I'm one of those people with annoying neck problems. For those of you with back or neck issues, you know how this impedes your life in little ways. I've found a few ways of managing it over the years. A combination of Yoga, regular exercise and stretching at work (I look really weird on the floor of my office) are big for me. Most important though is I mix massages in from the amazing Julie True!
Julie has been giving me massages for the last seven years (excluding my time in Chicago) and she is hands down the best. I go in to her studio a little broken down from the chronic pain and I leave with a smile on my face, both from the massage and from the positive energy she radiates. I can't recommend her enough. If you suffer, go see her.
