Don’t Wait For Pain!

I have a new client who has been coming almost weekly to alleviate some back pain that he has been experiencing. He said, “My back doesn’t hurt anymore. Maybe I shouldn’t come in as often.” I said, “Well, you don’t want to wait until you hurt to come in!”. So much of what I and my massage colleagues do is help PREVENT pain from being a PROBLEM. Pain is an indication that your body is unhappy and needs you to stop what you are doing and heal. Of course, there can be pain when you exercise or do some new activity that you haven’t done in awhile because you are.

And what I mean by less does not mean doing nothing, but to approach the body in a more gentle, softer way. In 2014, I took an amazing class called Wilderness Basics offered through the Sierra Club. I went on 3 overnight hiking/camping adventures around the San Diego area. It was an incredible experience and.

How often should you get massage?

Lately I’ve been getting A LOT of massage…at least twice as much as I normally do.  I am recovering from a bad muscle strain and the extra massage I have been receiving is part of getting me out of pain and back to 100%.  Under normal circumstances with the amount of stress and muscle aches I experience, getting a 90 minute massage every two or three weeks helps me maintain my health and well-being. Since April, I have been getting massage almost every week and sometimes 2 or 3 times a week depending on the opportunity.  I also get one or two chiropractic adjustments a week, I stretch daily, and.
