I was a serious tennis player and overall active athlete until I began to have lower back issues 10 years ago at 50 years old. My lower back was always stiff and sore and would regularly spasm with any twisting or bending motion. I stopped playing tennis and I started chiropractic care at that point and continued that treatment regularly over the last 10 years. Despite that treatment, I would have 3 or 4 lower back spasm attacks each year when I tried to do something active.
In May 2019, I had another back spasm that put me down for some time, and, in my total frustration, I decided that I had to do something drastically different. I started researching massage therapists that evening in the DFW area and found Christy. After reading about her background and qualifications, I decided to give her a call that evening – what could I lose as nothing else was working. Christy returned my call that evening and spoke with me on the phone for close to an hour about the details of my back issues probing me for as much detail as possible. I was surprised that someone would be that interested in my specific back problems, but after that discussion, I knew I needed to go see her.
Within 3 days of that phone discussion, I was in Christy’s office for my initial consultation and massage therapy session – almost 2 hours of intense work. This is not your normal massage. It was like nothing I had experienced before – a combination of massage therapy, stretching, and breathing. Christy also instructed me on several therapy and stretching activities to do daily on my own. Then she actually followed up with me the next morning on a Saturday to ask how I felt and how I was doing! Christy promised that she would have me back on the tennis court in 6 months if I was serious about it.
I now have had numerous sessions with Christy spaced about 3 weeks apart and my lower back has been doing much better. I have not had any lower back spasms this summer and the daily soreness has gone away most of the time. I actually started swinging the tennis racket again, even hitting some balls on the practice court. Each session from Christy is unique in its own way and tailored to your specific issue. She is extremely knowledgeable, has a great personality, and truly works hard to deliver results that make a difference in your life. I would highly recommend Christy!
