Aches and pains

:Most of us experience aches and pains. They can be the result of muscle strain and infection - or have no particular cause. There are the times you spring for a massage because you woke up with a crick in your neck that brings tears to your eyes. If you are like many people, you may have visited your physician with general complaints like "I just feel old", "I hurt all over", or "I'm tired and weak". If you are older, you may hear the answer from your physician, "It's probably arthritis and remember you are getting old." In my experience and working as a full time complimentary therapist with 15 years .Some health conditions can cause pain throughout the entire body. Muscle pain may be a sign of a condition affecting the whole body, although all over pain can also be caused by inadequate blood flow to the tissues and nervous system disorders. Total body pain can be debilitating, and it can significantly affect a person's quality of life.

Is stress making you ache? It can be the overlooked cause of headaches, back pain, neck aches and more. The unmeetable deadline, the never-satisfied boss, the you-don't-deserve-him mother-in-law: We all know how pressure and aggravation make us feel. Less well recognized is that even chronic, unpleasant stress, the kind that's so constant you consider it normal, can cause aches and pains that you might not attribute to emotions. I believe half of the patients doctors see for various common body aches are actually expressing psychological distress through physical pain.
The source of stress-related pain lies in the brain, which, when you feel under the gun, triggers the release of cortisol, adrenaline and other hormones that prepare the body for action by, for example, increasing heart rate, blood pressure and respiration. Less noticeably, these hormones also make muscles tense up, which can cause aches and irritate nerves.Headaches
Tension headaches are sometimes called hatband headaches because pain occurs all around the head, although it's most intense at the temples and back of the skull. The tight areas causing the ache, however, are often concentrated in the face and neck, referring pain through muscle fibers and nerves..
sore neck
Neck and shoulder pain
The neck is particularly prone to stress-related pain in part because it's already bearing the burden of your 10-pound head. Pain may start with bad habits like squeezing the phone between your shoulder and your ear, but tension in neck muscles makes the problem worse, often causing pain to radiate. A recent study in Finland found that in addition to physical factors like working with a hand raised above shoulder level, mental stress is strongly linked to the likelihood of experiencing radiating neck pain. In most cases, getting rid of pain in the neck will benefit the shoulders as well.
In my experiece
There is a strong connection between stress and back pain. Stress causes a release of stress hormones. Stress hormones increase the perception of pain.
Stress hormones also cause the muscles to tighten up. The muscles may tense up so much they go into painful spasms. Muscle tension reduces blood flow to the tissues (reduced oxygen and nutrients to the tissues). Back and neck muscles are particularly sensitive to the effects of stress.Tense back muscles increase back pain and pain increases tensing of muscles - a vicious cycle of stress and back pain can be created.The slightest muscle tension may be 'the straw the broke the camel's back.' For instance, if spinal nerves are already restricted by scar tissue or calcium deposits it may take minimal muscle tension to compress nerves and cause pain. Sciatica  may flare up when one is feeling stressed.
I begins your consultation with a thorough health & lifestyle history . This is to ensure I am aware of any past or current problems before the treatment. Only then will i choose the best course of treatments for you.
Feel lighter, calm and relaxed through a variety of massage techniques in a safe and professional environment geared just for you.
Always professional, always memorable!

Thanks for sharing these types of wonderful content. In addition, the right travel plus medical insurance plan can often eradicate those issues that come with touring abroad. Any medical crisis can soon become too expensive and that's guaranteed to quickly put a financial impediment on the family finances. Setting up in place the perfect travel insurance deal prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Thank you
