- DX FIBRO
I can well imagine! 👍 👐 -deep tissue massage... was amazed at how much of my tension was relieved by this.
I only did it twice in the fibro clinic, but despite my fears that the big lady was scrunching me and my very sensitive skin to pieces, my skin took it well and it was a great relief after.
Reason I didn't do it again was cos I was doing other manual therapy until the 3rd jab made me stop and prefer self-treatment instead.
As you've whet my appetite I've had a quick look on the web, but can't find someone in town anyway who does exactly this. But what comes up is using a massager....
This I usually use for painful spots (mainly tendon insertion points around joints), it's not on my radar for 'just' overstraining (my wife tends to remind me tho). But I need something, cos with my new energy from L D N I've been managing many hours of garden work the past few days and hardly lying down that my back muscles are a bit overstrained. Can't be bothered to lie down and am intrigued if my massager can help, so got it out, going by where it seems to be strained most, so lower back, already feels better, then right shoulder (praps increased from holding it), then lowest back. Not much more than 5' and already good relief.
Right wrist was slightly strained again from holding it, but 1' pressing was enough.
Then (whilst talking to my wife) I did some hanging and whole body twist-stretching (e.g. feet heels to toe, back arched, arms backwards, then one foot twist-stretched behind the other), then combined hanging with that.
And whilst at it my vertigo exercises and a "full" workout (15'' horste stance).
So thanks, you really got me going with that reminder!
