Neck and Back Pain from Sitting at a Desk All Day: Massage Will Help
Does your Monday through Friday world consist of a desk, a phone, a computer, and a well-used chair? When you get out of your office chair at the end of a long day, do you feel as sore and tired as if you’ve just played a few rounds of volleyball or moved furniture? It’s no secret that desk jobs can wreak havoc on your body. With a whopping 80% of us who work at jobs that are either sedentary or else require only light activity (compared to a mere 20% in 1960), the neck strains, slouching, and shoulder pain are an unfortunate reality for many of us. So how can you prevent desk job aches and pains without switching jobs?
For starters take a look at the position of your computer screen. Ideally, you should not have to bend your neck to look at your screen. If using a laptop, connecting to a different, eye-level monitor is a great idea or placing it in a raised platform. Over time, the extra, added stress to your neck from being tilted to gaze at a traditional laptop screen can lead to permanent damage and degeneration to your neck. Ditto for phone screens. Try to lessen the amount of time your head is bent down while you’re texting, or otherwise looking at your phone. For every degree that your neck is bent forward, a surprising amount of weight is added onto your neck.
Even after trying to set your chair at the right height, getting wrist-cushions for your keyboard, and utilizing a phone headset, you can still suffer day-to-day strains and stresses on your body. Keeping up with regular visits to your massage therapist can help heal the aches and pains you experience. Whether he or she is breaking up and lengthening the knotted muscles in your neck and shoulders, working the strains out of your hands and wrists, or working on the knots at the base of your back, massages are crucial to office work wellness.
Once your tendons and muscles are healed from their office-related aches, regular massage can keep your muscles loosened, lengthened, and soothed, and can prevent future injuries. Bonus: massage can also help promote proper posture, and avoid permanent "desk slouch."

Massage Therapy’s Loving Role in Heart Health

Heart Disease

Heart disease typically refers to conditions that impact the blood vessels such as coronary artery disease, heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias) and congenital heart defects that the patient is born with. Cardiovascular disease typically covers conditions such as blocked or clogged blood vessels, which can lead to chest pain (angina), heart attack or stroke.
There are many causes of heart disease, including congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, diabetes, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, high blood pressure, and stress. While there is little that can be done about congenital heart conditions, lifestyle choices often have significant impact on heart health. A healthy diet, avoiding drugs, alcohol, and smoking, and regular exercise can go a long way to maintaining a healthy heart.

Stress and Anxiety

Often, heart disease begins to develop as a result of long-term, chronic stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety raise levels of stress hormones: adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones cause an increase in the rate of breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. These reactions are to equip your body for the “flight-or-fight” response. When you are under stress for days, weeks or years at a time, this constant ramped up demand on the heart begins to cause serious damage. Studies also link stress to changes in the way blood clots, which increases the risk of heart attack.

Massage Can Help Manage Stress and Anxiety

Massage has been shown to be excellent in managing stress and anxiety because it addresses two important aspects of the condition:

1. Lack of restorative sleep
2. Pain from chronic muscle tension

Massage therapy has been proven to reduce stress and improve sleep quality and quantity in children, cancer patients and fibromyalgia sufferers. By improving sleep in patients suffering from stress and anxiety, the body is able to recover and the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol are able to return to normal, if only temporarily.

Massage for Pain Relief

Massage has also been shown to significantly reduce pain levels for a variety of conditions from arthritis to chronic muscle pain from fibromyalgia. When we are in pain, the stress response is activated and cortisol and adrenaline are released, bringing on a state of stress. We begin to feel anxious and become unable to relax as we become more and more “wound up.” This stress response also puts a strain on the heart, eventually causing damage.

Studies on Massage for Stress, Pain and Heart Health

Massage therapy, and Swedish massage in particular, has been shown in several studies to bring about a reduction of stress, anxiety, and pain, as well as improved sleep.
A study of massage therapy on hypertensive women showed that over four weeks, Swedish massage therapy was shown to significantly reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
Another study of children who had heart disease demonstrated that massage therapy was beneficial for those who had undergone heart surgery, reducing blood pressure and pain.
In yet another study, massage was shown to bring about an average systolic pressure reduction of 10.4 mm Hg (p<0.06), a diastolic pressure reduction of 5.3 mm Hg (p<0.04), a mean arterial pressure reduction of 7.0 mm Hg (p<0.47), and an average heart rate reduction of 10.8 beats per minute (p<0.0003).

While many heart conditions cannot be avoided, massage therapy has been shown to significantly aid in reducing stress and anxiety in both congenital heart conditions, including those heart and cardiovascular conditions brought on by lifestyle factors.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is one of our most popular forms of massage. Depending on how it's performed, it can be therapeutic, relaxing, or stimulating. Massage is performed directly on the body using a variety of materials, such as massage oil, massage cream, talcum powder, or medicated ointment. Your therapist will use a variety of techniques, including:

Effleurage - lightly touching the body to warm up muscles
Friction - rubbing one surface quickly over another to create heat
Petrissage - kneading muscles to increase circulation
Tapotement - tapping on the body to release tension from deep muscles

These techniques work together to relax and rejuvenate tired muscles. The regular use of this type of massage can help improve your mood, correct bone-structure changes, and stretch your ligaments and tendons, keeping your body flexible and supple. This massage will leave you feeling less tense along your spine, back, and neck, as well as reducing stress. In fact, Swedish massage is often used in stress management programs. It also gives your skin a healthy glow because the increased blood flow helps your skin receive more nutrients.
