Lower Back Pain in London

One of the common problems that many people complain to suffer from is an aching back. This issue may present as a minor problem or a moderate pain and can even be quite severe. The cause of an aching lower back can be influenced by many different factors. The nature of your work may require you to sit at a computer for long periods of time, and that prolonged position may be contributing to the development of back pain. Another common cause could be sleeping with bad posture which may lead to straining your lower back. Stress can also impact the development of back pain and severity may occur if it is prolonged and left untreated. Moreover repetitive injuries over your back can worsen the situation. All of these chronic lower back pain conditions can be treated with various forms of massage therapy.

What are some popular massage therapies for lower back pain?

Here are some popular massage therapies for lower back pain in London that can help improve the issue:

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage involves the use of long strokes in a continuous manner over your lower back. This massage would focus on all your problem areas i.e. stiff muscles and tensed tissues. Focusing on those areas would loosen up your tightened muscles and relax your body.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a popular healing therapy that involves the use of hot stones over your back. These stones are heated in a special bath and thus work with a heated therapy on your tensed areas. Our massage therapists will place these stones along your backbone. This therapy works similar to any acupressure therapy. Hot stones carry an energy that is transmitted to your back giving you a soothing back massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on aligning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
