How To Fix Neck and Shoulder Posture

Good posture is essential for overall health and well-being, and the neck and shoulders are no exception. Therefore, it is important to understand the importance of proper neck and shoulder posture in relation to neck pain. Firstly, when your neck and shoulders are in a good posture, the head is balanced atop the spine. This allows the muscles in the neck, shoulders, and back to be in a relaxed state, reducing strain and stress on the joint. 

How does poor posture damage the neck?

Additionally, good posture can help protect the vertebrae in the neck from being damaged. Moreover, when the neck and shoulders are not in a good posture, the muscles can become tense and cause pain. This is because the muscles are trying to support the head and keep it in an upright position. In this scenario, the muscles become overworked, leading to tension and pain in the neck and shoulders. 

How does poor posture decreased blood flow?

Furthermore, poor posture can also lead to a decrease in blood flow to the neck, which can cause aches and pains. Additionally, poor posture can also change the curvature of the spine, leading to an increase in pressure on the joints and discs in the neck. Finally, good posture should be practiced throughout the day, not just during exercise or when standing. 

How to have good neck posture?

By regularly checking your posture and adjusting it accordingly, you can help protect your neck from pain and injury. Overall, having good neck and shoulder posture is vital for helping to reduce neck pain. Bring the head over the heart/torso to make sure you aren’t straining it. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to your posture throughout the day and make adjustments as necessary.

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!
