The Office Athlete: Office Workers and Massage Therapy

03 November 2020

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 for your body?

The answer: it is, and for many reasons.

It’s true, there is an awareness of the risks of poor posture. 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.  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.

Benefits include

  • 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.

A professional Registered Massage Therapist can not only provide the massage therapy you need but will work with you to develop your own self-care program to keep your body aligned and free from stress and pain.

Treatment of the common postural imbalance, Upper Crossed Syndrome targets the muscles commonly affected and helps to keep you in blance, to prevent reoccurance, despite being an office Athelete.
