Benefits of Massage
Massage is especially effective in breaking compensatory postures & related pain. For example, a tension headache is often self sustaining, the pain causes the person to clench & tense the affected muscles, which in turn creates more pain and so the cycle goes on...
'Desk workers, are at higher risk of poor posture and poor circulation. More advanced forms of postural stress show up as pain or weakness in the lower back and gluteals caused by prolonged periods of sitting'
Modern day lifestyles and the increasing number of hours spent in front of a computer at work can lead to poor circulation and tension headaches.
Luckily...massage can counteract the imbalance caused from sitting, which means you can keep your desk job!....as long as you schedule a regular massage.
