Massage doesn't have to hurt but it may

I come from a 20 year career as an accountant.  I know the pain of sitting 12 hours a day.  I know the feeling of being stressed out all the time; I learned the hard way about the tolls this takes on your body.  Diagnosed with Sciatica and told; "you will never sit more than 6 hours a day again", I decided to become a massage therapist.

I come from a 20 year career as an accountant.  I know the pain of sitting 12 hours a day.  I know the feeling of being stressed out all the time; I learned the hard way about the tolls this takes on your body.  Diagnosed with Sciatica and told; "you will never sit more than 6 hours a day again", I decided to become a massage therapist. I took a class in 2012 on Lymphatic drainage massage and went back to the same school to complete my training.  I learned how to help my sciatica when it acts up and how to prevent it from acting up.  I use Qi Gong to help stretch and even teach it to my clients.  I do lymphatic massage and even when doing a relaxation massage or a "get the kinks out" massage I stay in the progression of  lymph drainage.  What is lymph drainage?  Glad you asked.  It is a light touch massage that is there to move fluid through the body.  As we age we start noticing things may swell a little or as we stress, our immune system may not be what it should.  Lymph drainage massage helps in all of this.  I do a relaxation massage (basically lymph drainage with pressure).  I do sports massage, being an athlete in school I know about those injuries.  Being a cross fit person at one time; I know about those muscle tear down and build ups, going to the gym 4 times a week I know about those sore achy muscles.  I have to admit that sometimes massage hurts.  Especially if that muscle is stubborn or frozen.  I will let you know up front if you are looking for medical massage or deep tissue massage this will hurt and it will hurt for a few days.  I tell my clients I can get it out but you will call me every name in the book for the next 2 days but on the 3rd day you will take it all back and love the feeling of being free.  I love to breathe and I ask my clients to breathe.  Not like that I mean BRRREEEAAATTTHHHEEE.
