Is Your Purse Causing You Pain?


is your bag causing you pain?

learn how massage can help

Carrying a bag on the shoulder causes contraction and overuse of the muscles, usually in the trapezius. The depression of the opposite shoulder causes curvature in the mid spine. Along with the spinal misalignment, the consistent contraction causes a major distortion in ones posture.

Massage therapy helps relax the overworked muscles and by breaking up the knots, realigning, muscularly, the shoulders, neck and back.

In between massage sessions, here are somethings one can do to decrease the tension:

  • clean out your bag regularly to decrease the weight

  • ditch the bag from time to time

  • choose a bag with two straps, like a bookbag, to evenly distribute the weight.

  • switch to a messenger bag or a bag with wider straps

  • alternate shoulders

Call Shine On Massage to re-align that posture!

Do you Suffer From Headaches?

This Monday was an interesting day at Shine On. Why? Because the majority of our clients came to us with headaches. 


"Do you think you can get rid of my headache?" asked a weary client in pain.

Of course! The majority of time when people are suffering from migraines or headaches, it is usually caused from extreme muscle tension. In some cases,the muscles that attach to our occipital lobe (the back of the head at the base of the skull) can become so tense that it can actually start pulling on one’s Dura mater (the outside layer of the brain).
— Shine On Therapist

We find that after 60-90 minutes of massage that focuses on the neck and occiptial region, back, shoulders, and arms, people that come in with headaches, leave alleviated of any aches and has a noticeable decrease in muscle tension. 

Call us or book online to start your pain free life. 


We love you!

Where Did Massage Start?

A long, long, time a ago.... Check out this information from naturalhealers.com

A Form of Massage Emerges in India

Started practicing massage in approximately 3,000 BCE*, possibly earlier

Believed to be of divine origin and passed down orally through generations, Ayurveda is the traditional holistic medical system in India. Ancient seers and natural scientists developed this system based on centuries of studies, experiments and meditations.

Texts detailing Ayurvedic principles and practices were written some time between 1500 and 500 BCE. Based on these texts, Ayurveda was widely adopted throughout India and Southeast Asia.

Ayurveda views that individuals incur illnesses and diseases when they live out of harmony with their environment. To treat their conditions, individuals must restore their natural mental and physical balance by reestablishing harmony between themselves and the world around them. At that point, they can begin to heal naturally.

Based on the patient’s health imbalances, constitution and the time of year, Ayurveda recommends how to use the five senses to interact with the environment in order to create balance. Treatments in Ayurveda include diet and herbalism, aromatherapy, color therapy, sound therapy and touch therapy.


How interesting is it that Ayurveda practices believe that one gets sick when they are out of harmony? I wonder how many people are off balance in these times. Our technology has evolved, but have we as people? Just something to think about...
