Massage Sore Neck Cairns

Massage sore neck Cairns  and frozen shoulder treatment cairns – I am frequently called and asked if I can help with a ‘sore neck’ or that the person on the end of the phone says their neck is ‘sore’.  On the intake form in the clinic it is always neck pain and lower back pain more frequently than anything else.  This could be due to the volumes of people sitting at computer desks all the time.   It is also likely that life is getting more stressful so people a clenching and grinding their teeth and therefore tensing the scalp and neck as well.  Massage sore neck cairns is the solution!

No one is exactly sure where and when the word massage originated, but there are several theories. In Greek massein/masso means to touch, handle, knead or squeeze. The Arabic, mass/mass’h means to press softly. The Lating massa means to touch, handle, knead or squeeze. In Sanskrit makeh means to press softly, and the french verb masser means to rub.

Ancient Greece

Massage was widely practised in ancient Greece. In the 5th century BC Hippocrates, the Greek Physician known as the ‘father of medicine’, strongly advocated the use of massage, noting that ‘The physician must be acquainted with many things and assuredly with rubbing, for things which have the same name have not alwahardys the same effects, for rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose and loosen a joint that is too rigid….hard rubbing binds, much rubbing causes parts to waste and moderate rubbing makes them grow.

The Greek physician Asclepiades who lived in the 1st century bc, used massage to treat his patients in conjunction with relaxation, diet, exercise and bathing. He taught the disease occurs due to an imbalance in the natural harmony of the body.
