Is your job causing you tension and stress both physically and mentally? Are you doing enough to unwind and relax at the end of your tough week at work? Your tired and tense body may not be thanking you for sitting behind that desk all day long, but there is a perfect remedy for work-related tension and stress - massage.
Kris McIntyre runs yoga retreats at Peppers Salt Resort & Spa, Kingscliff. She says neck, shoulder, and back pain are the most common ailments her guests suffer from.
“Sitting at computers all day is definitely a culprit. The shape of our body makes sitting at a desk a similar posture to being on all fours so it no wonder that we are not feeling great,” Kris says.
However the right therapeutic massage releases endorphins, creating a euphoric feeling, allowing your body to de-stress and untangle from the positions it gets put in during the workday.
If reading this strikes a nerve (or muscle twitch) and you feel some massage therapy is in order, why not plan your next holiday at one of our many destinations with dedicated massage facilities?
