HOW myhomespa-OCM WORKS

Muscles at the back of the neck must always be tensed, otherwise the head would fall forward when a person is sitting or standing. When these muscles work too hard, it can cause neck pain and tension headaches. People who are worried or under stress often tighten their muscles more than is necessary to hold their head upright in other words, they are literally 'tense'.

Because of the many reflex or pressure points in the hands, massage and passive stretches have a beneficial effect on the whole body.
Sciatica is a common diagnosis seen in patients who are experiencing pain down the leg (often times without sciatic nerve involvement). Athletic activities involving running without proper stretching can create gluteus minimus (buttock) trigger points.

Massaging the tense muscle groups of the head and neck helps circulation and eases pain.
Massage improves blood flow and eases tension, thus relaxing the shoulder and back muscles.
Our ONSITE CHAIR MASSAGE is a 15 to 20-minute massage that focuses on the high tension areas of the neck, back, shoulders, arms, hands, thighs and legs. Chair massage is performed on an ergonomically designed portable massage chair. You sit on the massage chair facing forward, with your head in a face-rest. Chair massage is especially effective at producing therapeutic results in a brief period of time by concentrating on key tension areas. No disrobing is necessary.

TENSION HEADACHE is the most common type of headache and is caused by the tightening of the muscles of the face, neck and scalp because of stress, exertion, or poor posture. The tightening muscles cause expansion and constriction of blood vessels, which can make head pain worse. Eyestrain from paperwork, reading and prolonged focusing are common causes of headaches in the workplace.

BACK PAIN can result from repetitive tasks, lifting, stretching, twisting, or simply remaining in one position for prolonged periods while assuming a wrong posture.
Office workers and those with static seated positioning are at risk for developing gluteus minimus* trigger points.
