There is a line between “good pain” and “bad pain.” True, sometimes the breakup of adhesions can be painful. But I have seen my fair share of clients who absolutely refuse to tell me that they are in agony. The breath quickens, lips tighten, jaws clench, as they wince with pain.
Don’t do it! Let your therapist know if the pressure has crossed the line. We know how to pull back just enough to land in that “good pain” zone, and regular communication is key to effective treatment.
Remember: This is not a contest of pain and austerities!
