affordable treatment for chronic pain

I've only been aware of your website for 2 days now, but it's something I've been looking for for a long time. After getting a massage about 6 months ago I learned from my massage therapist where my "spots" were (mainly upper back, trapezius, rhomboids). She explained how to release these areas on my own with a racquet ball and foam roller. I have since been doing my own myofascial release without even realizing it. I found it meditative and addictive and it made me self-aware of my painful areas and what stressful emotional situations in my life have been triggering them. After 6 months of foam rolling I feel so much healthier and happier and I don't have to bother my boyfriend for massages anymore! :)

Now that I found your website and clicked on hyperlink after hyperlink, I've found what I've been looking for to help others. I am a medical provider that has been struggling learning how to educate patients on causes of chronic pain. We know that those with difficult backgrounds, a history of emotional/physical abuse, poverty, etc are much more prone to chronic physical "functional" pain. I have never figured out a good way to explain this to people, and I have also never had an AFFORDABLE treatment for them. Massage therapy and acupuncture are not covered by Medicare/Medicaid. So now that I've found this website I'm going to continue expanding my own foam rolling and will incorporate your teachings into my practice to help others.

So thank you.

Thank-you so much for taking the time to reward me and my efforts with your lovely comments! I am so happy that you have discovered foam rolling and myofascial release to be as healing as I have! There are many more of us that are in this camp, adding to the healing numbers, each and every day!

And yes, foam rolling is often referred to as the "Poor Man's Massage" but it's effects, for something so amazingly simple, is so incredibly healing.

If only everyone knew of this! So, share the Healing Love!

Namaste to you, my health care companion!
