It is not always all bout the back. Ask for additional focus on hands, feet, scalp or even lower legs. You would be surprised how relaxing it can be. Massage therapists are often guilty of spending too much time on clients backs. There are many muscles in the back and back pain or soreness is a common complaint that most clients have. But the whole body needs attention. Our hands, feet, legs and yes even our scalps can become tight and sore, full of additions and triggers. Many people don’t realize how in need they are until attention is given to these often neglected areas. So, do yourself a favor. The next time you are getting a massage ask for a little less time on the back and a little more focus on the extremities. You will be glad you did.
