    Has anybody ever tried this? I figure I'll just tell my doctor I'm experiencing soreness and stiffness and deep tissue massages in the past have really helped it. Think it will work? :x: I want some insurance-paid massages.

    Really though i've done a lot for shoulder mobility and my thoracic spine just won't straighten beyond a certain point, which I don't feel is enough. I could use some upper body deep tissue and maybe even chiropractic stuff to loosen it up.

    I've been thinking about trying to do that because I just started looking at craigslist massage listings but i think they are all whores. I want a legit deep tissue not just a tugjob.

    Thats my ultimate goal. And to have insurance pay for it would be the icing on the cake.

    honestly i went on to the therapeutic section of craigslist and thats what motivated this thread :rofl:


    the mobility shit is just an excuse really, I'm sure it'll keep getting better. I just want the massage cause it feels good and is relaxing. I'm cool off massage whores though... I don't think they take insurance, they're dirty, plus they don't know how to actually give massages.

    if anything they'll write you a prescription for massage and send you to physical therapy

    i don't know if private massage places (or places along those lines) even take insurance or prescrips/referrals; it'd be awesome if they did

    exactly. plus there's a lot of practitioners who do deep/swedish combo... that would be nice.

    the really legit ones often do. spas and shit most likely do not.... if I could find anything cheaper than 60/hour I'd just pay for it myself.... but I make 10.50/hour and I'm in college, I can't afford that shit.

    a lot of company benefits up here included massage, no script needed. I used to go every month, right after a hard ass workout which is the best
