I ended up in Bill’s office after 3 1/2 years of daily pain – worn out emotionally, physically, and somewhat financially from all the different modalities I had tried. Finally I was willing to “surrender” and do what he told me to do – I stopped working-out (which I love, and is my job) and started listening to Bill, and my body.
I admit, I was very skeptical and I didn’t believe it when he said, “it’s not supposed to hurt when I press on your muscles.” Everything hurt, I had trigger points all over.
What he did say, which made a great deal of sense to me was – “when you break a bone, it is protected with a cast and you are forced to rest it and let it heal. We (somewhat reluctantly) accept this as effective protocol. However, when we “break a muscle” we don’t cast it, so we often push through without giving muscle the desperate rest and healing time it needs to recover”. By following Bill’s protocol, I have gone from 98% PAIN, to 98% PAIN FREE!
With his guidance, I am now starting back to a gentle exercise routine, and will gradually increase the program back to my usual work-out routine.
For those of you who are in pain, what do you have to lose?
Trigger Point bodywork has worked for me and I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.
Thank you, Bill
