Don’t you love all the conveniences of technology in this 21st century. I love using my computer, typing, researching, even doing such things as sending e-mail and inviting my daughter’s friends over for a play date. I have, however found that this often leaves my neck in agony, and this in turn trickles down to my shoulders, spine, even arms and fingers.As we organize our lives online, we sit still and usually hunched over. His leads to the pain. Do you want a prescription, or a constant intake of over the counter pills? Not me, I actually tried a neck massage. It helped with eye strain as well as other ailments. I just walked into my local spa, and there I found a great massage therapist.Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue. This is done to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. If you are looking to modern medicine to cure your issues, maybe you are looking in the wrong place. The art of massage dates way back, back to over 3000 years. It has been documented by the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians. They all applied forms of massage for many ailments. Hippocrates even wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Neck massage is not an ancient cure, but a modern cure based on ancient methods.My first neck massage was performed by a massage technician who had her own equipment. She had me sit facing the back of a chair, and had my neck exposed. My shoulders were alternately massaged back and forth for about a minute. After that my neck muscles were squeezed as I relaxed my muscles. I was instructed to move my shoulders up and down, then to relax. This, too was done alternately. My neck was rubbed from the base up to my skull. My first massage took about 10 minutes as it was just a neck massage. If you are having a neck massage as part of a general massage the whole experience will take longer.So, how do you find a massage therapist that can work on your aching neck? Well, as with everything, there are qualifications, and there are genuine qualifications. You can ask your doctor to refer you to one he/she works with, this may even be covered by insurance. There are so many types of massage, and it is done in a variety of ways with a variety of ancient remedies.Of all the massages available, so far I have found that a neck massage is the most convenient for the amount of relief and least amount of main. A neck massage is performed while the recipient is clad, but in a low necked garment. Other massages are performed on a person partially clad, or nude. Do you think this sounds good? Ask your doctor for a referral, or simply find your local spa. You’re sure to enjoy this.
