Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 8

Day 8 Feeling good today. Overall, the burning in my foot and lower leg is less and there aren’t any new stabbing pains. Vanessa worked on my foot today. She tried several of the different textures on my foot. A really soft silicon basting brush caused all kinds of weird tingles, twitches and burning. I […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 7

Day 7 – Daily Massage Headache and neck stiffness again today, tired.  Feeling more in my foot and lower leg than a week ago. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a week. Lots of pain and lots of massage. The changes in my every-day and the amount of pressure required to feel pain […]

Day 5 Today I see Anna again. Oh joy, this is fun and we’re having it. She caused me more intentional pain yesterday than I’ve had since childbirth and abscessed teeth. And I volunteered for those in only a distant way. The good news: my lower leg is burning but not as much as before […]

Daily Massage – Dee’s Journey Day 3

Daily Massage for Health Day 3 Another day of improvement. Though yesterday’s massage was not comfortable (to say the least), it wasn’t as painful as the day before (it’s me – not Vanessa). Though the burning spread and became more intense during her work, it dissipated quickly and I had less burning than the day […]

Dee’s first entry of her daily massage for health journey Hi everyone.  Feeling good today.  Slept well and looking forward to the massage experiment.

Daily Massage – Dee’s Story

Hi, I’m Dee. I’ve been asked to get frequent massages and report on how they affect my functioning; in particular, if the massages have any effect on my neuropathic pain.
