In the Moment - - Wellbeing -

Lower back pain is a com­mon and of­ten painful com­plaint. Guide­lines pro­duced by the Na­tional In­sti­tute for Health and Care Ex­cel­lence (NICE) rec­om­mend mas­sage, along­side ex­er­cise, as a way of man­ag­ing this.

For those who sit in the same po­si­tion for pro­longed pe­ri­ods, seated acupressure mas­sage can help to re­lieve mus­cu­lar aches and im­prove pos­ture.

If you hap­pen to have sen­si­tive skin, this type of mas­sage could be ideal for you as it doesn’t in­volve ap­ply­ing any oils or prod­ucts.

Ten­sion-type headaches can strike when mus­cles in the neck and scalp be­come tense or con­tract. Seated acupressure tar­gets and helps to re­lax mus­cles in these ar­eas.

Time poor? This type of mas­sage takes as lit­tle as 10 min­utes, so you can en­joy an ef­fec­tive, stress-busting treat­ment with­out hav­ing to keep an eye on the clock.
