Jing Neck, Shoulder and Back Massage

neck massage Most of us have a tendency to hold our tension - both physical and mental - in a particular part of the body. The most common areas affected are the neck and shoulders, closely followed by the lower back. Generally given time, these aches and pains go away on their own accord, but occasionally they will not, and sometimes they can settle into a 'chronic' stage.

By catching this stiffness and associated aches and pains early, a chronic condition may be avoided, so the pain may be quickly relieved. If the condition has already passed to the chronic stage then massage will improve the circulation to the area involved, thereby aiding waste removal and help the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) return to their normal function.

What is Jing Massage

Jing is a Thai word meaning 'true' or 'real'. 'Jing' massage is based on traditional techniques, but takes them to another more advanced and specific level.

The Jing Institute was founded in 2003 by directors, Rachel Fairweather and Meghan Mari, who met in New York City while working as massage therapists. Their aim was to start a revolution in the massage therapy in the UK and provide the type of advanced massage training available in other countries such as the USA.

The Jing protocols that I use in my practice include trigger point therapy, myofascial release, passive stretching, as well as conventional petrissage. The recipient is on a therapy couch during treatment, and is treated on both their front and back, and also on both sides (especially effective for neck and shoulder pain). Where appropriate, I will employ the 'side lying' technique, which is unique to Jing, and has been proven to be so effective that it has now been adopted by many highly regarded physiotherapists and sports masseuses.

A typical Jing session will be in three stages, beginning with the application of an infra-red massager, to warm and relax the muscles in preparation for facia release work, followed by trigger release and conventional massage.

The treatment will be tailored to your needs, but regardless of whether your pain is in the neck, shoulders or lower back, all areas will be treated. Muscles do not work in isolation. Therefore if a muscle or group of muscles are not functioning properly, they will pull on adjoining muscles, resulting in a painful chain reaction. Clients are often suprised at how much tension they are holding in areas that are not currently causing them pain.
