is your bag causing you pain?
learn how massage can help
Carrying a bag on the shoulder causes contraction and overuse of the muscles, usually in the trapezius. The depression of the opposite shoulder causes curvature in the mid spine. Along with the spinal misalignment, the consistent contraction causes a major distortion in ones posture.
Massage therapy helps relax the overworked muscles and by breaking up the knots, realigning, muscularly, the shoulders, neck and back.
In between massage sessions, here are somethings one can do to decrease the tension:
clean out your bag regularly to decrease the weight
ditch the bag from time to time
choose a bag with two straps, like a bookbag, to evenly distribute the weight.
switch to a messenger bag or a bag with wider straps
