Why Sitting Causes Lower Back Pain

Poor Circulation

Sitting for prolonged periods of time has been proven to be detrimental for lower back pain. In fact, according to the American Massage Therapy Association, sitting for long periods of time can lead to a host of medical issues such as increased stress, poor circulation, and muscle degeneration. 

Additionally, it can cause postural problems, which can lead to lower back pain. Thankfully, the benefits of massage therapy can provide relief from the aches and pains associated with sitting for long hours. Massage therapy helps to improve posture by loosening the tight muscles in the back, neck, and shoulders. This, in turn, helps the body to maintain a more balanced and comfortable position. 

Inflammation Caused By Stress

Furthermore, massage can help to reduce inflammation and pain by increasing circulation to the affected areas. Moreover, massage can help to reduce stress levels and improve overall mood. Studies have shown that massage can lower cortisol levels and reduce the amount of stress hormones in the body. This can help to relax the body and reduce any tension that is affecting the lower back. In conclusion, it is clear that sitting for long hours can lead to lower back pain and other medical issues. 

Tension From Sitting

Furthermore, sitting can cause tension in the lower back. However, massage therapy can provide relief from the pain and tension associated with sitting for too long. It can help to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and relax the muscles. So, if you are struggling with lower back pain due to sitting for long periods of time, consider trying massage therapy as an effective way to reduce pain and tension.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.
