For today's post - just something I'm excited about and wanted to share!
Thanks to someone in my very generous support system (I won't name names, just know that I'm very blessed!) I received a Portable Massage Chair last night! I plan to use it for the first time when I go to Volunteer next Tuesday the 22nd at the Community Heath Action of Staten Island Health Fair! It's also going to be wonderful to have when I go out to infiltrate some New York offices with my hard learned massage skills!
David Palmer, co-developer of the first massage chair and founder of the TouchPro Institute in San Francisco says: Most office-related physical symptoms can be attributed to loss of circulation. Tight muscles caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day, especially at a work station that is not ergonomically designed, can impede blood and lymph flow through the body. The result is mental fogginess, decreased energy and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome.Chair massage counters the circulatory problems inherent with office work—and provide a appreciated break for employees. Sitting in a massage chair opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the neck and provides a gentle respite for eyes usually glued to a computer monitor. Even 15 minutes of massage to the neck, back, arms and hands can increase circulation, returning energy levels and helping keep the body injury free.
Wahoo for more ways to help give people the relief they need!
