    chiro, osteopath, been there done that, and could probably do with osteo again, but muscles are tense all over body and think what i need at the moment is a massage. anyone had one? is that what they are designed to do – relax muscles etc? and how much do they charge?  :-\ thanks.  🙂

    I’ve had a few… before I truied the osteo – they are nice… but the Osteo actually fixed the problem for me – whereas the massage was temporary…

    If you get a deep tissue one / sweedish thing it is good – is hard to find people that are good tho – some aren’t…

    cost – depends where you are – think I paid £25 for an hour last time….  :-\  expect you can get cheaper…

    I neede osteo actually – fell off horse on sat – oops!

    thanks widget – think i need both but the massage will be a one off and the osteo would be an ongoing cost. i think it would probably help just if the muscles didn’t hurt all the time.  8)

    Book a massage soon then!  :yes:

    A massage ias certainly less brutal… although you could try Thai Massage? Have heard that is good?  Maybe worth looking into?

    what’s the difference between all these different types of massage?  :confused: i thought a massage was just a massage.

    no – all use different techniques…

    Thai is sort of like a massage/ yoga combo…

    your muscles hurt because you’re holding your emotion in.

    i would forget the massage – i freaked and hated every second when i had one.

    do some relaxation, progressive relaxation and / or creative visualisation.  i would definately reccommend learning how to self hypnotise.

    I have had various massages including indian head massage.

    Very therapeutic and relaxing although can be less than comfortable at the time in spots.

    Go for one that is accredited.

    i can’t relax or visualise. wouldn’t have a clue where to begin. am sure i haven’t relaxed for years.  😀

    and the word hypnosis terrifies me.  :scared:

    watch it googling for massage love !!

    honestly terry – no massage person will un-knot stress aches for long. 

    you need to treat the problem love.

    treating the problem is beyond my ability. temporary relief would be something.  🙂

    I go to a ……..  :-[ Not know the english words. He a doctor in physical healing e.m.g. Investigates and treat joints, muscular affections and tendons(?), nervedamage, and spinal affections.  Does electromyografic, infiltrations, manual healing, radial shock wavetherapie.
    He does stuff to you, makes you feel tenced muscles you never even knew you had in the first place  ::) . Injects with herbalstuff, cortisone or ‘something’gel, depending on what you need. Sounds weird, didn’t think much of it the first time i went. But been there in januarie. Once. Works wonders.
    Not got something like that overthere where you are? Massages work fine, on the moment that you are getting one. But you have to get them regularly for maintenance’-.
