A lot of my clients speak to me about sleep.
Here is an interesting article/ video demonstrating some techniques to use to promote a better nights sleep.
He does speak with plenty of terminology, but the soft tissue techniques he demonstrates are easy to follow – and besides promoting better sleep, they are a great way to get some self massage work on some of the important muscle groups that cause low back / neck & shoulder pain.
This is a really interesting and useful article. It highlights some exercises that are grea to prepare your upper body for a session, but also can give amazing results performed daily for those of us who work sat at desk, or behind a wheel – They focus a lot of the stabilizing muscles and on opening up the chest which is imperative in fighting back pain that is caused by this modern day posture!

Do you work in an office? Or in a role that requires repetitive strain through your wrists?
If you are feeling numbness or tingling in your hands, you could be beginning to feel symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Compression of the Median Nerve that runs through the ‘Carpal Tunnel’ at the wrist is one possible cause of the condition.
It is essential to seek treatment early before the condition becomes chronic! With good quality early treatment in the form of soft tissue therapy, appropriate flexibility and strengthening work, the early symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can be reversed in a few weeks…..the longer the condition has to set in, the longer it will take to rehabilitate and the chances of a successful conservative (without the need for surgery) outcome becomes less
Constant phone calls, late night text messages, and 24/7 connectedness – your smartphone probably requires constant attention, and keeping up with the device might be stressful at times. But new research suggests that your handheld gadget could be an actual pain in the neck by contributing to chronic neck pain.
When you look down at your cell phone – or any handheld device – you flex your neck downwards. Using advanced software models, researchers in New York calculated the net weight exerted on the cervical (upper) spine at varying angles. When the head is in perfect posture – ears aligned with shoulders and shoulder blades retracted – the weight of the head is about 10 pounds on the upper spine. At 15 degrees, the net weight of the head on the spine increases to 27 pounds. At 30 degrees, your neck experiences 40 pounds of pressure from the head. At 45 degrees – the posture at which many people text – the weight of the head is a whopping 49 pounds.
According to the study, the average American spends an average of 2-4 hours a day in this hunched position. Over the course of a year, this accumulates to 700 – 1400 hours. Extra stress on the cervical spine over time contributes to premature wear and tear as well as degeneration. In other words, craning your neck downwards can hurt your upper spine and lead to permanent posture problems. You probably won’t look good or feel good if your cervical spine is damaged.
