Shoulder & Neck Pain

Why Do Your Shoulders and Neck Hurt?

A lot of people suffer from aching shoulders, and a stiff neck.  It is not always caused by sleeping the wrong way, it is usually caused from stress. This in turn can result in the sufferer suffering from very painful and debilitating headaches. The majority of sufferers, can trace their problem back to stress, and poor working posture. Seeking the assistance of a professional massage therapist Hesperia, can put you on the track to a more stress free, and pain free environment.

Our bodies were not designed to sit in one position for hours on end, every day. Hunched over a computer in the office, is not healthy for the body in anyway, however, there are some steps you can take that will help reduce the consequences of having to do so.

Moving around, stretching, and getting the blood flowing, is something that should be being done by everyone who has to sit at a desk, in front of a computer for hours. When your body is being forced to sit in one position for hours on end, with no break, it will of course start to complain. We may not notice it as much while at work, because our focus is elsewhere, but those who have sat on a plane for many hours, understand completely how uncomfortable it can get, and the consequences of having to do so.

It is also important to realize here, that even though moving around, stretching, and doing certain exercises will certainly help, we have to also learn new habits.  Our bodies unfortunately, can be 'set' in a cycle of dysfunction that can create further complications such as Muscle Memory Disfunction.  We can quite easily fall back in to bad habits with posture. A professional massage therapist at Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works, can not only help ease the stiff and sore muscles in the neck, shoulders, and head, but show you some techniques on how to improve your posture.

It does take time to get used to changing the way you react to stress, as well as remembering to perform simple exercises to help, but with an individualized wellness program designed specifically for you, Terree can help you reduce, and even avoid causing these painful problems to yourself!

If you are an office worker, slumped over a desk and computer for hours on end, call or text Terree at BluePacific Massage and Body Works  (760) 680 7910.

Massage and Breathing

Breathing Can Impact Stressed Muscles
Most of us have experienced stressed-out shoulders, and tension related pain. These can often result in almost crippling tension headaches. A lot of people may not also realize that the way you breathe can have a large impact on stress and stress related pain as well. Seeking the services of a professional massage therapist, can not only help alleviate these symptoms, but teach you how to help yourself.

To understand how breathing can affect tension, it is important to understand what role breathing actually plays in our body, apart from the obvious need of oxygen. Breathing can also affect the mobility of muscles, and is also intertwined with our body's stress levels, and emotional responses. An anxiety attack is a perfect example of how extreme tension combined with an emotional response, can affect our breathing. Short, sharp breaths, (hyperventilating) can restrict the distribution of necessary oxygen throughout the body.  Lack of oxygen to the body can then result in symptoms such as numbness and tingling in arms and legs, dizziness, and even hysteria in extreme cases. This can result in even more stress, and the cycle continues.

There have been 3 different responses acknowledged, when someone is faced with a stressful situation, and these are 'fight, flight, or freeze.'  The one we are interested in here, is 'freeze.' Basically we 'freeze' when faced with a situation that causes us to panic yet, we freeze with fear, which affects the way we breathe. For those of us who are terrified of spiders, or snakes, we are all to familiar with the 'freeze' affect when faced with one of these creatures. It is also becoming all too common in the workplace.

When we 'freeze,' our breathing becomes very shallow, and our ribs barely move at all. Muscles become extremely tense, which can result in pain. If this occurs frequently, especially in work situations, our muscles can become semi-permanently locked in the same pattern, which leads to pain and dysfunction. Sore, tight, frozen shoulders, stiff necks, sore backs, and a tight chest are most of the symptoms.

Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works can not only work with you and teach you how to control this 'freeze' breathing, but to acknowledge the signs when they appear, and use breathing techniques to control the situation. They can also massage out the tension in those affected areas, freeing up the muscles and easing the pain.

Breathing also plays an important part in massage . While having your massage try to focus on your breathing, slow deep and even, allow yourself to experience all those relaxing sensations. When doing deep tissue massage you want to work with your massage therapist on your breathing techniques. Most professional massage therapist will explain to you how they want you to breath while performing certain massage techniques as this can play a huge role in the releasing of tension in those taut muscles.

Injured Or Not Massage Benefits You


Massage Therapy Is Not Just For Injured


Some people may only consider Massage Therapy, if they're injured, stressed, or are having other muscular issues. The truth is, a good regular massage therapy plan shouldn't just be considered by those trying to recuperate from an injury, or trying to gain back mobility.

Usually, those injured will rely on traditional medicines and treatments first.  When things still aren't progressing properly, they tend to seek out the assistance of a professional massage therapist such as Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works.

Even though massage therapy is a gentle, guided exercise to strengthen a tired body, as well as relieve stress, it is also a great way to just rejuvenate, to keep the body, and mind relaxed in the most optimal way possible. Having a regular massage and wellness routine helps keep you centered, the body and mind relaxed and your mobility up to par which gives us that all around “good” feeling that we all crave so much.

Even those who don't feel that they need a massage will benefit from the relaxing touch of a professional who is highly qualified, most professional massage therapists are also trained in a number of different massage techniques and can discern what areas need the most work and which massage technique to use so as to benefit you the most. We all have knots that need to be worked out, and sometimes a professional therapy session, with a qualified therapist which you will find at Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works in Hesperia Ca, is the only way.

How many often ask a friend, or partner to massage their neck, or back? Even though it feels great, unless the person performing the massage is qualified, and has an understanding of anatomy and physiology, they may not be getting into the root of the problem, or even alleviating it as much as possible.

Trained massage therapists, have to become certified, and take many courses in order to be qualified. They also are required to spend a certain amount of hours performing the actual massage with a licensed massage therapist's guidance before they become certified. The human body is sensitive and even fragile in some areas, so it is always a plus if you seek out a professional massage therapist especially if your issues are injury related.

Massage & Myofascial Release Techniques

Myofascial Release...Stretching of the fascia.

Understanding what Myofascial Release is and why or how it works, you need to understand a little about fascia. Fascia is a thin tissue that covers all the organs of the body, Fascia covers every muscle and every fiber of and within each muscle. All muscle stretching then, is actually stretching of the myofascial unit (the fascia and the muscle), muscle and fascia cannot be separated.
When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become tense or short and tight. This uneven stress can be felt throughout the fascia to other parts of the body, which can cause pain and a variety of other symptoms in other areas you often wouldn't expect. Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the tension or tightness of the injured fascia.
Direct Myofascial Release done through Deep Tissue work engages the myofascial tissues restrictive barrier or tension. Using a constant force on the tissue until release occurs. This can be done using knuckles, elbows, forearms, knees or other tools to slowly stretch the tension or restricted fascia. Direct myofascial release attempts to relieve the tension by stretching the fascia, or bringing movement to the adhesive tissues. Moving slowly through the layers of the fascia until reaching the deep tissues.
The indirect Myofascial Release is done with a gentle touch and stretch, with just a small amount of pressure, which helps the fascia to relax and release itself.
There are a lot of reasons why muscles, tendons and cartilage need to be stretched.
  •      Lengthens muscle fibers that have contracted from disuse or excessive use
  •          Increases flexibility
  •      Restores muscle balance
  •      Restore muscle flexibility after injury
  •     Assists in removal of natural wastes like lactic acid from muscles
  •     Warms the muscles


The benefits extend far beyond the muscles though.
  •  Improve posture
  •  Improves mental focus and concentration
  • Stimulate the digestive organs
  • Energize the body
  • Reduce inflammations in joints
  •  Relieve stress and tension


 This massage technique is often integrated into your massage at Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works be it Direct Myofascial Release or Indirect Myofascial Release. I always encourage all my clients to do Stretches through out their daily activities and in between massage appointments, as stretching really is helpful in relieving tension.

Massage and Healing



Massage is a healing art which requires a combination of academic knowledge along with clinical skills, sensitivity, awareness and manual dexterity. Nearly everyone has the natural feel for giving a massage, yet it takes a genuine desire to help others, with a commitment to the time, energy, and focus necessary for being a good solid Massage Therapist.

All the information Professional Massage Therapists learn in the Anatomy and Physiology course to become a licensed Massage Therapist help to better understand how the bones, muscles and other systems of the body work and integrate with each other. It is an important course and when properly applied to massage therapy it can greatly increase the effectiveness of a massage.

Getting a massage from a licensed Massage Therapist who can tell you about the muscle tensions they've just worked on, why there might be tension there, and what exercises would help to address the buildup of this tension is more beneficial to you the client.Trained massage therapists, have to become certified, and take many courses in order to be qualified. They also are required to spend a certain amount of hours performing the actual massage with a licensed massage therapist's guidance before they become certified.

The field of massage therapy is growing rapidly in response to the public’s expanding interest in forms of healthcare that promote well-being and a higher quality of life.

The Full Body Massage

What Is A Full Body Massage?


When some people think of a full body massage, they may mistakenly think of it as a sexual type of massage that goes on behind closed doors, while this can be true in some of the unethical massage business’s, and while massage in itself can be sensual, a full body massage, from a professional, and certified massage therapist such as myself, has nothing to do with sex.
Blue PacificMassage and Body Works is a licensed, professional, and qualified massage therapy business.

What a professional full body massage involves is the massaging of the entire body with pressing, stroking, and kneading techniques. Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works Full Body Massageincludes the upper and lower back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet on both the front and back of the body. This Full Body Massage is a Swedish Massage combined with Deep Tissue (if needed) Shiatsu, Reflexology, Trigger Points and a few mild Stretching Techniques. This refreshing full body massage relieves stress and tension aches for pure relaxation. There are many different methods, and techniques used, depending on each client's needs. No two clients are the same therefore I treat each client according to their individual needs, issues, aches, and discomforts.

A full body massage more often than not uses a variety of massage techniques and methods, often combining them as opposed to one specific type. As an example, Swedish massage uses five styles of long flowing strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage refers to techniques designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Whereas a full body massage could use some of the Swedish massage in conjunction with other methods and techniques.

Some important factors associated with a professional therapeutic massage include:

· Massage is more often done on a professional massage table although some techniques use specific kinds of floor mats or a professional massage chair.

· Massage lotions, massage oils or massage gels are applied to help reduce friction on the skin.

· Soft music is usually played to help produce a calming and relaxing environment.

It is also important to remember, this massage can take awhile, usually Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works Full Body Massage will take from 80 to 90 minutes, also offered is a 2 hour full body massage which is very beneficial as it gives your body more time to stay in a relaxed atmosphere which plays an important part in the bodies healing process. You need to allow yourself and me the time to work on you properly, and professionally to ensure you are getting the maximum benefit.

Muscle Memory
Muscle memory problems can contribute to everything from postural irregularities to chronic pain.
Your natural muscle memory can change from repetitive movements, long-term stress, surgeries and traumatic injuries. What usually happens is your muscles enter an altered state due to the trauma and then remember that altered state even though it’s not the normal resting or moving position.
Your muscles learn to return to the non-natural state and use that non-natural state as its natural state. This muscle memory can be a cause of pain, even long after the actual injury has presumably healed. With massage and stretching you can retrain the muscle memory to its natural state, but it does take time.
Just like when we learn something new it takes time to remember whatever it is we are learning. Take for instance when I learn a new massage technique like a certain stretch I have to continually remind myself as I am doing the stretch where I place each hand and which direction to stretch. After repetitively doing the stretch for my clients I find myself doing the stretch without having to remind myself which hand goes where and which direction to stretch. All that practice made me able to automatically do the stretch without thinking!
Same with your muscles! We retrain them with massage to go back to the natural state of being relaxed in the natural position. After continually relaxing the muscle and putting it back in its natural position after time it starts to automatically relax and stay in its natural state or position. Like the old saying goes Practice makes perfect.
At Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works I have a therapeutic massage package to help you with any chronic pain and help your muscle memory return to its natural state.
I am a professional certified massage therapist dedicated to helping clients feel better with massage. Call or Text 760 680 7910 for your appointment or book online at Massage Book ...

 Cannabis-Infused Massage 
Massage can be soothing for both body and the mind. A Professional Massage Therapist knows where exactly to start to relax and relieve the stressed muscles. People prefer and use different types of oils for massage because of the health benefits associated with each type of massage. What is more intriguing is that most people do not know that one of the best ways to uplift the health benefits of massage is to use cannabis infused massage oil.  
In states where cannabis is legalized, you can find Massage Therapists offering cannabis infused massage.  
Having that said, some of you might be thinking that cannabis massage will get you high but it won’t. It is simply because of the fact that this oil will not make it into the bloodstream, thus you don’t have to worry about that.  
Benefits of Cannabis Infused Massage Oil  
There are tons of amazing health benefits of cannabis infused massage oil. Some of them are: 
  • Anti-inflammatory Properties – Getting a massage from a professional practitioner can be soothing because of the anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces the pain and inflammation in the muscles.  
  • Senses are relaxed – Using cannabis infused oil for a massage will stimulate your skin and senses just like getting your skin high.  
  • Makes the Skin Healthier – A cannabis infused oil contains fatty acids and other healthy compounds that can nourish and strengthen the skin. It leaves a glowing effect to the skin and makes it lighter in tone.  
  • Muscles Relaxation – Cannabis infused oil massage can stimulate the skin which helps the muscles to relax. This eases pain and tension in the muscles and is an excellent way to decompress at the end of the day.  

These are some of the best benefits of using cannabis infused oil for a massage. All these properties combine to create a unique companion for a massage. The health benefits of this massage oil are not limited to the person getting the massage only. The practitioner also gets to enjoy these benefits through their hands. The job of a massage practitioner is very demanding and hectic. The use of cannabis infused oil in massage will also help them stay active and energetic.  
You can also mix it with other essential oils to make it healthier for the skin. The use of this oil is not harmful to the skin in any way and does not possess any side effects as well.  
What you should make sure that the use of cannabis is legal in your state and you have a license to use cannabis. Having met these two requirements, you are ready to experience an all different massage that will boost your emotions, relax your muscles, give peace to your mind and soul and make you feel better.
 I encourage every one of you to experience a massage and get all those benefits a massage has for you!!
