Are you one of the unlucky ones who had to do the shoveling? We feel for you! It’s definitely very strenuous work.

No wonder It carries with it a high risk of injury. Reports say that being hit with the shovel, overworking muscles, falling, suffering from scrapes, cuts, sprains, and even breaking a bone are among the most common accidents. And I’m sure you’ve also heard that some people even die from a heart attack while shoveling snow due to the intense exercise. It is reported that in the US the number of heart attacks increases by 20% in the week following a heavy snow storm.

How are you feeling? Sore, tired, and in pain from clearing up all that snow?

We recommend you get a massage to ease the soreness, decrease pain in your arms, shoulders, neck and back, and help you recover and relax!
