Backache

Backache can have many different causes

  • stress
  • tension
  • pregnancy
  • poor posture
  • too much gardening
  • poor muscle tone in the core muscles
  • wear or damage in the structure of the spine
just to name a few. You may not even know the cause of yours!

How can I help

The solution to your backache will depend on why it is aching in the first place.

A stressful life can give you a bad back. When you are stressed you unconsciously tense your muscles, if this continues for long periods the muscles stay tense and never relax. You then "learn" that is your normal state and over time this leads to discomfort and pain.

Our core muscles are essential to the smooth function of our bodies and especially the health of our spine. Our modern lifestyle of slumping in chairs and hunching over laptops is not good for our core muscles and can lead to a weak core.

A regular exercise practice like Chi Kung or Yoga can help you improve your posture, strengthen your core and release unwanted physical tension. Thai Massage can help you discover where you holding tension and guide you to let go.

Pregancy

Thai Massage is a wonderful massage for pregancy and is safe to receive in the 2nd and 3rd trimester. The whole sequence is adapted to work on your side and propped up both to care for you back and ensure that it is as relaxing as possible. Reiki is a lovely soothing treat during massage and totally safe for the whole of your pregancy.

Contact me and we talk about the options. If I cannot help you I have a range of excellent local contacts and won't hesitate to refer you.

Backache can be a symptom of a serious condition and if you are unsure of the cause or concerned then you should see your GP.

Only when you can be still, can you see the right way to move next
