Office workers need massage therapy just as much as athletes do. Maybe more!
It doesn’t seem physically hard, does it? You sit for eight hours a day in front of a computer. Maybe you walk to lunch, or down the hall to a meeting, but that’s about it. Now you ask, how can this be harmful to your body?
The answer: it is, and for many reasons.
Because it’s true, there is starting to be some awareness of the risks of poor posture. But even if you have an ergonomically correct chair and workstation, the risks remain high. It’s simply a matter of too many hours without full movement. Inevitably, you start to lean in toward the computer and slouch in your chair. This puts an increased strain on your lower back and neck – it’s inevitable. And as you repeat the same mistakes, day after day, your body’s structure can actually change, causing more long-term misalignment. Rounded shoulders, tightening of chest muscles, and more persistent pain, are some of the first signs you will notice.
Fortunately, there’s a way to deal with it: regular massage therapy treatments.
- Reducing stress
- Improved circulation
- Improved posture
- Fewer headaches
- Decreased muscle tension and pain
Along with massage therapy, you’ll benefit from stretching exercises, movement exercises, proper nutrition and just taking the time every day to allow your body to unwind and relax.
