Why do I get antsy?

Antsy from 🪑 sitting?

Well let's dive into that. Not the seat but the idea. 💡

Look when we sit for long periods of time our body starts to make note. If we think about the body as a machine we recognize that the muscles help move the joints and bones. The muscles in motion need blood being pumped by the arteries and heart ❤️. The heart needs fresh blood resupplied by our veins. That in turn needs to be oxygenated with help from our lungs 🫁, meanwhile blood is going to our nerves generating power ⚡️for those muscles.

Those muscles not only move joints but pump veins and its nosy 🧐 neighbours called lymph (removes waste). Much of that blood is made from the marrow in our bones 🦴 and it goes on.

At the end 🤔 you begin to realize how much physical movement actually goes on to keep the engine running 🚗. That means we need to move!

So when we are seated for long periods, the body starts to poke and prod "Hey 👋 do your part already and move around!" When we don't it begins to generate sensations forcing us to readjust, shift or motivate us to get up so that the system from muscle to bone and everything in between can act as the pumps and valves required. You begin move and you groove and generally feel less antsy.

Old advice ✅ is sound when saying upon each hour try to get up for an average of 10 minutes. Keep the locomotion going! No marathons required.

Common founded concerns of sedentary behaviour contribute towards...

Weight gain, atrophy, tension, anxiety, depression, heart disease let's not go on.

You don't have to become an athlete but should stand on your own two feet from time to time. Having trouble? That's where non-invasive therapy comes in, we can safely move your auto parts without eliciting pain! Other benefits included!
