Massage for Postural Problems by massage therapist, Tia

Our posture suffers the most from the daily grind, it’s something that we don’t really notice until we look in the mirror or someone points it out to us. Posture is the position in which someone holds their body whilst standing and sitting. It is extremely common to have a postural disorder, particularly in this new age of technology.

Let me paint you a picture; remember that day in the coffee shop hunched over a warm cup of coffee staring at your computer replying to emails, working hard; and later in the day, you noticed your neck was hurting and/or you were experiencing some headaches. This is from your posture.

How To Relieve Back Pain?

Back pain… whether it’s a temporary thing or you’ve suffered for many years, it can be truly debilitating. And the problem (amongst many) is that it affects almost everyone at some point in our lives. It could be with us because of an injury (old or new), it could be a symptom of old age, it could even be because of bad posture at work. It’s a hugely common problem, but that doesn’t mean that people immediately know how to deal with it.

Thankfully, though, there are some good ways that back pain can be at least relieved, if not removed altogether. Here are just a few ideas that don’t involve popping painkiller and making things worse by trying to simply ignore the pain.

Excellence vs Striving by John Richardson

There’s a fantastic comparison for modern day life which is ‘Excellence vs Striving’. The thought of striving is to work hard and finding the rhythm to perform at a high level,strive success but it also portrays one where you are straining and really working to accomplish your targets and goals. On the other hand, excellence is where you do the best you possible can in a given moment. It’s the best you had to offer at the time which is all anyone can ever ask of you. This doesn’t make excellence the easier route though by any means, but Striving and Excellence do work hand in hand. If you strive and strive without any rest, you are likely to burn out. If you strive and work hard but team that up with excellent technique and self-care, which puts you in a pretty good state to take on the world!
