The back is probably the most common area to be massaged and is undoubtedly one of the areas we are most aware of when it comes to muscular aches and pains.
Back pain is one of the most common ailments that GP’s in the UK have to deal with and most of us at some point in our lives will have to deal with it.
Back pain can have many causes including awkward movements, lifting incorrectly, poor posture, being immobile for too long (such as at computer or on a long drive) or stress and anxiety.
Back Massage just describes the area of the body being worked on and not the type of massage. This could be a relaxing massage such as aromatherapy or hot stones to a more clinical treatment such as Deep Tissue Massage or Sports Massage.
