Back, Neck & Shoulder Massages

The "Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage" is a treatment focusing on trigger points created by the overuse of back, neck, and shoulder muscles on a daily basis. Trigger points are tight muscles that can cause nagging pain in other parts of the body. Up to 75% of muscle pain can be caused by these trigger points. Headaches, lower back, and jaw pain are some of the most common issues people experience. When a muscle is overused or injured, blood flow can be greatly reduced. When this happens, chronic muscle pain and diminished healing can occur.

What can cause a trigger point?

  • Poor posture
  • Physical or emotional trauma
  • Stress
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiency
  • Lack of sleep

How can I reduce trigger points?

  • Massage
  • Stretch
  • Stay active
  • Applying ice or heat to an effected area

Treatment at Therapeutic Touch improves posture, relaxation, and releases muscle tension and stress. Reliving these tiny contraction knots in the muscle allows more blood to flow to the injured area, thereby reducing discomfort and speeding up the healing process.
