Body Misalignment=Pain, unexpected benefits of massage therapy
Do you have fear you may be developing arthritis or chronic aches, pains? Does your neck always hurt after you drive? Do you have other “weird” seemingly unrelated symptoms of pain or discomfort?
It might surprise you to learn the degree to which posture, habitual movement patterns, repetitive use with less-than-optimal “form” or “alignment”, even just the orientation of your feet as you walk and stand, all contribute to the above-listed symptoms!
These are considered issues of alignment, and they affect your entire body and can produce troublesome, sometimes really painful symptoms that mimic or create things like arthritis, sciatic nerve pain, stress fractures in feet!
