Massage Therapy Information

Most job requirements cause wear on the body, from repetitive movements or stagnant positions such as:

            Sitting at a desk/ computer/ machinery/or over a person as in dentistry for long periods.

      Standing at a work station/ lab/ till/ kitchen/ bar or in operating room in one position for long periods;

      Carrying equipment/ laptops/ books/ briefcases or other paraphernalia.

      Lifting, moving & stocking shelves/ racks/ trucks/ cars/ factories.

      Bending to reach equipment or books on low shelves.

      Waiting on tables.

    Stress-induced habits such as clenching your jaw or tightening your muscles only serve to compound the damage done.
