The main cause of most neck pain is shortened neck, hip flexor and shoulder muscles. Poor posture is the result and puts the head in a forward position, causing neck muscles to have to contract to hold the head up.   Build up of toxins result and the person gets pain and headaches.  Long term compression on the vertebrae from tight muscles, breaks down the cervical and thoracic discs, causing bulging or herniated discs and degeneration to our spine.  Stretches are the key to get rid of your pain.  Elongate the tight muscles and restore joint mobility to get your posture back.

The main cause of  most low back pain is a shortened Psoas muscle.  This muscle

attaches to each of the low back vertebrae and causes compression to this area as

well as tilting the pelvis forward, making muscles contract and having us arch to

stand erect.  Long term compression on the vertebrae breaks down the lumbar discs,

causing bulging or herniated discs and degeneration to our spine.

Most people dont realize that stretching is the most important thing you can do to keep yourself healthy.   Stretching keeps us young by keeping us flexible and preventing unneccessary degeneration to our body.  Stretching gets much needed circulation to our body to eliminate toxins.  Stretching prevents poor posture.

Most people don't know that you can reduce the size, appearance and sensitivity of your scar.  Scar tissue doesn't have to be ugly and disfiguring.   Scars don't have to be painful to the touch.  You can reduce the size, appearance and the sensitivity of the scar. The secret is reducing the binding of the scar tissue by getting circulation into and around it and loosening up the binding fibers of the scar tissue.  Massage and deep tissue work and stretching loosen up the binded fibers which lessens the pain and makes the scar tissue less raised.  Myfoascial release is very effectiive in breaking down scar tissue. 

Its easy.  Just perform deep tissue massage and stretching and break up the adhesions and binding of the scar to reduce the size and appearance of it.  By getting circulation into the scar, you will reduce the pain/sensitivity of it.
