Today I tried for a second time Myofascial release. It went fairly well. I was very, very lucky that she agreed to come to my home in order to do it. That meant that I didn’t have to go through the car ride again and be hurt by that whole process. That was also really nice because there has been a ton of construction around my apartment building as of late and that just makes the drive that much longer.
So she came to my house and was very professional. She washed her hands before we got started and she asked me how I was doing. I was very impressed that she remembered that I wanted to take things slow. I didn’t have to remind her. That also make me feel good that she had reviewed my chart before she came. I have felt so often that other practitioners aren’t prepared for my appointments and need to be reminded what my case/situation is all about.
She did much firmer pressure on the trigger point release this time and she stated she felt that I was loosening up. That was wonderful news. She also did some passive range of motion in order to help with blood flow. That was okay. She went very slowly, which was nice. When she asked if I felt pain, I felt comfortable enough telling her when I actually did have pain.
All-in-all, I would say that I had a positive experience from it. I would say, if anything, it is teaching me how to relax, and how to trust my body again. If she decides to continue doing it, I would be agreeable to continuing.
