It’s a few moments before this Barbados massage starts and I say to our client, “So Its a full body massage you are getting, but are there any areas that you’d want me to spend more time on? In turn are there any areas of tension?”
More often than not the answer to that question is “My back” or some other combination that includes Back, Feet and back , neck and back. Legs and back. A major place that holds a lot of tension in the body would be under the Scapula, or the “shoulder blade”
Under that wing bone
There are many muscles found in this region One being the Trapezius. Besides being painful locally at the point where your massage therapist touches you, it can refer pain to other regions. That is to say, the head, the nape of the neck and the shoulders.
Therefore tightness in the back can be the cause of many other pains throughout the body. As a result tension in the upper back and migraine headaches may occur.
