Does your job involve sitting for long periods of time? Do you work at a computer? Then you've probably been through those workplace health and safety sessions on how NOT to sit.
You know the one; sit up straight, shoulders back, computer at the correct height. Easier said than done, right? The truth of the matter is, many of us slouch.
And what does that lead to? Yep, poor posture, stiff necks and bad backs. But there is a more enjoyable way to counteract this problem. And that's a remedial massage in Sydney.
Remedial massage works by releasing and lengthening your muscles, which balances the body and improves posture.
When we sit for a long time, slightly hunched over as we work on our computers, muscles contract and tighten, and that's what causes the pain and discomfort.
It can also lead to trigger point problems and referred pain. That means, a knotted or damaged muscle in your lower back can cause pain in your neck.
A remedial massage therapist will be able to pinpoint the real problem, and then treat all the affected areas. They may also be able to give you some tips on avoiding the discomfort in the first place.
And no, that doesn't mean you only need one massage a year. We humans are creatures of habit, and that refers to our ailments, too. They are called 'vicious circle' complaints.
In other words, we will go straight back to work and resume old (bad) habits, and we'll be back at square one.
For anyone who works at a computer, regular remedial massage is recommended. That way little issues can be fixed before they become big problems.
Oh well, at least now you can put that desk time to good use and book online for your next remedial massage in Sydney.
