Tomorrow is World Heart Day so here at YOU Massage Therapy we wanted to talk to you about the different massage techniques which can be used to benefit those who suffer with stress, anxiety and other factors which can lead to heart problems. There are so many different types of massage treatments some are excellent at reducing stress and tension and others are fantastic at eliminating the tension associated with stress and tension such as knotty shoulders and stiff necks.
