Question: I am studying a Swedish massage course and am required to produce an essay on RSI and massage. Does anyone have any sources of information or personal experience that I might use for this?
Answer: I would visit your nearest medical library and read books on ‘Myofacial Pain’ and ‘Trigger Point Release Therapy’. These describe techniques for ‘releasing’ myofascial trigger points with deep tissue massage and are particularly relevant to RSI. If you do not have access to a medical library I would try “Are you sitting comfortably” which is about back pain and RSI. An another excellent read!
