Joseph Carringer is a professional didgeridoo musician and sound therapist. In his sound therapy practice he uses concert class didgeridoos, combining Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian and organ theory with Ayurvedic Chakra philosophies creating a unique and powerful therapeutic sound, music and healing experience. Joseph has been playing an Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo for over 15 years, using it as a deep meditative tool in his personal shamanic journey as well as a therapeutic instrument for music and healing for his clients.

Joseph presents and performs both nationally and internationally on mind/body connection and the effects of didgeridoo sound therapy for the purposes of clearing energetic and emotional stagnation within the energetic body to wellness and healthy life style seekers, as well as to medical and holistic professionals.
After doing extensive research, Joseph opened his harmonic therapy practice to the New England Seacoast communities in January of 2004. Since the fall of 2005, Joseph has offered yearly classes for the Maine Medical CAM programs and the University of Southern Maine’s CAM programs, and presents at the University of New Hampshire and New England College.

He was also a guest speaker at John’s Chakra-Healing class at Kripalu Center for Yoga presenting his Didgeridoo Chakra Clearing Workshop.
Joseph began working with music and healing with the didgeridoo in 1997 with blues and jazz acts and later moved on to playing live breath percussion to electronic dance music with DJs. Currently he is performing and producing music with Josh Harris (major label remix producer and former music director/keyboardist for Seal) in a club/world fusion electronica group called Table Syndicate.
It is Joseph’s goal to help people realign their bodies’ natural rhythms on a cellular level through harmonic therapy. He believes that through this work, people can achieve a greater sense of natural health and open doors for a higher sense of creativity and consciousness. He feels a deep natural connection with the healing of our planet and ourselves and has a variety of CD’s for sale.

Research Reports Massage is Effective for Low Back Pain

Friday, July 15th, 2011


Research reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine last week concluded that massage therapy helps ease chronic low back pain and improves functioning. In the study 400 subjects in the Group Health Cooperative who had non-specific low back pain for at least 3 months were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups. These were structural massage, relaxation massage or usual care (what they would have received routinely that was usually medications). The massage groups were given an hour long massage weekly for 10 weeks.
After 10 weeks , over 1/3 of the subjects who received either type of massage said their back pain was better or gone. This compared to 1 in 25 of the controls who reported their back pain was better or gone. In addition, at ten weeks nearly twice as many massage patients as the controls on usual treatment reported functioning significantly better than at the beginning of the treatment program. They reported fewer days in bed, were more active, and used fewer anti-inflammatory medications than the group of usual care.

His wife had also developed blunt trauma arthritis and this was another motivating force in finding an arthritis pain reliever because he did not want her to suffer as he had. This resulted in the ARTHRI-ZEN RELIEF productline that includes variants with Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM in various combinations to provide enhanced tissue function and to repair molecules.
