“You know Ross, when I was on vacation, I noticed I didn’t hurt. I have come to the conclusion that all this stuff is caused by stress in my life.”
That is what a patient told me while receiving a massage. She pretty much hit the nail on the head. So much of what is going on in your upper back, neck and come from stress.
Stress from work, stress from kids, stress from stress.
I just finished Dr. Herbert Benson’s book The Relaxation Revolution. It is a great technique to lower that stress and help other health issues. Look it over and see if it is something that will help you. It is easy to do and effective. It is also researched and peer reviewed.
