On the recommendation of my buddy, I visited a new remedial masseure this afternoon, who sprecialises in the “emmett technique”. Im doing all I can to recover from a groin muscle strain.
An interesting experience, the witch doctor spent the first 20 minutes just walking around the table and occasionally resting a finger on me on particular positions, such as lower abs, hip flexors, shouler blades etc. I assume he was watching how my body moves as I breath?
The next 15 minutes he spent doing what I can only describe as muscle manipulations with his fingers. With his fingers at particular muscle insertion points he would quicly strike his fingers across the area. Almost like an chiropractic adjustment, but for the muscles.
And that was it. The whole experience was a bit weird and irky. There were moments of total silence where he would just look at me lying on the table. He now wants to see me next week for a deep tissue massage.
Anyone have any idea if this is going to work? Anyone have any similiar expriences?
