Driving – many of us do it, but we often forget the impact that our drive to work can
have on our bodies. I spend a lot of time driving due to my mobile business. And
while driving, I often forget to pay attention to my posture (I know, I’m a massage
therapist, I should know better, but hey, I’m human). This poor posture often causes
me to feel discomfort in my shoulders. And that discomfort is increased when you
have to spend time stuck in traffic, which is what I have to do due to the
Metro bus roadwork in Bristol.

you about today.
