Having a massage is often viewed as an indulgent treat, but a good massage is also very powerful and can help to improve a range of issues that can cause discomfort.
The person carrying out a massage may be able to identify some surprising insights into a person’s anatomy and posture, daily activity and even general health.
What Your Massage Reveals About your Daily Life
- Sitting at a desk – Classically results in a weaker lower back, evidenced by one hip being higher than the other. The glutes and legs are often tight too
- Driving – A lot of time driving tends to lead to a far-forward posture and hunched shoulders.
- Phone use – Texters often have their heads pointed down, leading to tight and imbalanced shoulders.
- How you sleep – Sleeping on your front puts a strain on the neck which makes it feel tight when massaged.
- Feeling the cold – If you are constantly hunching shoulders against the cold, it can lead to stress in the neck and shoulders. Common in winter.
- Exercise – Runners’ hips and the low back will feel tight, and you might also complain about tension in the bottom of the foot.
- Your Bag – Carrying a large bag on one shoulder can lead to your body being tighter on one side to compensate. Alternatively, if you carry a rucksack or backpack, the muscles in your shoulder blades become tight in response to the pressure.
