Working as the cashier in a supermarket, I long had to sit in one place. And if at first it was tolerant, then in several months by the end of the working day I began to feel a sharp headache in a nape, a neck and shoulders. Eventually, because of these constant pains I planned to change a job. But the girlfriend advised me to descend to one good doctor and after I tried all other ways of treatment, I nevertheless decided to register in massage. And it was my rescue! Painful feelings left and did not appear a long time. Now I time in half a year take a massage course from 10 procedures, and it to me is quite enough to feel completely healthy, vigorous and cheerful.
Really, time of rather ordinary massage to get rid of many pains and to lighten itself mood. Do not save on the health!
