Thought I'd share this with the muscle tightness and back pain crew.

I have been getting some regular (once a week) body work through a system called Rossiter.

In short, it is a myo-fascial release technique.

As a result, I have improved muscular balance, improved flexibility, and no pain.

My skiing is sharper too. My wife and I usually ski bumps. She has made a few comments on how much better my form is. The skiing definitely feels tighter and more focused. My stance has tightented fore/aft too. ...tele stance.

I regularly stretch twice a day, participate twice a week in Yoga class, and see the chiro. I'm skate skiing, tele-skiing, cycling and running. I can get bunched up pretty easily with all that activity.

I have to say that this Rossiter system has been very beneficial for me compared to Yoga, and chiro visits.

Check it

I'm bumping this because I feel that strongly about how much it has helped me.

LM, where are you?

I did a 200+ mile cycling tour last Sunday. My quads and IT bands started out pretty supple and ended up tight as a drum head afterwards.

Massage and stretching have never been able to provide enough release in the past. But the Rossiter therapy did give enough release that I am back to where I started before the tour. All it took was a 20 minute session.

Impressive stuff.

None of the fitness experts want to chime in here? I'm confused about that.

Rossiter is sort of new to me. But it has been a very effective method of assisted stretching that targets a muscles areas that are otherwise elusive to conventional methods.

LM has left.

Yeah, I know. You're implying that she alone cornered this market? Also, I posted the OP long before she left ...I think.

She pretty much had a lock. And you are right, you did post prior to her departure. But it's a PT thing, and not fitness, so she may not have known about it.

Well, the Rossiter thing has been kick in the arse for me.

I once posted a looooong time ago under another alias a thread about kegels that LM picked up on. Since then, I've met LM through Bob Barnes and a few other gang members.

I even see her around Copper every once in a while doing her survey thing.

So I figured that she'd like to discuss.

Sorry to hear that she no longer frequents the forums. I've read some of her articles in TPS.

LM come back!

If you do all those things you do, stretching and Yoga and all, and still have back problems, You need something unique.

I would only be a bundle of tiredness.

Relief from your symptoms is obviously important to you. I have no problems suffering through mine.

My attitude is don't look for trouble I haven't got.

The last thing I need is some "trip" to get all wound up about.

Good for you!

Thanks CalG. I would say that I manage tightness. I haven't had a bad back episode in a year. I would attribute the past year to my continued search for better understanding of my body. It's been a long, ongoing search. I felt the the latest "new" thing (rossiter) has had a significant impact that warranted sharing.
