Our sedentary and busy lifestyles can easily result in tension and stress accumulating in the body. This is particularly so with the back and neck muscles. A build up of tension in these muscles will often present as an aching, tight or burning feeling.
Postural Stress – Anyone spending long stretches in front of a computer will likely be dealing with some kind of postural stress. Not many of us manage to maintain good posture in front of a computer screen. Even if we manage to maintain good posture, it is still an unnatural position for us to maintain for any period of time let alone a full working day. Postural stress can result in pain, tension or weakness in the neck and back muscles.
The Effect of Emotional Stress and Anxiety on the Body – Stress and anxiety are not only emotional states but are a huge contributor to physical ill health. A stressed emotional state can often exacerbate an underlying physical issue. Stress can also result in muscular tension and ache gradually accumulating in the body until it gets to the stage where it is causing pain and stiffness.
The Benefits of Massage to You – Massage can contribute to counteracting all the sitting you do. A therapeutic massage can increase and restore circulation to stiff tired muscles. It can relax and soften overused and tense muscles.
While massage therapy will not reduce your stress load directly, massage can enable you to physically relax, stop and rest, be in the moment. The value of taking time out just for you should not be under estimated. The benefits of massage also include enhanced sleep, reduced anxiety, increased energy and improved concentration.
Sports Massage – Sports massage is a deep tissue style of massage and can be beneficial to all types not just those participating in sports. It can address deep and long standing tension than can accumulate in muscles over time.
