Upper back pain usually occurs as the result of poor posture, muscle overuse, or injury. Many people experience pain and stiffness in their upper back as a result of sitting in a hunched position. Upper back pain may display as dull aching pain and stiffness or sharp and burning pain.

While many of us stuck indoors we tend to be spending a lot more time sitting - whether we are working from home or binging on the latest Netflix documentary. The most common cause of lower back pain is postural stress. While seated the pressure on your low back can be up to 80% greater compared to when you are standing. Prolonged sitting causes shortening in your hip flexors, which can, in turn, prevent your glutes from firing properly causing them to be weak and unable to support your lower back.

Dry brushing the skin is a simple way to exfoliate, detoxify the skin and stimulate the lymphatic system. And the best part is it really is as easy as it sounds—a firm, natural bristle brush swept across the skin, from toe to head.

The method is called ‘dry’ brushing because it is performed on dry skin (although some people choose to apply a light coat of body oil before brushing). It is most effective if done each day while the skin is dry, right before hopping in the shower.
