Neuromuscular Trigger Point Massage in Hermosa Beach: Does Your Shoulder Click, Grind, or Hurt?
Trigger points in your rotator cuff and shoulder muscles, such as your supraspinatus, subscapularis, and infraspinatus muscles, are often the source of the clicks, grinding, and pain you feel in your shoulder joint. Unresolved trigger points in your shoulder predispose it to tearing, limited range of motion, and injury. Studies show Neuromuscular Trigger Point Therapy helps end shoulder pain, clicking, or grinding, and helps when you’re no longer able to do simple household chores, scratch your back, comb hair, or reach upwards. If you want to get lasting relief from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, and more, then call and book neuromuscular massage today, we service Hermosa Beach and the entire South Bay!

Wellness/Prevention: Start Brushing Habits Early.
To instill lifelong habits to protect one’s smile, experts recommend that tooth brushing begin early in childhood. To accomplish this, the American Academy of Pediatrics advises the following: wipe your baby’s gums with a soft, clean washcloth; never give your baby a bottle in the crib; introduce solid healthy food choices to avoid tooth decay; brush your child’s teeth twice daily until the age of three using a smear of toothpaste the size of a grain of rice; and children age three and older should be able to brush their teeth twice daily by themselves with adult supervision using a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
