Ask A Licensed Massage Therapist

As a novelty, I thought I'd try posting some actual content on this journal. Considering the last thing I posted was, uh, four years ago, any content at all ought to qualify as pretty darn novel.

At any rate: to start off, let us have a rousing round of Ask A Licensed Massage Therapist! Got any burning questions about massage therapy, bodywork, or related fields? I will try to answer all comments here promptly, even if the answer is "Iunno, let me look that up and get back to you."

Not a professional, but still interested in being able to provide good massage as a tension relief and/or foreplay element. Are there any particular medical concerns I should be aware of, ways to truly mess up one's partner?

General advice on Good Things to Do wouldn't be amiss, either, but the Bad Stuff To Avoid is what I don't know.

Oooh, question time!

  1. Especially good or poor times to get a massage? (E.g., if you are feeling ill and achy, would a massage help or would it just hurt more/infect your massage therapist and be really rude?)

  2. Can you talk about energy work? It sounds to the amateur like crazy hippie woo-woo, but it...works. HOW DOES IT WORK? WHAT IS GOING ONNNNN?

  3. What the hell is mysofascial release?
