's use (their stainless steel tools that they scrape fascia with - not sure about that) leave intense bruises. Doesn't seem to be any consequences other than a couple of broken blood vessels that have leaked a bit, then healed, then the leaked blood gets removed from the area by the lymph system. Isn't this normal?

Colin, do you have an opinion on cupping?


We are but a piece of one huge puzzle,....recognise it

Whatever happened to do no harm? Bruising is caused by therapist, therefore therapist needs to be accountable. That's your bruise, you caused it, and so you have left the client in a worse state than before they were treated. (Of course every treatment is very black and white like these statements).

Of course occasionally (and hopefully in every case unintentionally )there may be some bruising. It should be rare though, and should be an unusual reaction to your treatment instead of a usual one. I have seen therapists who bruise everyone they treat in the name of "deep tissue massage". That's what I'm not cool with.
