Functional assessment and dynamic, informed treatment. It’s healthcare, for your muscles.

    Stand Up! (Massage Therapy Awareness Week)

    Some people compare sitting to smoking in terms of how it is for your health. It may not necessarily be that bad; however, it’s also not harmless.

    Many people who work office jobs are sitting for the majority of their day, which may cause neck and lower back pain along with other musculoskeletal  discomfort. There are many ways you are able to reduce the strain on your body, including adjusting the height of your chair and monitor, adjusting the arms on your chair and taking breaks! Taking breaks to stand up and stretch will also help reduce fatigue. It may be helpful to set a timer for every 30 minutes reminding you to get up move around for a minute.

    Massage can help if you’re already experiencing pain related to sitting too much.  In a recent study, individuals with back pain who received massage therapy had less pain and were better able to perform daily activities than those who didn’t receive massage. Your range of motion may be increased, which will allow you to perform your daily tasks with a lot more ease and comfort.
