At the beginning of the year, I decided to take up a new hobby/ exercise in the form of pole dancing. After seeing a personal trainer for the two years before I thought it would be something new and fun to try and I wouldn’t have any problems with the tricks. I was wrong. After the first week, all my muscles were sore and restricting my ability to continue to practice my newly learnt tricks. Fortunately, for me, Murray who I had been seeing for a year knew about my new training and suggested I give Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) a try. The first night I was a little nervous after finding out this massage requires draining lymph nodes around the breast. Murray explained there are four different options for covering, I am so thankful to Murray for making me feel comfortable throughout this process. I am now pain and bruise free from my pole-dancing, no matter how hard I push my body, and am able to continue practicing all the new tricks I’m learning. I will continue to see Murray for MLD regularly so I can enjoy my experience dancing.
