I will have to ask about that at the massage college that I go to for my hot stone massages. I just got another one Thursday.. She asked if I wanted myofacial and reflexology,, of course I did! I was not aware of the lateral massage(lying on our side) but will ask about that next week.
My insurance does not cover them, BUT this college uses senior students, ready to graduate, I have been fortunate enough to have the ones who are also halfway through their major in PT and PTA! Also, I could never afford a spa or even the hospital, but they charge $20 for a one hour hot stone massage, $30 for a1 1/2 hour.
Since I stopped some other meds, I consider this just that: a medicine to release that lactic acid and regain a bit of movement.
the perk of this is you must drink at least a gallon of water following the massage to flush the toxins out of your system, so you get your required Spark fluids too!
I returned to work after three months of no movement Monday, so my body was in agony, but after two massages, I am feeling about 80% better.
We may not always get what we WANT, but we will always get what we NEED!
