I can tell if a person eats clean and drinks plenty of water. When my hands meet the client’s skin, I feel. Healthy tissue feels good to the touch. More malleable, glides better. This is yet another testament for the healing power of food and hydration. Your muscles need to breathe. That’s the bottom line. Coagulated tissue suffocates muscles. Blood can’t flow through this tissue nor can the muscles breathe. My massage cleans pathways, manipulating the tissue so that this can happen. Drink water, eat well, get a massage.
