To tell you the truth it ‘aint what you do, it’s the way that you do it’, It is important to ask your therapist if they can combine different treatment approaches for different clients, or the same client at different points in their pain cycle or are they just a one trick pony? Sometimes you need deep therapeutic work and other times very light touch. I know as a client myself that I need something different every treatment I have. (Which is every 2 weeks, by the way!) More importantly I think, is to ask, how often does your Therapist have a treatment? I am constantly amazed, certainly here in the UK, when asking that question, that the therapist often admits to ‘not as often as they would like’ to ‘never’! So if they never feel it, how can they have any idea how you feel on that table or how good this stuff is? Come on, do you ever see a hairdresser with a birds-nest hairdo, beautician with bad skin, or a nail technician with chipped nails? This is serious stuff, so please leave Massage Therapy to those few serious solely dedicated professionals, who can bring it the professional courtesy it so obviously deserves.
With today’s stressful lifestyle, more and more people are turning to massage to relieve their tensions, aches and pains. A really good, professional massage by a solely dedicated Massage Therapist can solve a surprising number of your problems. The daily clinical experience of professional massage therapists, physical therapists and doctors strongly indicates that most of our common aches and pains are caused by Trigger Points. Before you book your treatment ask your therapists if they have been trained in, understand and have experience in Trigger Point therapy. An extremely high percentage of therapists are still out of the loop regarding Trigger points.
Problems such as stress, lack of energy, repetitive strain injury, sleeplessness, back pain, shoulder pain,temporary loss of strength from hard physical or mental work, cellulite, headache, migraine, back ache, tummy ache and in fact, most aches and pains anywhere in the body.
Massage Therapy does more than just get rid of pain. It can make you feel better in minutes, rather than days, weeks or months. No Hands® Massage Therapy goes even further and a whole lot deeper than that……..
