I haven't had massage therapy specifically for help with trauma, but I've certainly combined massage with therapy. I've found that it just makes me feel bad. What might work is massage *before* therapy, but I've never managed that. I tend to go afterwards, and then I waste the whole massage feeling bad about the stuff that came up in session. It doesn't feel like it helps me release any of the stuff.

What is the theory behind your T's recommendation? That you're storing the trauma in parts of your body? I think that massage work in that case could be hard, as it releases what you've been holding. Or maybe it'd be fantastic. What do I know.

If you do it, let us know how it goes.
