I have decided to add a percussive massager to my work. For some people this can be very helpful to open up the tissues at the beginning of your massage. I have found this helps clients with very tight muscles, clients with fibromyalgia, and clients who cannot tolerate trigger point therapy. It activates your muscles and brings more blood to the area being worked on to begin to heal your body. I only use it for less then 10 mins during a session but so far it has been very helpful and well liked. See video below.

Here's another great blog review on CBD Clinic ointment. I use the number 5 (the strongest one) both personally and with my clients and have had great success in helping people to manage their pain. This is currently only available for sale by Licensed practitioners like myself. Ask me how I can order this for you. (update: I am also now using products from R and R medicinals and this has 1000mg of full Spectrum CBD. My clients love it.)
