Going for massage therapy is something that I really enjoy, whether I am alone or with the company of friends. Work has been so demanding lately as our boss required us to spend overtime due to last month’s low productivity report. Without a choice, my department has to stay in the office two hours more beyond 5pm. We have finally reached our goal and so it’s about time we give ourselves a break.
One full week of increased workload led us to a weekend of massage therapy. Little did I know that some of my colleagues were already planning for a much-needed massage. Indeed, last Saturday was a blast. Five of us met at the physiotherapy clinic near our office and spent a few hours of thorough stress-relieving massage. Admittedly, we looked haggard before we entered the clinic but when the massage was done, we have transformed into better-looking human beings. Perhaps, everyone in the office needs this.
All five of us complained of back ache, neck pain, shoulder ache and migraine. Our therapist happily stated that we are just in the perfect place for treatment. He explained that our posture at work is one of the main reasons we are experiencing these symptoms. One position for a prolonged period hardens the muscles and disrupts the circulation of blood in the body. Hence, this needs to be corrected.
From deep kneading to stretching, we were certainly relieved of getting massage therapy. Most importantly, we are treated by professional therapists who are highly-trained and skilled in their craft. I can definitely say that when experts do the treatment, you are assured of getting cured. Although it doesn’t take overnight to be completely healed, there is an assurance that constant massage will bring our condition to a better light.
Going back to work last Monday was like a breath of fresh air. We were ready to face the week again and stress is no longer that difficult to handle. My colleagues and I agreed to go for massage therapy regularly from this time onwards.
Stress in the workplace can never be eliminated however, there are many things that you can do in order to combat this reality. One way is obtaining treatment from a certified physiotherapist. Massage St Kilda Road is just a few minutes away for a start. It’s great to work hard and earn big but it is more awesome to be in the best state of health. Otherwise, we cannot be an efficient employee.
