Upper Body Opening Workshop
Friday 17th May - 5.30-7.00pm
Do you sit all day at a desk or are you challenged with bad posture, head aches, back and shoulders pain?
All of these symptoms are generally caused by a poor mobility in the upper body or an imbalance in strength vs flexibility in muscles. Stress and lack of movements are generally the root cause of the problem.
Tight shoulders especially along the trapezius muscles, carries more tension than anywhere else in the entire body. While your shoulders tension is often linked to stress, it's only a small part of the whole picture.
According to Darragh Dunleavy S.C., founder of Trinity Wellness, your tight shoulders and stiff neck may be telling you something on a physical, energetic, and an emotional level. For those of you with chronic tension in this part of the body, it might be time to make some changes. She contends that much of the tension stems from our lifestyle choices like sitting at a desk all day as well as scrolling through our smartphones, driving, and even the way we sleep.
“We sit too often and many of us have bad posture,” says Dunleavy. “The head juts forward and the spine slumps over. And since we do it so often, we begin thinking that the tension is normal, but it’s not.”
