Having a sore neck can be really tough. I have treated people who have neck injuries due to car accidents, often they have come after some period of time following the accident. I have also had people who have a chronic stiff or tight neck. The other time that clients come with neck pain is when they have over exerted themselves & have pulled a neck muscle.
Shiatsu is a gentle form of hands-on therapy but is can be powerful & effective. As Shiatsu is generally given on the floor on a futon mat well supported neck stretches can be used to relieve symptoms. If the area is inflamed or very painful it is possible to work on the injury distally, from another point in the body, or to work either side of the injury. There are a number of different ways that Shiatsu massage can tackle client’s concerns.
Shiatsu can be helpful in easing pain levels, which can be helpful for chronic conditions. Some clients find Shiatsu will relieve or reduce the pain they feel for a period of time after the treatment. As successive treatments are given the length of time that the pain is relieved for does sometimes lengthen.
If you are suffering from neck pain & would like to discuss if Shiatsu may be able to help support you then do get in touch – through the ‘contact me’ page or on 07791 070837.
