Why Do We Hurt?

a brief explanation of pain and its causes


Why do we hurt?

1. Today, stress is an unpleasant fact. The workplace is no exception. Deadlines, rapidly changing technology, and unavoidable interpersonal conflicts are just a few of the stresses workers cope with on a daily basis.

The effects of stress are cumulative and without time to relax and recharge, can lead to:

headaches, backaches, eyestrain, neck pain
listlessness, poor concentration, anxiety, depression, irritability, and anger
tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome
lowered resistance to colds and infections, high blood pressure, ulcers, and heart disease
Physical and emotional exhaustion i.e. burnout.
2. When a physical injury to a muscle occurs, the muscle fibres actually stick together restricting the lymphatic fluid from entering and causing the muscle cells to become dehydrated.

Client’s response:
3. Age, overuse, and emotional trauma place increased demands on the body which result in lymphatic and circulatory system breakdowns. Both insufficient oxygen and a build up of metabolic by-products add to the problem

The Benefits of Massage

Massage therapy can be used on its own or in combination with traditional medical treatments. All prior medical background is gathered before a treatment commences to ensure a safe and positive experience.
Even if a prior medical condition or injury does not exist, massage therapy can be a great way to let go and become one with your body. People who are physically active, under stressful situations or are even sedentary can experience the benefits of a massage treatment.
relief from stress
relax tightened muscles
release of toxins in muscle tissue
