No matter where you live, life is at least a little bit rough on your body. Everyday things, even the most mundane ones, quickly add up and put stress on your body. Something as simple as sitting down all day can cause lower back and hip problems. Even worse, if your legs remain mostly still all day, you can get blot clots and swollen veins.
Now, if you live in New York City, you have a whole host of other issues to deal with. Even if you have a cushy desk job where you get to sit all day, you still likely walk around quite a bit as part of your commute. Frequent walking causes minor nerve and soft tissue damage to your feet and legs, and if you’re not careful, you can end up with damaged ligaments and tendons that may require surgery to fix. Even riding on the subway can strain your body as you stand for extended periods or tense your hands and shoulders as you grip the stability bars while the train slows and accelerates. And that’s not even counting being jostled by other passengers. It may be time to look into an Asian massage in NYC.
Physical stresses aside, even frequent and common annoyances like traffic, rude neighbors, waiting in line, dealing with cops, flagging down a cab, eating questionable street food, and arguing over which pizza joint is better can cause unconscious stress that also adds up. Without even thinking about it, you’re suddenly carrying a lot more stress in your shoulders, which causes your back to tense up. You might stomp a little bit more when you walk, which is hard on your calves and feet.
One way to help relieve this stress is to do frequent stretching. Yoga and light aerobic exercise like Tai Chi can do a lot to relax tight muscles and relieve stress. However, if you want a faster fix that will make you feel better and looser for days, then look for a sign that says “Asian massage spa NYC”. A therapeutic massage can work out the knots and loosen stiff and sore muscles, which helps you to relax. The comforting pampering of an Asian spa treatment alone will also go a long way towards helping you to relax. The soothing, quiet atmosphere will allow much of your stress to melt away before your masseuse even begins to knead away the tension your body has collected.
