How to relieve neck and shoulder pain

When you’re experiencing neck and shoulder pain it can be so uncomfortable that you can’t focus on anything else. It gets difficult to focus on work, family or even activities that you enjoy like reading a book or completing a CrossFit WOD.

Neck and shoulder pain can be related to a number of things such as sleeping positions, not stretching before a workout, excessive computer use, bad posture or stress. Some of our clients with chronic neck and shoulder pain have found relief from stress and migraines with the help of consistent massage therapy.

Neck and shoulder massage therapy is a safe and effective treatment for common neck and shoulder pain. At Spa La Posada, our Neck & Shoulder Tension Relief Massage incorporates a variety of massage techniques to provide immediate release of muscle tension. Our therapists can also show you stretches that can be done on a daily basis to provide even further relief.

Our professional massage therapists recommend 25-minute treatments twice a week for the first 4 weeks to see results.

Benefits of neck and shoulder massage:

  • -Reduces pain and relieves pressure on nerves
  • -Increases neck and shoulder range of motion
  • -Promotes relaxation and reduces stress
  • -Helps prevent future strain
  • -Increases the level of oxygen in your blood leading to a decrease in muscle toxins
  • -Natural management of chronic pain

Brides Rule! Help her decompress and ease her pre-wedding jitters and tensions

IMG2081083642

Bachelorette parties are a celebration of a bride-to-be’s last days of being single. Spa La Posada is a wonderful place for female bonding, and the party flows seamlessly.

When Vanessa, one of our gorgeous clients, was looking for an alternative to the stereotypical bachelorette party, she chose to schedule a pampering day for herself and her bridal party at Spa La Posada.

Vanessa and eight lovely ladies experienced their first Bachelorette Spa Party and indulged in Swedish massages, hydrating body cocoons, hot stone massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures.

They enjoyed wine, mimosas, cucumber water, coffee, hors d’oeuvres and seriously felt like VIPs, which they are!

Spa La Posada is available to host private parties including bridal showers, bachelorette parties and bachelor parties. For brides-to-be and grooms-to-be desiring a couples retreat prior to the big day, we can certainly accommodate a romantic getaway as well.

Contact 956-687-7544 in McAllen or 956-412-6363 in Harlingen to make spa party reservations.
