Racer:

I've felt like I wanted to respond to this subject but I wasn't sure what to say exactly. I have a hard time with the idea of massage. My alt.med. doc has wanted me to have deep tissue (fas...? [don't know word])massage, but I've always been terrified of letting someone else touch me now. I actually haven't gone back to her in over two months, cause I'm afraid she'll ask if she can work on me again.

Anyways, I've heard that massage therapy is also used as a treatment for ED's too -- that it helps you own and accept your body more. I don't know anyone personally who's done it though.

I'm really interested in hearing what you experience is like. My T now also says that being touched has physiological effects. Is it endorphins? (is that the right word?) I'd better stop, I'm getting in over my head, and probably confusing terms.

Are you scared at all?
