Scar Tissue Release for Tattoos BY DIANE HOVEY T attoos, or "body art" as my clients like to call them, are a common sight here in California. That's why the large tattoo covering the upper back of the young man standing in my treatment room did not engender a response other than passing interest in the art itself while I completed his postural reassessment. He had come to me for help relieving his constant lower back and hip pain acquired while he attended college on a football scholarship, so my attention focused on the interesting collection of postural distortions and biomechanical dysfunction, not the wings spread across his shoulders. The author's client displays his extensive tattoo. Image provided courtesy of Diane Hovey. 72 massage & bodywork september/october 2010
