Went to get a remedial massage yesterday and it was fantastic. Can’t praise it enough! I’m not completely back to normal but at least 80% better than before.
I got a lot of trigger point therapy, where they find knots in your muscles then press it really hard for about 30 seconds to promote blood flow into the muscle and loosen up the knots. I have a pretty high pain threshold for these sorts of things so the poor girl had the press really hard and hold the pressure for quite some time before the pain starts to subside.
I’ve still got heaps of knotted muscles, but there’s only so much the body can take before it needs a rest. My next appointment is right before Christmas, I’m already looking forward to it.
