His name is Patrick – he does massage in a home studio just west of Ashland and Wellington.
And this is real massage – not some euphemism like ‘bodywork’ or ‘sexual surrogate’.
Patrick is the guy that took me through the ten-session sequence called Structural Therpay (same basis as Rolfing) about 2 1/2 years ago. I remember mom and dad visiting soon after I complete the program and they said that I hadn’t looked that relaxed in years. I didn’t stick with it – getting tune-ups so I’m back on the table. And I’m lovin’ it.
This is deep tissue that is beyond deep. Most of the problems with my joints and muscles right now revolve around a too-tight right psoas muscle that wraps around to my back and pulls my shoulder out of joint as well as flipping my right hip out – impacting my ankle and hip. Plus, my sister suspects that my abductor and adductor weight training would eventually screw up my right knee cap – which had started to have a dull ache. I’m a mess. It’s always amazing how deep his hands can get into my abdominal wall. And it hurts like hell. But it’s wonderful. I was actually giggling on the way home because it felt so good to have all of that tension pushed out of me.
If you want a fantastic massage in Chicago shoot me an email and I can give you Patricks’ contact info. If you are looking for a massage in Nashville I can send you to my sister. She’s got hands of steel.
