Massage Self Care
Apparently, “desk butt” is the real deal and we see it all the time in our practice at Gelous Spa.  Muscular imbalances happen when you have been sitting at a desk for long periods of time. The hip flexors (front of thighs) and low back are just some of the muscles that are impacted on a daily basis.  Sitting all day long with no breaks isn’t good for anyone and we see clients with sore low backs and sore butts on a daily basis.  We decided to put together a few tips to help relieve your “desk butt” in between your visits with us:

Take a stand! 
Time flies when you get stuck into your work day. Remind yourself (or set an alert on your computer) to stand up at least once per hour to stretch at your desk.  Better yet, get up and go for a quick walk.  Not only will it get your muscles working and your blood flowing it will help you regain your focus.

Drink up!
The first people reach for when they feel tired is coffee or caffeinated drinks, especially late afternoon.  We know it can be easy to knock back the coffee and soda throughout the day, but instead of doing this reach for the water instead.  Your body will thank you for it!

Are you sitting properly?
So many organizations now offer staff an ergonomic set up so take advantage of this and ask your supervisor if you can be evaluated to ensure your office chair fits you.  Even if you work from home, it is worth the investment to ensure you have a good desk set up.  You can’t put a price on your health.

Take a Break!
This goes back to the first tip.  Value your body and mind and give yourself breaks throughout the day. Not only does doing this give yourself a break from “desk butt”, but you are giving yourself time to refill the energy tank and deal with stressful issues head on.
