How Massage Can Help Improve Posture

When you sit in front of a computer screen all day, you may start to feel stiffness in your neck and shoulders. Even when your work station is set up to be ergonomically correct, you can still strain your muscles when you sit for too long. Over time, you can begin to develop poor posture. As your muscles, ligaments and tendons try to compensate because of the pain, your posture will suffer. 

Massage Therapy Reduces the Stress Caused from Prolonged Sitting

If your low back, neck or shoulders are in pain because of prolonged sitting, massage therapy is going to help. When you visit with a massage therapist, talk about the areas of your body that are causing you the most discomfort. When you are sitting for too long of a period, you cause unnecessary strain on your low back and shoulders. When you get a massage, those muscles will be worked on so that they are no longer stiff. This allows your posture to return to normal once your muscles aren't pulling your body out of position.

Improve Circulation with Massage Therapy

Good circulation helps sore muscles heal. If you feel tight in your neck and shoulders, a good massage is going to improve circulation in the area. With good blood flow delivered to your neck and shoulder muscles, the toxins in your muscles will be removed. Your muscles will be able to heal more quickly once a massage helps improve your circulation. You will get the oxygen and nutrients you need from your blood more quickly when your circulation is improved.

When you find yourself sitting all day at work and your posture is suffering, it's time to find a solution. With a good massage, you will be able to sit more comfortably at work and your posture won't suffer.
