I had a deep tissue massage with Mel Denyer on Monday.
I told her which parts of my body hurt and she got stuck in with her elbows, pressing down on the sites of pain to loosen tight muscles .
Thighs, hips, shoulders, elbows and lats.
It was the most excruciating pain I have had to endure.
It is a bit like having the dentist press down on cavity without using an anaesthetic.
At the end of the session she told me that it would hurt the next day.
I said. “Never mind that, it hurts now!”
To which she laughed.
I have a sneaking suspicion she likes her job.
But she is bloody good at it!
