So my adult daughter also has painful myofascial patterns, we have each worked with tennis balls and rollars, and theracane for six months. We have now added getting together to help each other with the body work for difficult to reach areas. It is fascinating, I know where her "baby knots" are and she can feel the monsters that they can become. Probably not for everyone, I am a nurse and trained and did massage more than twenty years ago. She is a black belt with excellent body awareness. But body work is intense and now I am pushing fluids and staying warm!
