Why does Bodywork Hurt?

Posted on 30 Oct 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I often ask my clients to try and change the way they experience┬ápain in their body during their bodywork sessions. Instead of it being something to run away from or stop right away I ask them to just think of it as a sensation – not good or bad but something to be felt, breathed into and released.

In this video Thomas Myers from Anatomy Trains breaks down why massage (myofascial release therapy), exercise or any forms of structural integration therapy hurts. He gives some amazing insight on pain in general and why your perception of it might have more to do with that sensation.
