8 Tips on How to Give a Great Neck and Shoulder Massage

1. Have the person sit down in front of you on a stool or a chair that allows access to the back. Feel his/her neck and shoulders to see where the tension needs to be relieved the most. These areas should be given special attention.

2. With one hand on each shoulder muscle (up next to the neck) start gently squeezing and rub the muscle. Extend your thumbs down towards the back a bit while doing this. Check with the person to make sure you are not applying too much pressure. Remember, you want him/her relaxed not in pain from your actions.

Treating Muscle Spasms and Cramps

Defining the Problem of Muscle Spasms and Cramps

Whenever a muscle or even small fibres of the muscle contract without you consciously making it happen, it is known as a muscle spasm. When the muscle or fibres that have contracted sustain this contraction, the spasm becomes a fully-fledged cramp. Muscle spasms and cramps vary in intensity from person to person and from situation to situation.

How can Pregnancy Massage Help?

Studies have shown that pregnancy massage can reduce anxiety, relieve symptoms of depression, soothe those bothersome joint pains and muscle aches and even improve the outcome of your labour, giving your new born child the best start to life.

Pregnancy massage is able to relax built-up muscle tension, improve the lymphatic system as well as blood circulation. These results are accomplished by applying mild pressure to the body’s various muscle groups.

The Health Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage uses a more forceful approach. The slow, forceful technique is used to target those layers of connective tissue and muscle that are deeper in the body. This is usually the method chosen for the relief of damage due to injuries.

Deep muscle massage concentrates on realigning the deeper layers of muscle. While many of the movements are the same, the strokes are slower and deeper.
