|Dianad you definitely have a point there.
I have suffered from back and neck ache all of my life due to a slight scoliosis of the spine and it is made much much worse when i spend a long time at my computer or sitting still. Iâve had physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic treatment and although they lessened the pain, it always came back after a few days.
In October I had a breast reduction and went from a G-cup, to a C-cup. This has helped enormously. With my new, more streamlined breasts I can now do Yoga and have been practicing at a class once a week since February. The result is incredible.
Recently Iâve started doing some work for a spa in leeds called Waterfall Spa. They sent me on a sampler day and one of the treatments I had was their âtension busting massageâ. It uses deep tissue massage to really work out the knots in your back and neck caused by tension and stress, and aromatherapy oils, which help to relax your body and mind in general.
I have to say I am definitely going to be back for more!
From my yoga I have learnt that pain relief has a lot to do with breathing and relaxing your muscles. However other than my one hour of yoga a week, realistically there arenât many times in my hectic schedule for breathing techniques! I found that being in the spa itself (in the aromatherapy room and the hydrotherapy pool) gave me the time to do my deep breathing and just relax fully for a whole day- I felt wonderful!
