Massage Helps Desk-Bound Workers
A stiff neck. Aching
wrists. Shoulders that feel as if someone folded them
up. Anyone who has ever sat behind a desk all day will
recognize the symptoms of workplace fatigue.
According to David
Palmer, co-developer of the first massage chair and
founder of the TouchPro Institute in San Francisco,
most office-related physical symptoms can be
attributed to loss of circulation. Tight muscles
caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day,
especially at a work station that is not ergonomically
designed, can impede blood and lymph flow through the
body. The result is mental fogginess, decreased energy
and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like
carpal tunnel syndrome.
Chair massage counters the circulatory problems
inherent with office work—and provide a appreciated
break for employees. Sitting in a massage chair
opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the
neck and provides a gentle respite for eyes usually
glued to a computer monitor.
minutes of massage to the neck, back, arms and hands
can increase circulation, returning energy levels and
helping keep the body injury free.
"When chair massage is used preventively, if you
have problems it allows you to maintain a homeostatic
balance that prevents the little problems from getting
worse," Palmer said.
