    Massages


    Anyone else get them on the regular? I don't nearly as much as I want or should, but I have found that they can make a world of difference with recovery and just general health.

    We have a girl that comes to the house every so often and is absolutely amazing. She can tell me imbalances with my lifts by where my tight spots and knots are and what likely caused it. So now I know that I favor my left side and probably point my left knee out a little too much when I come out of the hole on squats.

    One every two weeks! Love them for recovery... I know a masseuse and I get a 30 minute massage for $20 every 2 weeks on my rest day. Its glorious.

    My sports clinic has a masseuse I might start using. They can let her know exactly where to focus, which would be amazing. $50 per half hr not covered by insurance, I can see it getting pricey if I'm tempted to go often.

    So far I've been getting regular TENS unit stim + Graston Technique done, and it's been great. Graston tools are ultra painful but work wonders.

    You can get something done that's very similar (TPI - trigger point injections), but instead of just the needle into the trigger point, they inject a bit of local anesthetic or saline, and may include a corticosteroid. For big knots / extreme tightness. I've yet to try it out but I know someone who swears by them, especially in the groin area/hips.

    Very Interesting, I need to look into these for more info. Shame Im betting each state has a different set of policies governing this.

    You're right, each state does. But the only limitations are that certain states won't allow physical therapists to penetrate the skin, but certain doctors are able to do the procedure instead.

    Massage is a universal cure. I love it for numerous reasons, including those of relaxation, faster recovery, immunity and even improved mood. It's a pity I can't take them on the regular basis, but having a course at least every two-three months absolutely makes a lot of sense to me.
