Massage therapy is an conservative yet effective approach for treating muscle and joint pains. It also helps to promote relaxation of the body and mind thereby relieving physical and mental stress.
In today’s workplace, the accumulation of physical and mental stresses is the result of how much time we spend sitting and processing information on desktop or notebook computers, tablets, and smart phones… and lets not forget how much time is spent sitting in traffic each week. The build up of these physical and mental stresses over time can potentially lead to:
Neck pain caused from postural strain e.g. “text neck”
Headache (caused from accumulated tension in the shoulders, neck, jaw, and cranial muscles)
Repetitive strain/overuse disorders or injuries of the forearms, wrist, and fingers from typing and texting
Back pain and general stiffness from sitting all day
Feelings of anxiety, depression, low energy, and burnout
Massage therapy can be used as a strategy, customized to each client’s particular needs, to help them manage and solve these problems. The basic goals of each session is to help you relieve muscular tension, reduce the experience of muscle and joint pain, stimulate circulation, improve joint range of motion, restore function to joints and muscles, and relieve both physical and mental stress.
