Why you should get a massage if you have no pain: Thoughts on Prevention

As an experienced provider of deep tissue and sports massage in the Orlando, Florida area I work with A LOT of people that are in pain.

  • Back Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • And every other Pain you can imagine

The majority of massages I provide are for helping someone who is in pain.  Whether I am loosening tight musculature surrounding an injury, working out "knots" or increasing range of motion, people call me when they are hurting.

That is great and I feel so lucky I get to be a part of their healing journey.  A good deep tissue massage can help alleviate many pain symptoms and over time can play a part in eliminating chronic pain.
