Self Healing Massage to do Daily
You can massage yourself daily so that you can make it through the day more efficiently.
Massage your head hits a lot of pressure points that keep you more alert. Helps to increase you circulation, out with the old in with the new. This also helps to increase the the brain’s circulation, meaning it makes it easier to think. You can massage you head with you finger tips, you can also scratch you scalp which also stimulates activity. If you don’t want to mess up your hair, be gentle.
You can also massage you neck, which is where a lot stress is carried in the body. When you neck gets stiff, it can cause headaches as well as moving pain into the upper back. Never hold the phone with one shoulder, get an ear piece if you need to. Lets save our bodies the torture. By massaging you head and neck you can promote a restful night’s sleep later, important for rejuvenation.
Stretch your upper back.
You can pull your left should all the way to the right, then you can pull your right shoulder all the way to the left. When are on the computer all day, our shoulders get locked up and stiff. This help you keep your mobility as well as bringing blood and nutrients to that area of the body. Some hand a forearm pain starts in the upper back and make you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulder. Take the globe off of your shoulders! If this area gets too tight, it is time to get a massage from someone who knows what they are doing.
Massage your forearms
Your forearm suffer from all that typing as well, so give them some attention. You can lay your forearm on the table and apply compression to them several time. Once again this get the blood flowing as well as relaxing the muscle. The will help you work a little longer, I know sometimes we don’t want to do that, however this will also alleviate future pain. If you are prone to carpal tunnel or arthritis, this will slow the progression of this discomfort.
Obviously one of the best things you can do is get up and walk around and stretch 3 to 4 times a day. The other thing you can do is bug your boss to bring a massage therapist to the office once a week. If you cant convince you boss of this then doing these things several times a day will help keep you a little healthier. When you take a shower and put on lotion, give yourself a little rub down while you are applying the lotion. Very good for circulation. If you are increasing you circulation naturally, you are forcing new cells to come and promoting a younger you.
