Have you ever considered this question: Why do shoulder rubs feel so good?

First of all, you can’t deny the need most of us have for human contact…most of us spend our days trying to not bump into people. So when we do get human contact it’s a nice change in the day that satisfies our basic need for socialization.

Second, you often hear of people carrying their tension in their shoulders. Actors often portray uptight people as keeping their shoulders up, and that’s because tension causes our defenses to rise and to swell up, as if ready for a fight.

Tension also settles in the shoulders because of the way we work. While it may be good to hold your wrists off the table as we type, it pulls our shoulders forward into an unnatural position. Combine that with the bad posture that many of us have when we sit and the shoulders become a focal point of tension.
