Society has changed dramatically over the past decade. We are sitting and standing for longer periods of time, and have boosted the use of technology considerably. This has led to an increase in the use of our bodies, in misalignment, which in turn has increased the amount of people suffering from both neck and back pain.
As an a holistic health practitioner, I can see why any given body presented to self for healing is dysfunctional, and why the muscles are out of balance. It can be due to the muscles having adhesions, the skeletal system being biomechanically out of alignment or purely due to the emotional stress and tension that the body has chosen to carry.
