There is some new research for helping people with neck pain solve the “how often” and “how long” questions when booking massages for yourself.
Have a quick read!
Remember, as far as research is concerned, massage is difficult to research because of how many variables are involved.
Take it how you will.
I believe that any research promoting better health and pain free living without medications is a step in the right direction.

Stress is a major contributor for many medical conditions: high blood pressure, anxiety, hypertension, depression and obesity to name a few. It has been well proven that both exercise and massage can reduce stress levels.
Exercise: reduces cortisol levels, gives a feeling of accomplishment, increases endorphins (feel good hormones), distraction from stressors. There are about 50 to list, these are just a few.
Massage: calming, reduces muscle tensions, releases endorphins, pain reduction (eventually). Again, to many to list.
The point is, between exercise and massage, stress in manageable! I know everyone is busy, I know everyone has no time and I know that it never seems like a priority.
What has to happen before it becomes a priority?
Take care of yourself and you will be around longer to take care of the ones you love!

Deep tissue massage is a firm massage that breaks up adhesions (knots) in the muscles. Most common reasons for a deep tissue massage are whiplash, sports injuries, headaches, carpal tunnel, tight neck/shoulders (sitting at computer), sore backs. FitInYYC believes that deep tissue massage should be used as a preventative tool to help heal the body before a serious injury occurs! Prevention is much less painful that Rehab!
Every massage is tailored to each individual client. Some like a combination of one or more types of massage incorporated into the same treatment. Here at FitInYYC, we pride ourselves on being able to provide this service.
