Our modern work environments mean that most of us sit day-in and day-out. Using a computer at a desk can take a big toll on your health. The posture employed when sitting for hours on end is one that lends itself to creating sore necks, chronic back pain, slumped shoulders, carpal tunnel, tension headaches, and more.
To negate the harsh health impacts of today’s screen-tethered lifestyle, massage is a great tool to add to your wellness toolbox. Here’s how it works:
Through the application of pressure and manipulation employed by one of our expert massage therapists, massage can work to restore the natural alignment of your body. It can counter the slumped shoulders, it can release the tight wrists, it can address the aches and pains in your neck from looking at a screen. Massage works to elongate your posture, stretch muscles, encouraging both range of motion and healthy body mechanics.
Other benefits of regular massage for the 9-5ers include:
- Promotes mental acuity
- Restores energy
- Encourages ability to focus
- Stimulates blood flow
- Boost immune system
- Releases aches and pains
When it comes to your health, it’s important to prioritize your mind/body connection.
If you are stuck at a desk, which is the vast majority of the population, be sure to be mindful of your habits. Don’t forget to get up every now and then, take a brief walk and stretch.
