I love these self-care tips to help YOU and clients reduce pain. Last week when I was giving 5 massages, I must have had poor body mechanics on my last 2 clients that were super tight in the hips, glutes & IT bands. It took me getting my body into odd positions when them on table to get the right angle to be able to give them what they needed but at my own body’s expense. That night my ankle and foot hurt. The next day during my weight training program it was time for me to do lunges in a stepping back (better for the knee) variation. Ouch!!! I couldn’t do it so had to bypass that one. I did a few of these below action items and also blading & cupping (yes, I keep in my gym bag) but I didn’t get immediate results. When I got home and before bed that day, I also had to get the ball on my hip and glute and really stretch it for 2-3 minutes on the leg that the knee was hurting as I would feel it was tight and might also be the culprit. I’m happy to report that during a 4 mile run just 2 days later I was able to stop and get in 3 sets of lunges with NO PAIN. Yay!!!
