If you're the type of person who is always cold, regardless of the time of the year, you know that you can struggle to be comfortable. Often, you can feel better when you're clad in several layers of clothing, but this approach isn't exactly practical when you book a treatment with your registered massage therapist. Part of the reason you visit a massage therapist is for relaxation, but you'll be anything but relaxed if you're cold and uncomfortable during the treatment.
If you've started to have tingling or sharp back pain that radiates down your buttocks and legs, you may have sciatica, or pressure on the sciatic nerve (the longest nerve in your body, which runs down from your back to your feet). Sciatica can make it difficult for you to do everyday tasks and even sleep at night, so you will want to take care of it as soon as possible.
