Suspend disbelief, this works.
25 years of intense, competitive sports has given me the back of an osteo/chiro’s bank balance dream. I knew the back pain I was going to suffer from spending 10 hours a day in the saddle was going to be more painful than anything going on in my legs and lungs climbing the mountains and came prepared with some heavy duty perscription drugs.
True to form, by end of day 2 of the tour, my back was seizing up. In a way that had only been effectively treated with a few weeks of rest and regular visits to my chiro. But just 15 mins of a session from Rui and it had cleared. More surprisingly, it didnt cramp up again during the following day. Just one more 15 min top up from Michael later in the week was all it needed to keep the rest of the tour pain free (well, for my back).
Incredible. Thank you both!
