My journey to becoming a myofascial trigger point therapist started 35 years ago as I worked to build my software company. During those days, I was an Olympic sitter, but carried heavy computer equipment regularly. I then began playing golf. Golf became the love of my life. However, I could only play twice a week as it hurt my back even more! I started taking lessons in golf to learn a swing that did not hurt my back and improved my game. My game improved, but my back continued to hurt because I could not consistently use the new swing. To get into the corrected swing, I needed to be more athletic. I then decided to hire a physical trainer. My golf game again improved, and my back and flexibility improved, but I would injure another part of my body training. Now I had a bad back and knees. I then visited the orthopedic surgeon and received physical therapy. A few months of rest and I tried another physical trainer. Time passed and I got stronger and a better golfer, but then again, became injured.
A golfing and business friend suggested that I forgo training and try his massage therapist! Deep tissue massage, by the best CMT in Indianapolis was the prescription. I felt much better. My back pain was gone as I left the spa, but by the time I entered my automobile, I noticed the pain was returning. By the next morning, the pain was back. The massage therapist suggested I considered Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy. Sharon Sauer CMTPT, LMT was offering a weekend introductory course in Louisville at Amber Davies’ school.
Suddenly, everything seemed to make sense. Dakun Nicholls decided to take the entire course, but I was still not convinced. After attending two classes, I decide to enroll and study Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy. During the year of classes, my back, knees and feet became pain free! Now I am totally liberated of pain.
