Back pain can have many sources: birth defects, accidents or poor posture while working, sitting, driving, walking and working on the computer are just a few.
A 60 to 90 minute massage targeting a problem area may be all you need to relax tight muscles and find relief from back pain.
With experience in medical massage, sports massage, warm Himalayan Salt Stone massage and stretching, Roy will work with you to customize a massage.
The spinal column has three sections that create three natural curves in your back at the neck, rib cage, and lower back.
There are inward curves at the neck and lower back (lordosis) and an outward curve at the chest level (kyphosis). In the illustrations you will notice the lower spine has a small forward curve. The lordotic curve of the lumbar spine is responsible for correct movement of the buttocks and hips.
Without this curve, your gluteal muscles are unable to contract fully.
Internal rotation and improper hinging at the pelvis when you bend work against the natural curve of your spine, this in turn will throw your back out of alignment.
Flattening your lower back by tipping your pelvis forward is harmful for the stability of your spine. If you flatten the lordotic curve of the lower back, known as hypolordosis, your glutes cannot be activated fully, and your lower back has to absorb more pressure and weight than it is designed to do, this will ultimately result in back pain.
