6 Things About Pain : Your Doctor May Miss To Tell YouFFDSMay 12, 2016April 11, 2017
How often do you spend more than 30 minutes in a doctor’s cabin asking tips for a healthier lifestyle? Most healthcare professionals focus on curing your illness and helping you to get relief from symptoms than providing any advice on lifestyle changes. And so, our health care system is becoming more of an illness industry than the wellness. When you visit your doctor with a chief complaint of pain, mostly it is viewed as a symptom of some underlying condition. For instance, pain arising due to arthritis or pain caused by an injury. The underlying condition receives more attention for management than the symptom itself. However, pain in itself can be considered as a medical condition as it affects both physical and mental health of a person. Pain can affect your emotionally and bring down the quality of life. Here are few things about pain your doctor may not be able to tell you, but are important to know so that you can cope up well with pain.
1. Pain has a psychological connection
Being in pain is an emotional experience. Some experts suggest that perception of pain can be influenced by moods or beliefs. In some people pain is associated with mental illness. And, presence of mental illness can further worsen the condition. This kind of pain is identified as “Psychogenic Pain”. People who report persistent pain without any known physical cause, need to be evaluated for mood disorders or mental illnesses. And, so now you know why pain is referred to as an emotional experience.
2. Mental stress can increase your pain
Being in pain compromises your ability to bear the pain! This is a conclusion of a study conducted in University in Israel. Our brain is actually capable of reducing the sensation of pain. But when we are mentally stressed, the brain loses its ability to filter the pain signals and conversely the pain can be increased. You must therefore manage your mental stress to reduce suffering from pain.
Aromatherapy can help you manage stress. Try it!
3. Pain can be treated naturally
Pain medication is the most widely prescribed and used way of pain management. However, there are several natural therapies for pain management that have shown comparable efficacy to the medications. Thai Massage is a well-known therapy to reduce pain and fatigue. Studies report that it can be as effective as pain medication ibuprofen. Swedish Massage is an effective natural therapy to reduce muscle strain and pain.

4. Pain assessment is as important as treatment
Experts have introduced pain as “the 5th vital sign”. Meaning, pain can be considered to monitor level of physical functioning of an individual. Several Healthcare Organizations have introduced standards which stress on the patients’ right to appropriate assessment. This is because poor assessment of pain by the clinician may lead to undertreatment of pain. Pain is a uniquely personal experience and everyone reacts to it differently. Therefore assessment of pain is important before deciding the treatment options.
5. Wrong lifestyle habits can increase pain
You may not realise it, but you are partly responsible for aggravating pain. Wrong lifestyle habits such as slouching while sitting, sitting too much, sleeping on an old matteress or taking a wrong pillow, etc. can be the reason you suffer from neck or back pain. Correcting wrong lifestyle can help you ease your pain.
Did you know people who suffer from chronic pain cannot complete their sleep needs. To put in simpler words pain results in disturbed sleep and sleep deprivation further increases the pain. Either way there is a strong connection between poor sleep and pain perception. Studies suggest that sleep deprivation produces hyperalgesic changes that increase sensitivity to pain. Lack of sleep can also interfere with the activity of pain relieving medications.

The Untold History and Benefits of Traditional Thai MassageFFDSApril 7, 2016April 11, 2017
Did you know Thai Massage is as effective as a pain relieving medication Ibuprofen? Thai Massage is a dry massage therapy that is performed using different compressing and stretching actions that are similar to those used in Yoga. Thai Massage can benefit almost every organ in your body. This article gives some interesting information on origin of this effective therapy and its health benefit that you probably were not aware of.
The origins and history
Thai Massage is an ancient therapy that has been practiced in Thailand for thousands of years. It is believed that Thai Massage was developed more than 2500 years ago by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha ( Shivago Kompara ) a friend to the Buddha who had tremendous knowledge of medicine. Shivago is believed by most Thai healers to be the inventor of Thai traditional medicine. He is also referred to as the ‘Father Doctor” and the Thai healer practice the ethics of giving thanks to the Father Doctor before and after massage.
The experts and researchers also report that Thai medicine is believed to have “Rural” and “Royal Traditions. The rural traditions seem non-scholarly and rely on informal methods of education. The “Rural” tradition of healing seems to be passed down to generations through some secret code transmitted orally from the teacher to its pupils. On the other hand, the Royal tradition of Thai medicine is believed to be developed at the royal court and shows influence from India, China, the Muslim world. It seems to have a great influence from the Ayurvedic tradition from India.
Although the evolution of techniques and practices has happened in Thailand, the origin of Thai Massage can be actually traced to India. Its yoga philosophy is another reason to believe that this therapy has its roots in Ancient India.
The Principles of Thai Massage
Thai Massage is very different from the other massage therapies that usually involve tissue manipulation. It is a dry massage therapy and does not use any oils or lotion. Instead it is performed using deep compressing, rhythmic pressing, and stretching actions. The pressure, tension, and motion or vibration movements used during massage improve regional blood circulation. The Thai Massage is performed using different body parts such as palm, thumb, fingers, forearm, elbow or even feet.
Thai Massage used a variety of yoga like stretching positions that is believed to cause its therapeutic effects. Thai massage is based on principles of correcting the energy balance through the body. The basic principle of Thai Massage is to start with from the extremities of the body (laterally), work towards the core of the body (medially), and then back to the extremities. This ensured the flow of energy though the energy channels called meridians, and also improve blood circulation throughout the body.

The massage action improves the blood circulation throughout the body
5. Relieves musculoskeletal pain
Tight muscles can put pressure on the joints and cause musculoskeletal pain such as back pain or shoulder pain. Thai massage release the pressure from joints and allows them to fall back into proper alignment, relieving the pain.
6. Improves immunity
Improved blood circulation helps to remove the toxins from the body. This increases immunity to diseases

Relaxes body and mine to release of emotional or mental stress
