I would like to announce my new blog series for 2014. This series will focus on the most commonly encountered problem areas and their muscle groups so that you can understand why so many of us have issues with these areas and how to deal with them effectively.
I have chosen the six most commonly encountered problem areas to focus on in these blog posts. The effects of stress on these areas will be very familiar to most of you. Here at Corey Proffitt Studios Massage, I repeatedly see these problem areas on the vast majority of my clients and that has given me the impetus to write these blogs. I want to help people beyond my client base to be aware of these areas, have tools to deal with these problems and to be able to ask for help with these areas from their care-givers and body workers. Further, for those who pursue physical therapy or a movement system such as Yoga there will be poses and movements within those systems that can assist in the relaxation and restoration of these problematic muscle groups.
I would like to list the six areas that I will be covering. They are 1.) The lower back with a focus on the Quadratus Lumborum; 2.) The upper legs with a focus on the Hamstrings; 3.) The pelvic girdle and hips with a focus on the Psoas and sacroiliac interface; 4.) The upper back with a focus on the trapezius; 5.) The shoulders and chest with a focus on the subclavius; 6.) The neck with a focus on the sternocleidomastoid muscles.

For those familiar with the human musculoskeletal system, you may note that many of these are minor muscle groups, but for that reason, they are often overlooked and allowed to become major sources of imbalance and discomfort. It is my goal to bring these areas to your attention so that you can become more aware of them and be sure that they receive the attention and care they need and deserve.
As with any aspect of body care and maintenance, you will need to consult a qualified physician or physical therapist if you believe you have a major problem with any of these areas. These upcoming blog posts are meant to be educational, helping you to be aware of their impact on the homeostasis of your body, and are not in any way meant to be diagnostic.
I look forward to offering you these posts and I hope you will find them both educational and interesting. It is my goal to help you to better understand you. Best wishes for the New Year and may your body be well and balanced! By: Corey Proffitt
