Back Massage Alleviate Hurts More Effectively
Do you have kids? Do you have a car? A home? Go grocery shopping? You use your back, and you use it a lot! Over and over, you pick heavy things up - car seats, children, groceries, backpacks - to name but a few! Surely you feel a slight pain in your lower or upper back, perhaps your shoulder blades. Not only you, but your spouse probably has the same symptoms. You deserve a back massage. Have you ever had one? Do you know the benefits? I do. The benefits are so great and so numerous, and deal far beyond what you would expect.
Spas offer more than just a back massage, from fingers to toes, from back to head. We tend to neglect our backs, even we are always using them. They are used even more than our feet. While I have tried many different massages, and enjoy them all, I feel that a back massage is most beneficial.
A masseuse will help navigate you through the world of massage. There is a variety of options for you to choose from head to hand, from finger to toes! You may wear nothing but towels, but if unsure, you should keep your underwear on. My first massage was so great. My back felt so good, and it wasn't just a short relief. It is still great, even after a few weeks.
When I started complaining to my spouse about my back, he said "take pain relievers". When I spoke with a girlfriend, she recommended (with great sympathy) a back massage. She has been having them frequently for the past year, and has great things to say about them. She especially loves her masseuse, and pretends she's on vacation in the tropics when she is having one.
Don't you love medicine? Would you prefer the massage-fix or long term pain medication? Certainly pain relief has come a long way, but consider this. In 1996, the Atlanta Olympic medical team decided that they would have a masseuse on hand in case of injury.
Even though there are so many forms of massage and it can be performed on any body part, to me, the back massage is the greatest necessity. As a parent, I am constantly carrying heavy items while taxi-ing 3 girls hither and yon.
In order to keep the back healthy, one must stretch. Sure, we drive our children to dance, sports, track and sports, but do we really get what we need? I know personally, I sit through 3 hours of ballet, 4 of music and 2 of tap dance. Does this keep my back healthy? I don't think so.
However, ours is not a perfect world. My 6 yr old will not run and keep up with me. Heavens, she will barely keep up with my walk pace. She refuses to sit in a stroller or to ride her bike. She also will throw a fit when I mention that maybe, just maybe, she will sit through two hours while her sisters have their ballet class. What's a mom to do. Say nothing, but get a back massage!
