Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage

A Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage is a popular massage for those people looking to relieve back and muscle tension which has built up and been exacerbated by modern day stress.  It is especially  beneficial to a person who spends a long time sitting at a computer desk or carrying a child around.  Hot stones are used on problem areas as long as the client doesn't have contraindications for their use. The direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to access the deeper muscle layers. It is often a good idea to have a series of these massages to rectify a problem that has been presenting problems for a while.  Clients can then take the proactive step of making regular returns for massages to keep back, neck and shoulder problems at bay.
