About this title


Why does a man who is well into his retirement take up a new career as a massage therapist? What can massage offer to society? How does one go about learning it? Sam Wong deals with these and other intriguing questions in this book. He provides an authentic account of learning and blending Western massage and Chinese tui na, highlights the role of inspiring teachers in helping him to become a massage therapist, and documents the effectiveness of massage as an alternative treatment for fibromyalgia and other chronic pains. Sam's insights on tui na in traditional Chinese medicine are fascinating and unique.

About the Author:

Sam Wong began formal study of massage therapy in Northern Virginia Community College in 2010 after his retirement from government service. He is trained in Western massage and Chinese tui na. He has created the Virginian Stretch and Yin Yang Touch and has adapted massage to treating fibromyalgia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and scoliosis. Primarily a research massage therapist in private practice, Sam is a board-approved continuing education provider and board-certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork. He promotes caring for caregivers as essential for healthcare and provides free massages to veterans and their caregivers in the DC area.
