Escape Work Stress with Simple Massage Techniques

June 1, 2017

We know the stresses of life- between balancing a job, paying the bills, and taking care of your family, it’s easy to put yourself last on the list of priorities. Stress and anxiety produce a plethora of side effects- but perhaps the most common are muscle tension and cramps in the neck, and lower back- and when these get extreme, they can cause migraines. The last thing you need on top of the stress is tight muscles and a sore back.

We are here to help. With these few video resources, you can give yourself a massage to help alleviate the pain and get relaxed. We’ll share a few of our favorites- but if you would rather take a spa day for yourself, set an appointment at our state-of-the-art facility for a spa day.
