Recently had a back massage on a spa day and now my pain is horrific Seems to...
Ugh I hate massages. I am so sensitive it's really painful.
What type of massage? Light pressure? Deep tissue? Was their stretching?
It was medium pressure. Just a back massage which came with my spa package. It felt OK at the time but over the past few days the pain has crept up on me :( no stretching at all c
Was it an hour
Erm it was about 30 mins
Ok. If you don't get regular massage, the pressure needs to be light and not concentrated in one area. Things may feel good while it is happening like if they are digging a lil around the scapulas or neck but, with this, you have to be very careful. I didn't realize as a therapist just how massage can effect things like this or fibro until I got them. I was a long time - ten plus years - getting deep work. When this started, i found that i had to really lighten the pressure. I struggle cause deep work feels amazing to me while getting it done but, not afterwards. However, I can tell you, I feel my best when I get weekly massage. I just adjust to light pressure, some light raking over my ribs to move fluid and stuff and it helps greatly.
I haven't had a back since I got costo, daren't
