Many of us find ourselves spending a significant portion of the day sitting at a desk, if you add another few hours of driving, then sitting in-front of the TV and your mobile phone, you can see that this modern sedentary lifestyle comes at a significant cost. Prolonged periods of sitting can take a toll on our physical well-being. Everything from a stiff neck, sore shoulders to lower back pain and tight hip flexors, the physical impact of your desk job is undeniable.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of many people’s jobs, this is largely unavoidable. However, it is important to be conscious about your body position and take the necessary steps to prevent any poor posture. Fortunately, we can help! A great way to combat the physical impact of a non-active lifestyle is to consider trying a Deep Tissue Massage here at the Wellbeing Chiropractic Health Centre.
The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic technique, that focuses on targeting the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, which aims to alleviate tension commonly known as ‘knots’ in these muscles. This type of massage can have a profound effect on the body, particularly for those grappling with the physical toll of a desk job.
Deep Tissue Massage can work to correct the postural misalignment caused by spending hours sat incorrectly and improve muscle elasticity. This can lead to further benefits such as increasing muscle range of motion and flexibility; it can also help you release any built-up tension or stress associated with work.
The physical and mental toll of sitting for work all day is a concern that cannot be ignored, therefore by incorporating a Deep Tissue Massage into your routine this could have a positive effect to your overall wellbeing. We have many clients in the practice who use Massage Therapy along with Chiropractic, the combination of poor posture, muscle tension, and reduced mobility can lead to chronic pain and discomfort, so isn’t it about time you made a change and took the necessary steps to improve the way you feel now and in the future?!
