THE STANDING DESK

A standing desk is pretty much what it says on the tin: A desk for writing or working while standing up instead of sitting down. Men's Health and The New York Times wrote about recent studies that show sitting all day is really unhealthy, even for people who exercise.

"It doesn't matter if you go running every morning, or you're a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting -- in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home -- you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death.

Clients suffering lower back pain, often commenting that it’s  worse when they go from sitting to standing frequently turns out to be the psoas muscle in spasm. 
Psoas muscle

The psoas (with a silent “P”) runs from the inside of the transverse processes of your lumbar vertebrae (the attachment surfaces of the bones of your lower spine) internally to the lesser trochanter of your femur (an attachment point on the inside of the top of your thigh bone) and acts as a hip flexor (raises your knee towards your chest) and external rotator (turns your thigh out).

Emotional release in bodywork

Emotional releaseIt’s not an uncommon thing for bodywork (of any kind) to bring about emotional release. This can happen when there has beenphysical trauma,especially where there is scar tissue present, but can also happen for themental and emotional traumasthat we pick up through life. I’ve had in in patients have these reactions when coming for lymphatic drainage, but most of all Bowen Therapy.

Going back to Plato, people in the healing professions have realised that you cannot separate the physical, mental and emotional.
