3 Main Causes Of Shoulder Pain and How To Recover

Unfortunately, we are not taught preventative selfcare in schools. Shoulder pain touches almost all of us at some point. If you know anyone who struggles with it today please send them the link to this page with our videos below on how to treat your shoulder pain for long-term prevention. While doctors can prescribe us painkillers and rest, the actual shoulder rehabilitation is left to our own devices. The best news is that the pain is not a life sentence, and our body responds incredibly well to the techniques we offer in our care routine. We can release tension, reduce inflammation and learn about our body through the practice of yoga, self-massage, and building strength that matters.

3 MAIN CAUSES OF SHOULDER PAIN:

  1. Unbalanced rotator cuff muscles strength combined with improper posture, rounding shoulders forward.

  2.  Side sleeping catching up with us, causing chronic pain and inflammation in our 40ties +

  3.  Repetitive improper strain load, and all accidental injuries.

3 PROVEN SOLUTIONS TO START FEELING BETTER:

 

1.  Resistance training, strengthening  - try our 360°Barre program in-person or on-demand

2.  Stretching a few times a day, following ergonomics, doing gentle yoga, regular massage, cupping

3.  Inflammation relief: anti-inflammatory ointments like our Muscle & Joint Care Roll-On, and eating anti-inflammatory colorful foods and Red Light Therapy

RESISTANCE REHAB

Our 360°Core program is our thoughtful solution to back pain. Our body deteriorates fast under constant stress paired with a limited range of daily motion, weakened abs, and back body muscles. Glow Core Program is infused with Pilates, Physical Therapy, Barre, and Resistance training and is designed to increase muscle-bone density, cardiovascular endurance, and core strength at any age. Mindful of joints, precisely controlled movements sculpt the 360° of muscles around our torso, shoulders, hips, legs, and arms. Always challenging, this short and effective class boosts mental focus and creates sustainable energy helping us accomplish more in less time. To start feeling better we recommend taking 2-3 weekly in-person classes, or simply doing the 10-30min classes from home via our Glow-On-Demand.

 

MASSAGE

I'd like to emphasize here one of the most under-estimated and under-utilized pain relief tools: massage. 

Circulation = Healthy Immune System. Professional bodywork improves lymph-blood circulation, and metabolism eliminates dead cells and toxins and speeds up all recovery. Regular massage is even more important for people who do not work out as poor circulation fosters all dis-ease.Even oncologists now recommend massage for reducing pain and supporting our immune system. 

Besides our CBD massage therapy appointments, every Saturday at 10:30a we teach Gentle Yoga Class with Massage Therapy Balls for more area-specific tension release. An incredible class both for mental and physical stress reduction. And, Glow Yin yoga on Friday nights comes with longer-held feel-good stretches, promoting parasympathetic response, stress release, and ultimate relaxation.

In our self-massage Channel below, we have put together many thoughtful sequences of deep stretches and myofascial release using the therapy balls and a foam roller. We can heal physical, and also emotional pain with regular deep tissue work.

If you are currently in pain, we recommend applying our Joint-Muscle Pain Relief Oil 2-3 times a day, book Red Light Photobiomodulation Therapy with your Massage to reduce inflammation to start your recovery. Our recommendation for self-massage is once a week. You can create a weekly roll-out routine when you catch up on your favorite show. 

Please take advantage of our $117 Spa Membership to book an affordable monthly massage. It is priced at $108 and includes a nourishing foot wrap during your massage visit, and unlimited access to all of our video sequences using massage therapy balls and a foam roller at home for a feel-good stiffness-pain-inflammation relief in your entire body, and specific areas. 

THE BENEFITS OF REGULAR MASSAGE:

- improve circulation and tissue renewal

- unburden areas of high tension, revive overworked muscles

- help reduce inflammation all throughout your body

- release knots and trigger points

- melt away stress and anxieties, tune in to your parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest/digest/repair” state

- increase mobility and flexibility

- improve your sleep, prevent migraines, and more

- Tension, Pain & Inflammation Relief Roll-On by Inhale Nature >

Why massage is even more important for people who don't work out daily:

1. Circulation = Healthy Immune System. Poor circulation fuels all dis-ease. Professional massage improves lymph-blood circulation to eliminate dead, damaged cells and toxins and distribute the nutrients to speed up all renewal and recovery.

2. Pain, Hormones, Digestion, Mental Health, Fertility. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol and increases oxytocin which restores the quality of sleep, digestion, and fertility. Massage has recently received empirical support for facilitating growth, reducing pain, increasing alertness, diminishing depression, and enhancing immune function and has become a part of cancer recovery treatment.

Skin-Fitness Facial Massage is an ultimate feel-good facial to plump up, energize your skin and eliminate tension around your neck, scalp, and jaw. There are over 50 muscles in the face and neck that hold our skin: some need to relax, and some need 300% more circulation and stimulation. Part of this facial is a scalp massage to boost hair growth and prevent tension headaches. You will notice the firmness and radiance after the first visit and your skin will be the happiest and strongest with a regular facial massage. I cannot wait for you to try this - it feels AMAZING!
