The Edgar Cayce Readings and Massage
Massage was recommended by Edgar Cayce in many of his readings. Edgar Cayceu00a0a medical clairvoyant provided medical diagnoses and treatment suggestions for thousands of people. His readings also included herbs; hydrotherapies; u00a0mechanical and electrical devices; osteopathy and remedies. Osteopathy, massage and hydrotherapy were most frequently recommended.
It is hard to believe that less than 100 years ago, massage was used mostly for medical conditions such as: anemia, neuritis, bronchitis, colds, heart diseases, constipation, sprains, arthritis, polio, fractures, digestive organ disease. It is true, many of the most prominent physicians and surgeons of the 19th and early 20th centuries recommended, practiced, and wrote about using massage medically and with the u00a0musculoskeletal system.
The Edgar Cayce readings suggested massage as part of the treatment for physiological effects on lymph and venous circulation, the skin, muscles, the nervous systems, but also used to coordinate other body systems used for eliminations with assimilation. Edgar Cayce described the relationship between the soul, mind, and body based on the balance of the sympathetic system. Healing is a process of coordination, cooperation, and integration of body, mind, and spirit.
