Who will benefit from Soft Tissue Massage Therapy?
There are lots of people suffering with aches and pains brought on by their job, lifestyle, sports and hobbies. Many of us are spending more time sitting down, whether that be at a computer, driving or watching TV. This can lead to some muscles becoming tighter and weaker and others becoming overused.
This kind of sedentary lifestyle can often lead to problems, such as:
• Poor posture
• Muscle Imbalance
• Headaches & Migraines
• Shoulder pain
• Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
• Hip Bursitis
• Repetitive Strain Injury
Our bodies are designed to move, and our muscles and joints are at their happiest when we live a more active lifestyle. We can use massage and soft tissue techniques to help reduce pain, encourage better posture and improve movement patterns. This not only helps in the short term, but with regular treatment will help to prevent problems in the future too.
