To begin our session I was asked to stand side on, facing, and then facing away from Grant, so that he could identify what was causing my constant discomfort. Having had a sports massage and been assessed by a chiropractor before I was very impressed by this as no one had ever explained the source of my problem. I will spare you the details but apparently having one leg longer than the other and rounded shoulders isn’t ideal.
Grant began the massage; reassuring me that if the pressure was too deep to let him know, advising and explaining as he went. I really felt that I was in safe hands. All of my questions were answered and I was glad to find out that there were a few simple things which I could do that would collectively correct my problems and improve my posture.
Working closely with fellow therapists he was able to recommend that I visit a podiatrist, osteopath and begin exercising through Pilates to strengthen my core
Feeling positive and grateful that I finally know how to keep the pain at bay, I wondered why I had put it off for so long.
