i went to this massage class yesterday where we learned about various muscle groups in the arm and how to best massage the arm. it was kind of interesting but there was this one poor woman who went who didn’t have a very good experience. she already had carpal tunnel syndrome and then when her partner came to massage her, she was howling in pain. he apparently aggravated something that was already bad.
it makes me wonder though why people who have such conditions won’t be more careful about these things. why would you let an untrained person apply pressure to your arms when your arms are already in pain? why?
