Massage Articles & Information

After 30+ years of being in the Hand & Body Lotion, Massage Oils & Lotions, and the Cosmetic Industry. I realized that there wasn't a good place for people to get the proper information, news, and articles about the massage industry. Whether it be making massage products, proper techniques of massage, which oils go with what essential oils, etc... After navigating the internet for the last 10 years I noticed a small amount of websites trying to do this with little effect.

Mechanism for Weight Gain Among Massaged Preterm Babies

Following up on a groundbreaking study showing that premature newborns who are massaged gain more weight than non-massaged preemies, the researchers at Touch Research Institutes (TRI) at the University of Miami Medical School now have a good idea why.
In the study "Vagal activity, gastric motility, and weight gain in massaged preterm neonates," published in July in The Journal of Pediatrics, the TRI team revisited a 1986 study that first revealed that massage therapy facilitates weight gain among preterm infants. Additional studies have yielded the same result. This time, researchers wanted to find out why. They set out to test whether moderate-pressure massage stimulates vagal activity, leading to more efficient food absorption through increased gastric motility and the release of food-absorption hormones, such as insulin.
In the study, which was conducted through the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, 48 hospitalized preterm infants were randomly placed into a control group, a massage-therapy group, or a sham massage-therapy group. The massage-therapy group received three 15-minute periods of massage per day for five days. First the infant lay prone, and was stroked with moderate pressure for five one-minute segments: from the top of head to the neck and then back again; from the neck across the shoulders; from the upper back to the waist and back again; from the thigh to the foot and back on both legs; and from the shoulder to the hand and back again on both arms. In a supine position, both of the infant’s legs and arms were extended and flexed.
The sham group received the same protocol, except light pressure was used during the massage strokes.
Measurements taken during the study included mean weight gain and calories consumed per day, heart rate, automatic nervous system function and gastric motility. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to assess equivalence across groups and for group differences in weight gain, calorie consumption and days until discharge. Group (control vs. massage vs. sham) by time (pre/during/post) ANOVAs were conducted on vagal and sympathetic activity and gastric motility measures. Pearson’s correlation analysis was used to assess the relationships between weight gain, vagal activity and gastric motility.
Data analysis revealed that weight gain was significantly related to changes in vagal tone during the massage, and changes in gastric motility after the massage. The massaged preterm infants gained 27-percent more weight than infants in the control group, even though they did not consume more calories. Their vagal activity peaked during the massage and remained higher than baseline through the 15-minute post-stimulation period.
The moderate-massage-therapy group also exhibited 21-percent greater weight gain than the sham massage group. This latter group did not exhibit a significant change in vagal activity or gastric motility during the treatment or post-treatment phases of the study. "These moderate- versus light-pressure massage therapy findings suggest the involvement of pressure receptors and/or baroreceptors," the study authors noted.
"The change in vagal activity elicited by massage therapy was significantly related to weight gain during the 5-day treatment period. This suggests that neonates who demonstrated increased vagal activity during massage are more likely to benefit from massage therapy," they concluded.

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.

Generic Cialis is consumed orally and has quickly become one of the most prescribed medications. Generic Levitra has been clinically proven to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.

Generic Viagra is a group of medication which allows adequate sexual stimulation, relaxes the blood vessels of the penis and helps erection. Generic Propecia is a product for men. It can increase hair growth and prevent further hairloss. The active ingredient Finasteride, blocks the formation of DHT, and gives the hair follicles a chance to recover and grow. Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.
