The spine is an intricate and complex supporting structure composed of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and discs. All causes of back pain arise from problems with these component parts. When the back or neck is sore or painful there is usually difficulty moving it, especially to one side. This is due to the protective muscle spasm that the body uses to limit potentially harmful movement. When muscles become irritated from prolonged and frequent abuse, it can compress the nerves resulting in pain that also causes numbness and tingling anywhere along the pathway of the pinched nerve.

The negative effects of burnout spill over into every area of life - including your home, work and social life. Burnout can also cause long-term changes to your body that make you vulnerable to illness like colds and flu. Because of its many consequences, it´s important to deal with burnout right away.

Movements are focused on superficial layers of muscles in and around the general region of complaint. The pressure and friction of massage therapy improves local blood and lymphatic circulation. This will result in reduced muscle tension and increased flexibility.
