Tight glutes and legs, that tell-tale forward roll of your shoulders and a weak lower back are all signs that you sit at a desk all day staring – most likely – at a PC screen.
If this sounds familiar, regular massages will certainly help and Ripple can deliver them right to your office while you remain seated and fully clothed. More on a massage in your office here.
3. You Are Super Stressed
At times you are so stressed out about being stressed out, that you can’t even remember why you’re stressed out and that too stresses you out.
When our a therapist arrives, it’s often quite obvious if the person is on edge and agitated.
At other times however there are no outward signs – but, during the introductory chat, anxious clients will often give us information that indicates stress and worry are at play.
When the massage begins all the signs are there. Our poor muscles become taut and tense during stressful times, especially so in the shoulders, neck and head.
Constant muscle tension causes aches and pains too so there are usually some tender areas as well.
Stress is a silent killer and finding ways to reduce it should be at the very top of your ‘to-do’ list. Some easy tips on how to ease stress are here.
4. Your Bra Is Too Small
We can see where your bra strap has been cutting into your shoulders and we can feel where those poor muscles have tightened as a reaction to the pressure.
Take the opportunity to be properly fitted next time you purchase a bra – your shape and posture will benefit and your back and shoulders will love it too.
5. Taxi, Truck Or Bus?
You drive for a living – that’s for sure – and you spend many hours a day behind the wheel.
That far-forward posture is a dead giveaway as are the hunched shoulders.
