I have never had a massage before and was curious was it something worthwhile.
My back was in a poor way for many many months and I never did anything about it but recently I'm doing everything I can think of. (stretches, exercises, new pillow, standing with straight posture, computer screen up high).
One thing I am certain of is I probably carry alot of residual stress. I know nothing about it but remember a masseuse showing me and some of my friends the differences in the muscles on peoples necks and backs due to stress.
So I'm thinking now, based on that, from the times that I was stressed the muscles in my back could be in knots, with nothing ever being done about it until recently(my stretches).
I do remember the muscles in my back tightening up to incredible levels before. Last time would be a few months back.
Should I get a massage? Are these knots still there? Must it be a deep tissue massage or does it matter. Should someone go twice or 4 times or more?
As I said I know nothing so want to know is getting a massage for this worth my time or would it just be a waste?
These other massages just seem wishy washy(swedish) or too much(like the thai with its stretching out limbs).
