To be perfectly honest my left shoulder has been my problem child with inverting and hurts every so often. 30 week inversion challenged stopped and instead I got a massage, acupuncture, and tried cupping for the first time.
This is what I discovered….my shoulders and neck are tight!!! Both my therapist and acupuncturist were concerned and this is probably because I work at a computer 9 hours plus or minus a day. During those 9ish hours I don’t move that much (I get super focused and lose track of time). Sitting haunched over is no good!
I also carry around a very cute 3 almost 4 year old. Not all of the time but last weekend I did take him to his first ball game! This was great but resulted in me doing a lot of carrying. He is roughly 40 pounds so that did not help my muscle tightness.
Instead of focusing on inversions. I am upping my self-care game. I invested in a Thera Cane for some self massage and will be doing more trips to the acupuncturist. I was scared to try cupping but honestly it felt amazing. The whole session was amazing and so needed. I also will do more standing at my desk and take more stretch breaks!
