I had a deep tissue massage yesterday afternoon and it felt amazing, then I soaked in a super warm bath last night – It also felt amazing!
I worked on my super bound calves with my nugget and blaster after I got all my tissue warm and mushy 🙂
My right calf has been hurting for 6 months. Every morning I get up I hobble to the bathroom until it loosens up. So I had watched a couple of videos in the Master group this past weekend and finally had a chance to sit in the tub and see what I could do.
I know many-MANY! of you do not understand the bruising and why would I be happy about this. But really look at those bruises. They are not big black and blue marks like you get when you walk into something. They are a pink color. This is a sign of new blood flow. I have areas – most of all of my legs – that the fascia is so thick and unhealthy that they don’t get proper blood flow. The work I did on my legs only every hurt to a pain level of 2 maybe 4 in some spots – I am not into pain and hurting myself. This is self-care – like eating right and exercise. Going to the chiropractor or massage therapist. Only in this case it is something I can do for myself. The only reason I need help is because I can’t reach some areas, not because it’s not something I don’t understand.
The ones down the outsides of my legs are along the IT band. Again that has always been super tight and I have been working on them forever. All in all I am happy with the progress on my legs. They are taking a long time but progress is being made – so I keep going.
My Daughter In Law is coming over to help me with my back Sunday. I need someone who is not so worried about hurting me as my husband, and she been in the Facebook group for months and has seen the training videos so when I tell her what I need her to do she will understand. Plus, I bought her one for her birthday. She has had one on her own skin and knows what is going on. So while it’s not optimal – she will do better than I can do and will go a bit harder than my hubby would 🙂
