A back and shoulder massage is a type of therapeutic massage that focuses on the muscles of the back and shoulders. The massage is typically performed using a combination of techniques such as kneading, knuckling, and tapping to help release tension, improve circulation, and increase mobility in these areas.
During a back and shoulder massage, the therapist will use a combination of oils or lotions to help ease the muscles and provide a smooth, gliding sensation. The massage will typically begin with the therapist working on the upper back, using long strokes to release tension in the shoulders and upper back. The therapist will then move on to the lower back, using deep pressure to help release tension in the lower back and lumbar region.
The massage will typically last for around 30 minutes, with the therapist focusing on specific areas of the back and shoulders that are most affected by tension and pain. The massage is designed to be a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and can help to improve posture, reduce muscle tension, and increase flexibility.
This type of massage is great for those who suffer from tension headaches, upper back and shoulder pain, or those who spend a lot of time sitting or working at a desk. It’s also great for those looking to relax, unwind and release tension in the upper body. It’s also a good idea to wear comfortable clothing and let the therapist know if there are any areas you would like them to focus on or avoid.
The back is the posterior side of the human torso and starts just above the buttocks and ends just below the neck. This treatment makes your body relax, relieves stress or even pain as this is part of the body that carries a lot of stress and tension. We use different types of massage depending on client need after consultation which helps us understand why the client opted for a back massage or even recommended by a therapist.
