My first experience with massage therapy was about 15 years ago. I was in my doctor's office with Torticollis and I was in pain.Cervical dystonia, also called spasmodic torticollis, is a painful condition in which your neck muscles contract involuntarily, causing your head to twist or turn to one side. My doctor suggested muscle relaxers and physical therapy. My initial thought was ughhhh. Then we talked candidly and she listened closely. She said I understand you don't like pills so have you thought about massage therapy? I thought like everyone else-how can I afford this, will it work, isn't it just for pampering?My first experience was a life-long wellness choice. I went for several sessions weekly and was on my way to pain-free living. I saw the outcome and felt it first hand. I was amazed at not only the therapist but at the techniques and my participation in my overall health care regimen.This one experience has lead me to my purpose. I knew that I wanted to help clients with massage therapy. Talking to your Physician about Massage Therapy 1. Don't be afraid to talk to your doctor 2.
