Massage and Supps
I've been really busy working on my house so I haven't really looked into it.
I'm getting a massage tomorrow night, my first massage in a long time. Anyway I'm thinking about taking something like Hemavol or Potassium Nitrate before the massage. Mainly to increase blood flow. I'm looking for opinions on if this will increase the benefits of the massage or am I nuts for thinking this.

how about a couple glasses of wine prior to your ar*****. not only will it relax you but it may thin your flow out a little.

I wouldn't take either. When you get a deep tissue massage your muscles need to be relaxed to get the full benefit of the massage.

If you live in an area where it gets cold enough. I bought a plastic tank that I can fit in, screwed a thermometer to the inside and I fill it up with water. You want it to be between 65-55degrees, no colder.... When it is not cold enough outside then I buy 4 (8lb)bags of ice, pour them into my bath, then fill it up with cold water. You don't want to stay in the bath longer than 15mins. After about 2 mins you go completely numb and you no longer feel the cold.
DON'T ADD EPSON SALT TO THE ICE BATH. I did this once for foot ice bath and i almost got frost bite.... My foot was all purple and bruised...
Also you can buy 8lb bags of ice from most McDonalds for only $1

Though, I believe it was found that an ice pack to the upper back is nearly as effective.

I usually just down a few grams of beta alanine and chug tons of water before and after. The BA tingles feel amazing during the rubdown.
Nerve lesion? Couldn't it just be the result of a lot of adhesions?
