1) It reduces Stress
"Most of us are dealing with some level of postural stress", says Zhanna Root, registered massage therapist and owner at Ultimum Vitae Wellness Center in Princeton, NJ.
“More often than not that stress tends to manifest in the shoulders, neck and lower back.”
Office workers, beware. More advanced forms of postural stress “show up as pain or weakness in the low back and gluteals caused by prolonged periods of sitting.”
Luckily, massage can correct the imbalance caused from sitting, which means you can keep your desk job—as long as you schedule a regular massage.
