Upper-back & neck
A back pain and neck pain often go together. And while not a serious disorder, they cause commonly a lot of pain to a lot of people. In fact, two thirds of the population has neck or shoulder pain at some point in their lives.
These problems may be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. In most cases, back pain will improve in a few weeks or months, although some people experience long-term pain or pain that keeps coming back.
The Treatment Plan
If the pain appears to be long-term of chronic, some of the reasons could be Upper-cross Syndrome or TMJ Syndrome. If you find yourself suffering from such issues, we offer a conservative treatment in a form of Treatment Plan. This package consists of 10 sessions spread over 10 weeks. During this time, our specially trained therapist will work with you individually. She will target problem areas with a laser precision as well as offer a lot of guidance into developing or adjusting your home-exercise routine to support these treatments. We also include treatments which address the stress component of your complains as it is known that many of the postural and muscle problems are increased by exposure to emotional, physical and chemical stress.
This treatment is not suitable for you if you are not ready to commit to your treatment plan and if you expect to be a passive recipient of the treatments. We are very keen on monitoring your progress and work together with you on our common goal (get you better- LONG TERM!). This will be possible only if you come to us with an open mind to learn about your condition as well as willingness to do your part in this project.

Massage Sense was recommended to me by a chiropractic. I had a very good first experience: the owner, Zuzana, is a professional massage therapist who is not only committed to service, but also to helping someone help herself. I am invited to give feedback during massages so the therapist can focus the massage to my needs. She offered me information to further improve my wellness. This summer Massage Sense offered a new product: a 10-week treatment plan. I was interested to see if it could help me with headaches I get from working too long hours behind a computer. The treatment consists of massages and exercises to practice at home. I am now halfway and already feel a lot of change for the better. I feel I have a better posture, I can engage my muscles in neck and shoulders more easily (it feels like meeting old friends again), I feel I have room to move. And it feels great. I will definitely finish this treatment and try to keep doing the exercises.Mariska K.
