My job is a desk job. I often sit on my butt for hours on end, staring at a computer screen. Sometimes as a result of not moving around, not exercising properly or enough, my neck will lock up on me. Then I have neck and shoulder pain that worsens to the point that I can barely turn my head from side to side. The pain spirals downward and I'll have trouble all day long and it affects sleeping.
This was my situation a week ago when I had my first appointment with Carri. She listened as I detailed my symptoms and then began work. One thing that I really liked, was that she checked in with me regularly during the massage to ask about the pressure, did I want it deeper or softer. Carri really seemed to be in touch with my problem areas and did a fantastic job.
Here it is, one week later and my neck and shoulders still feel great! Currently, I'm better at doing my neck exercises to keep the muscles loose and relaxed, but if the problem returns, I won't hesitate to schedule another massage with Carri.
