This rating chart, per my estimation is too limiting. Akemi has hit "it" out of the universe when it comes to her professional expertise as it relates to my crazy facia, or however you spell it. After my first deep tissue massage, I was floating on air, so relaxed. After my second deep tissue massage, last Tuesday, I was relaxed afterward and my back did not again tighten-up until 4 am. After my massage on this last Thursday, at 9 am til 10:30 am, I have been pain-free all and with just minimal stiffness since 10:30 am until 11:21 pm the next day, on Friday. I know that I have found my License Massage Therapist of choice. I am finally experiencing pain relief from this unknown problem I have been experiencing for the last three weeks.
