Pain in the hip area can be relieved by massage therapy. Massage can help to increase mobility in hip movement, relieve some pain and stress on the hip joint itself, and help assist correct pelvic alignment. Muscles can be so tight in the hip region that they present as symptoms of Sciatica. Your hips possess four groups of hip joint muscles that work together to allow movement; gluteal, lateral, abductor and iliopsoas. The muscles involved are known as the lateral rotators, or the “deep six.” These six muscles are situated deep within your buttocks, known as the gluteus maximus, and allow for external and internal hip rotation. Massaging the deep six is a good way to loosen your muscles.
A number of specific conditions causing lower back, hip and leg pain may respond well when treated with therapeutic massage. These include low back pain, sciatica, lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis, lumbar disk pathology, spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, facet joint irritation, neuromuscular pain, anterior pelvic tilt, posterior pelvic tilt, lateral pelvic tilt, trochanteric bursitis, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, piriformis syndrome, muscle strain and patellofemoral pain syndrome, and hamstring pulls, just to name a few!

This is what stress can do to you.
Signs and symptoms of chronic stress can include: irritability, which can be extreme. Fatigue, headaches, difficulty concentrating or an inability to do so; rapid heartbeat, disorganized thoughts, difficulty sleeping. You can experience digestive problems, changes in appetite. Stress can also affect the way food moves through your body, leading to diarrhea or constipation. You might also experience nausea, vomiting, or a stomach ache.
Your muscles tense up to protect themselves from injury when you’re stressed. They tend to release again once you relax, but if you’re constantly under stress; your muscles may not get the chance to relax. Tight muscles cause headaches, back and shoulder pain, and body aches. Over time, this can set off an unhealthy cycle as you stop exercising and turn to pain medication for relief.
