    Massage therapy

    Wondering if anyone here has used massage therapy as part of their general self-care toolkit while tapering. When I was running a lot I went for a trigger point massage every couple of weeks, sometimes just Swedish massage for relaxation. I felt it really helped the blood circulation in the capillaries of my muscles and the trigger point work definitely helped with pain over time. I haven't been able to get back to getting a regular massage as I used to know them, with deep pressure, but I found a masseuse here that I'm going to try only I'll specify less pressure. Even so, I know from experience that, when I haven't been for a long while, I can feel quite ill for 2 - 3 days after the first few treatments. Not necessarily muscle pain though there's some of that but more of a just feeling sick. My hypothesis is that this is from toxins being moved out of the muscle tissues and into the blood and lymph. Anyway I am definitely full of toxic chemicals and I was thinking that maybe the manual manipulation might help spur a bit of neuronal growth and remodeling in the periphery, also. Just thinking here. I have an appointment this Thursday and I know I'll feel sick through Friday, maybe Saturday. To get full benefit I'll have to get a massage once every couple of weeks until I stop feeling sick afterward. That's what previous experience tells me ...
