4 Key Spots to Massage for Better Posture

Due to the pandemic, many of us have been cooped up inside doing our work from home or sitting down watching tv on the couch. If you aren’t focusing on the position of your back the whole day, it might hurt after a while. This can be due to poor posture which can happen in a variety of different ways from working or even exercise. Due to poor posture, you may be experiencing an increased amount of pain, tightness of your muscles, and stiffness in your joints. Giving yourself a massage is a great way to ease your pain and get your body back to feeling good! The deep muscle massager is a personal handheld massage gun that can help you overcome muscle soreness, relive body fatigue, and combat stiffness. If you don’t know where you should be massaging to help with your posture and back pain, then you’ve come to the right place.

Due to our current lifestyles in the pandemic, technology has become more prominent, causing us to constantly be looking down. Looking down at about a 60-degree angle causes the weight of our heads to increase from 12 pounds to about 60 pounds. This puts a great amount of stress on neck muscles over time and could lead to neck pain because of poor posture. This can be fixed by moving your head, so your ears are in line with your shoulders and using the massage gun, massaging your trapezius and soft tissue around the spinal area around the neck. This will loosen your muscles and allow for more blood to flow in that area, fixing your posture.


 Unfortunately, a wide variety of different professions cause us to be sitting for a long period of time. Sitting for an extended amount of time causes weight-bearing strain on the spine and causes the disks to move out of place, leading to lower back pain. A way that you can ease this pain is by sitting up straight and massaging the lower back. Specifically, the soft tissue around your spinal cord near the hip area. While massaging it would help to take deep breaths to help you relax. This lengthens the spine and allows the massage gun to get deeper into the tissue to loosen the muscles even more.


Lastly, to maintain a straight back is tough and if you aren’t used to it your body may not be able to maintain a straight back position for a prolonged period of time. This can be due to being slouched in a position where your middle back is curved, and your shoulders are slouched over. Using the massage gun, getting someone to help you massage your middle back area and your shoulder area. Massaging your shoulders can significantly improve the shoulder range of motion and will make it much easier for you to roll your shoulders back and keep it in line with your chest. Massaging your middle back area by the spine will loosen your muscles and make it much easier to curve it in the other direction when trying to maintain a straight back position.


Overall, numerous studies have shown there is great improvements in posture when people are massaging their bodies regularly. By massaging your neck and trapezius area, massaging your lower back, middle back, and shoulders, your posture will be greatly improved. Some tips to help you maintain a good posture would be to try not to look down as much, practice rolling your shoulders, sitting tall and taking deep breaths, as well as massaging regularly.
