I have had clients who were experiencing severe body back pain, specifically on the upper trapezius area. Their doctors prescribed them muscle relaxants and pain killers prior to seeing me.
The medications did not cure their back aches. After receiving therapy for an hour from me, my clients felt instant relief from chronic back pain discomfort.
I provide several techniques that would allow the connective tissue to adjust to the applied pressure , increasing enough heat to create a thixotropic* effect that will have long lasting benefits.
*Thixotropy means that when the ground substance is submitted to heat, pressure, and movement, it becomes dramatically more fluid. Fluid ground substance allows more efficient exchange of materials between cells. Massage can increase metabolism in connective tissues, especially if used regularly.
Most client won’t have to take prescription pain killers and muscle relaxants.
Part of receiving a therapeutic massage and body work from me is the stretch therapy that I include.
I teach clients on how to stretch their own body and on how to use roller foam and balls to prevent future recurrence of their muscle pain.
