Massage therapy is known for relaxation and rejuvenation. Over the years people have come to realise that the benefits of massage are physical, mental and physiological.

As well as having massages for relaxation and rejuvenation, massages which help with posture correction have become popular. It’s not typically something we notice during everyday life, however, our lifestyles can take a toll on our mental and physical health. For example, studies prove that desk jobs lead to stooping of shoulders. It’s an easy habit to get into and the damage can happen gradually over time. Unless you make a constant effort to correct it, it may become permanent.

In such situations posture correction massages can prove beneficial. The special techniques of strokes and pressure lead to getting that hump on your back away or ease out your shoulders leading to a better posture. Sometimes bad posture is also the result of fat deposition on the back and belly. Massage can help to reduce this fat, in turn helping to correct your posture.

There is nothing like a good massage to loosen overworked muscles affected by poor posture. When done right, a good posture correction massage can ease the body, encouraging it to relax into its natural alignment while reducing the pain. Postural realignment techniques make use of specific techniques such as trigger point therapy, muscle stretching, joint mobilisation etc.

So next time you are heading to your massage therapist you can always take advantage of this technique and get more benefit out of your massage. Get in touch with us at Balima Day Spa to learn more about this kind of massage.
