So super-cool PT appointment in which I had my first dry needle treatment, which I've been looking forward to trying. As she did it, she explained the different types, then what it does, which everyone who's done it already knows but I didn't. She also did manipulation of the muscles around the spine, and we talked about the possibility of scheduling a therapeutic massage. Apparently, we do have them at the downtown and Round Rock clinic and at $65 an hour, that's pretty reasonable, and my insurance and its clinics are very strict on COVID-19 restrictions, so it's very safe.

(At least two or three people in my Flist or DW Circle trained for therapeutic massage and yeah, I expect to pay for the skill and education it takes to do that job and would not feel reassured if it was any lower. Frankly, I would have expected higher and assume part of that is offset by my insurance. I just need to check if my health savings account covers that. If it does, and my first appointment goes well, I need to change my witholdings next year to cover one a few times a year.

I think this is going well. The process is going to be slow and I have to remind myself I'm not going to notice progress much except by absence.

In other news, we're at two episodes of GBBO, and I was going to restrain myself but that so isn't happening I think. Posted at Dreamwidth: https://seperis.dreamwidth.org/1081604.html. | You can reply here or there. | comment count unavailable comments
