When my boss suggested that I look into sports massage therapy in Kent, I honestly did not know what to think. By no means was I an athlete or even a casual participant in any type of sports. My idea of working out was a walk to the ice cream parlor, and my idea of physical activity was walking to the pool so I could get a tan. She saw the look on my face and laughed, realizing what I was thinking. She told me that I did not have to be active in sports to partake in sports massage therapy.
She explained that she goes to a particular massage therapist who specializes in sports tissue massages even though she does not participate in sports either. Her husband does though, and he is the one who told her about this massage therapist. Because she was in chronic pain daily, her husband had asked his massage therapist if he would see her too. He has a background in working at chiropractic clinics too, so he has seen a wide variety of issues involving chronic pain. Since she started seeing him, her pain level has dropped drastically. While she still has her days where the pain is prominent, they are few and far between now rather than a daily occurrence.
She knew that I was struggling with pain issues of my own, and she thought that I might have the same luck that she experienced with it. I decided that it was definitely worth a shot because I remembered not too long ago how she would have to leave work early now and again because of pain. After my first week of getting a deep tissue massage, I could actually feel the pain levels dropping off daily. I am so glad my boss recommended this because it is literally changing my life.
