First I lay on my stomach trying my best to relax… and I do. We chat about pandemic life, people, restaurants, etc. All the while she’s “beating me up” with cupping, infrared light, acupuncture, a theragun thing and pressure points.
Then I lay on my back. Mask on. Eyes closed. Tense. She gets me chatting again and stretches me this way and that. Slowly she gets me to relax. She knows I have a love/hate relationship what’s coming next.
“I’m going to adjust you.” My toes wiggle (a trick she’s taught me). “Breath!”
One yank of my neck. CRACK!
“F***ing Awesome!” She says and immediately apologizes for her language. “It’s just we’ve been working on your neck for a year and I’m just so excited and proud to see we’re finally making progress.”
I open my eyes and smile. I couldn’t agree more. It feels bad at first but so, so good and so worth it seconds later. I’m so glad I found Dr. Awesome!
