During this pandemic, we know that many have been affected if not physically than mentally. 

We understand that not everyone is being affected the same. Anxiety is something that everyone is going through some more than others and this ultimately affects people physically. Anxiety increases stress which later converts to physical pain that is presented as tension. Many will notice that their backs will start to hurt or that they are having frequent headaches or stiff muscles.  

To help deal with some of the pain issues you can do these techniques on your own at home you can use a rigid foam roller on your legs, arms, and back. For foot pain a tennis ball rolled along all three arches of the feet can help release fascial tension.

These, of course, are only vague samples of what you can do while being at home with things you might already have in your own home. Of course, these exercises should not be painful during any point if it is causing pain then we suggest for you to stop. These exercises are not intended to relieve your pain indefinitely but to help you alleviate some of the discomforts. When the time comes to scheduling your massage then you will see that getting a full massage is the best thing that you can do. This will help you alleviate a lot of the mental strain that had come from being at home. Massage will make you feel relieved not only physically but mentally as well.
