Your body is telling you something. Are you listening?
As I have been practicing more yoga in 2017, I am reminded that my body speaks to me every single day–especially during an hour class of taking yoga. Each movement indicates whether or “knot” it is a preferred stance, pose and activity.
Not only that, my body speaks to me whether I am sitting at my desk, walking outside or doing common household chores. We move constantly through the day and our body is expected to cooperate 24/7 with each activity regardless of routine or comfort.
As many of us work at a desk or within a cubicle, we are stationary and sedentary for sometimes hours on end with long projects and/or conference calls. Often clients tell me that a “bad habit” of office workers is that they often tuck one leg under their seat to nestle into the long days of office work. This particular “bad habit” allows for a shift in body weight and posture which has lasting effects on our already strained muscles. All these habits have a cumulative effect on our bodies, minds and comfort levels.
Often while at the desk, our back muscles tend to be over-stretched while our chest tends to be shortened to accommodate odd positions (for sometimes hours!) at our workstations.
So, I ask – what are you doing to combat less movement each day? Chair yoga is an option along with other activities to decrease stress and increase productivity and mental clarity.
Walking during lunch is another tried and true option to clear the mind and bring on movement and a fresh perspective.
Of course, chair massage is (our) preferred option for all the reasons you know and have been stated time and time again within my blogs! A quick session to settle into on-site chair massage will bring pain-relief, stress relief along with some “kneaded” relaxation. Wellness services are always bring value and appreciation.
One client just sent this review after I worked on her recently.
A great review for Massage Kneads’ client about chair massage in Maryland
“Janet is very knowledgeable and is not afraid to dig in if you like it! I did 15 minutes this time, and will be doing a 30 minute session every month from now on!
I highly recommend it every time as I want to take advantage of this benefit. It was extremely enjoyable and a fantastic way to take a break during the work day!”
Imagine how your body language would change at the end of the day with a little down time in the office to refresh and rejuvenate vs. singing the same old song!
On-site Chair massage works to relieve back and neck pain as well as is stress-relieving and productivity-increasing.
If on-site corporate chair massage sounds like a program that can be incorporated into your business and wellness program, I hope to hear from you. Please buzz me, Janet Constantino, CEO of Massage Kneads, at 404-664-3221.
Escape. Experience. Enjoy.
