    I could really do with one of those for my back and hips. I wonder if they offer those kinds of massages in Glasgow? (I mean, I’m sure they do I just don’t know where.)

    I hope your knee is feeling better!

      I’m sure they do. Check chiropractic type places. It’s the kind of massage that is more medical based and not like a “Spa” massage.

    I’m a huge fan of that type of massage–I truly believe it makes a WORLD of difference. I hope it helps you–and it’s at least worth giving a try! 🙂

      That’s good to hear! I’m glad it makes a big difference. I am willing to give it a whole-hearted try.

    Never had an orthopedic massage, but I’m a total fan of massages, especially when my muscles are sore. When my husband has had long weeks of running, and his leg muscles are tight, a massage is the only thing that will help get that tension out, so once in a while I’ll give him a deep tissues massage. Very beneficial!

    that sounds AWESOME!!! yet painful at times 😛 I’ve never had a concentrated massage like that before. I think I’d laugh if someone used their elbow on my butt though… 1. because I’m immature and uncomfortable with someone massaging my butt and 2. because I would think it’d actually tickle a little… but glad it worked for you and I hope with consistent visits you see long term affects!

      I’m so used to getting massages that I don’t feel uncomfortable. I just want them to FIX me!!! 😉

    I’ve never heard of that kind of massage and except a casual one from a friend or bf, I’ve never had one at all. That dinner looks so good! I still haven;t tried scallops. 🙁 Need to fix that!

      If you like seafood, definitely try scallops!

    I’m a licensed massage therapist and incorporate therapeutic techniques into my sessions. I’ve found that once people experience relief from some trigger point work along with myofascial release they are more aware of their own bodies. Thanks for supporting those of us in the “complimentary/alternative” field – hope you’re follow up sessions are positive experiences. PS – been following your blog for a about a year and enjoy reading your posts. Congrats on your weight loss success – thanks for inspiring many of us followers!

      Thanks for commenting LJ! I appreciate the viewpoint from someone in the know. I really do hope that this type of massage helps. I felt amazing pain and release when the therapist was working on my knots. It was crazy. It gave me hope that maybe I can fix it!

    That type of massage can really do wonders for you over the long term. I went to a rolfer for a while due to chronic back pain, and damn! That girl was strong! I got the ‘ol elbow in the butt as well — not pleasant.

    But after an hour of agony you walk away feeling like a million bucks.

      Did Rolfing work for you? I’d never heard of it before a week ago when my boyfriend mentioned he wanted to try it. He has scoliosis that causes his back pain to flare up at times. It sounds like it might be something that works well for that.

      1. Trevor

        I went for the full 10 sessions and it did help quite a bit. It’s not cheap though. I think 10 sessions is enough for most minor ailments, but for more severe issues I think longer term treatment would be more effective. If I had the cash I’d still be doing it.

        He might also want to look into ART (active release technique). A lot of chiropractors practice that these days.

          I will pass that info on. Thanks!

          As for the ortho massage, I will do it 12 times (that’s what my insurance will pay) and then I’ll have to figure something else out. I can’t afford paying full price for it all the time, either.
