Oh how so easily I bruise nowadays.

🤦🏼‍♀️ 🤦🏼‍♀️ 🤦🏼‍♀️

This is from my deep tissue massage on Saturday. #nopainnogain that’s for sure.

This is two of them, which there are a few more.

My muscles in these areas are locked and don’t want to let go so it’s been a process trying to ease them – after so many surgeries, trauma, stress, etc my muscles have just tensed up so bad they seem to have permanently stayed that way.

I seem to also store stress in my muscles. I guess it’s just one way I have learned to cope with the stress over the years.

How do you cope with stress?

Every few weeks we repeat the massage. It hurts like a mf’r but seems this is the only way it will ease. Each session we see some progress then it will tighten back up a little less each time.

Hell there was several spots on my back that I honestly thought were bone. When I started getting these deep tissue massages it hurt something terrible.

I asked “isn’t that a bone?”

He replied, “no, it’s a muscle.”

Well kiss my ass…. I thought it was supposed to be that way. 🤪🤪

If you ever get a chance to try it I highly recommend it. I have incorporated it into my overall health care. I just wish insurance companies would add this to some of their alternative care options.

Oh well… can’t have everything.

Have a good day y’all!
