Massage: It’s not just for relaxation any more.


You know how I’ve often mentioned you need to do tennis ball/foam roll massages (self-myofascial release) to keep yourself in peak condition and pain free?


Well I meant to. (Actually, I did here and here. I don’t mind if you don’t remember. You’ve got a life and all.)

Anyway, if you want to see the power of massage in action, check out these two videos. They are both of men with dislocated shoulders. The doctor fixes them simply by massaging their shoulder and arm. It’s pretty cool  – especially if you’ve ever had to have your shoulder un-dislocated via the “tug and twist” method.

Imagine how much better your random aches and pains would be if you did the same.
