A Short Story About Massage Deep Tissue Massage Portland
One early morning in 2008, I was woken up by a phone call from my younger brother, Dan. He told me he needed my help and I could here it in his voice. His back was killing him. He could barely walk. He asked if there was anything I could do, and if he could come over and have me work on him that morning. I said yes and he showed up an hour later.
4 or 5 years before that morning, Dan was at football practice, when he hit a teammate really hard and snapped one of the transverse processes off of his lower lumbar vertebrae. It messed him up pretty bad, but he recovered from it and was currently preparing himself to go through the Air Force bootcamp later that week, when he called me.
Over the years, I had learned breathing techniques that help muscles relax and increase the body’s healing energy, so I told Dan what to do and to keep going until we were done. It was about 45 mins later, still practicing the breathing technique, I had my elbow in the small of his back, when he started laughing, he was cracking up, hysterically. Soon I was laughing just as hard, we continued to practice the breathing technique. Neither of us said a word. ( A side effect of deep breathing is an electric buzzing/tingling feeling across the whole body. It feels good and is usually a surprise for first timers.)
After about 10 more minutes, Dan says, “That was crazy! I feel so good and my back doesn’t hurt at all anymore!” So he sat up, I got him some water and we talked about what just happened and then he set off for home.
Dan made it through bootcamp, a tour in Japan and Afghanistan and is now working towards his M.B.A Marylhurst University.
