I went to a new massage therapist.
I often feel like I have something to prove with RMTs because I never want to complain about the pain. I feel like I should just take it – the pain is good, it is releasing something bad right? So, I usually suck it up during the rough patches, because I don’t want to be wussy. (my mother would say “Get some self-esteem, Susan”)
But this new RMT started using elbows on my gluts? Oh, my god that hurt. And strong fingers along my scapula? Wow. How did theose thin little fingers exert so much pressure? It felt bizarrely terrible and good at the same time. I didn’t cry out, I just told her later than that was “sure something”.
