Hug Away Discomfort in the Shoulder Blades

May 12, 2015

Tension between the shoulder blades is even more common than I thought. Last week alone I had six clients tell me they had discomfort in that area. Having just finished my latest YouTube video (which coincidentally features this very problem), I had each client go through the lesson from the video. In every case s/he found relief from the discomfort.

The video, How to Relieve the Ache Between Your Shoulders, says it all so I’ll move to the side and let you participate along with me. It’s a great little strategy to use when you’ve been sitting at the computer, gardening or a multitude of other activities that often cause mid-back discomfort. Enjoy!
