Question Airrosti

Has anyone here tried Airrosti in order to treat injuries?

I have been having some issues with my left shoulder and my left hamstring. Hamstring from running too much and shoulder from too many pull-ups/kips. A CF trainer that I know has done this and has great things to say about it. I'm going to try it out but wanted to hear other peoples thoughts on this.

It's a DEEP tissue massage treatment from what I understand. Supposed to be painful but very effective.

Here is the website on the treatment:

Hmm... Just noticed that myself.

What about rolfing? Seems like the techniques may be similar?

Re: Airrosti

I've found several threads on rolfing... Sounds like some good stuff from what other CFers have said.

It does sound painful though... I wonder if anyone has had a bad experience with this? I've only seen positives about this treatment...

Also, my insurance company lists this as an alternative treatment for sports injuries and I think they may even do a partial coverage!!!

I have had both rolfing and Hellerwork. Both are work on the fascia level I believe. If you can get coverage, I say run!

Hey Sarena! I actually went to my first Airrosti (Applied Integration for the Rapid Recovery of Soft Tissue Injuries) treatment this morning. This is also at the fascia level but it is specific to the injured area. It went really well! It was painful and I have some bruising already but I already feel better and my hamstring is less tight than it was before... Also, this is covered by insurance!!!
