Hairdresser Exercises

Hairdressers, spending long hours behind the chair bring on sore shoulders, stiff back and carpal tunnel among other maladies. Take a few minutes each day while at work to do these simple exercises to stretch and relax your muscles and you will feel better at the end of the day.

Start now, at whatever age you are, even if you haven't experienced any discomfort yet. You may be able to avoid aches and pains in the future.
Standing all day with your arms up takes a toll on your neck muscles.
The following stretching exercises will help release the knots and relax your neck. Each exercise can be performed for 10-15 repetitions and the whole workout can be repeated two or three times a day. When doing these exercises, sit straight with your back firmly against the back of the chair. Let your arms lay close to your body with your hands on your thighs.
