Does your body (and soul) hurt from being glued to your screen for hours at a time?
Migraines, Carpal Tunnel, or low back pain getting you down?
Do you wish you had some tools and knowhow to counter the effects of desk sitting and enjoy your desk job even more?
Simple Desk Care is here to help.
More and more jobs these days are moving online and on screen. In fact, if you combine commuting, sitting at meals, and vegging out with entertainment at the end of the day, desk workers sit an average of 10-13 hours a day!
Because of this, and an overall sedentary lifestyle, there have been new medical conditions popping up like "text neck" and "sitting disease." Doctors have even been saying that sitting is the new smoking because of the long term dangerous effects sitting can have on a person.
All of this sitting is showing to significantly increase heart disease, mental illness, and diabetes, to name a few. Not to mention it negatively influencing your energy levels, digestion, function of the reproductive organs, and body pain.
I don't mean to scare you with this information, but we do get stuck on auto pilot and have a hard time realizing the impact of our day to day routines. But as a bodyworker of 10 years, I've been able to see the how much our bodies are suffering. Out of all of the types of clients I see, desk workers have shown to have the worst tightness and pain - from seemingly doing nothing!
I've created this course to help you feel empowered at work. To give you a light other than the glow coming from your computer screen. You don’t have to be a slave to your desk. And this course is here to teach you practical and powerful ways to not only feel better, but to prevent pain from creeping in.
While you might not be able to escape your screens, all is not lost. Your desk job does not have to cause you pain. You are not doomed to an unhealthy fate. There are ways to take good care of yourself and counter these negative effects, and many of them you can do while you are working!

why you can trust me
I’ve been in the healing industry for over decade as a bodyworker and yoga teacher. Most of the clients I have worked with over the years have come in with chronic pain due to the wear and tear of sitting at a desk, hunched over a screen for most of their day.
Neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, digestion issues, all happen as a result of sitting. When you sit and work at a desk all day, this also includes sitting while you eat, while you commute, while you unwind at the end of the day, you underuse important muscles that are meant to be you main movers, and over muscles that are meant to just be helpers.
This combination of overuse and underuse of particular muscle groups result in these common pain patterns that I see again and again. And while I’ve been able to help relieve this pain, most of the healing and the true healing comes from what you do on a daily basis with the lifestyle that you’ve created.
You can read more about me and why I'm qualified to help you HERE, but I've taken all of my years of study and experience and combined into a simple course of action you can take today to feel happier now, and be healthier throughout your career and life.
Sure, you could spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on pain treatments, just to have the discomfort and dissatisfaction return. You could waste precious time on the internet trying to find this method or that program that might address your core issues. You could try continue to power through pain and poor working conditions with the hopes that it could get better overtime.
You could get to the root of your pain. You could spend a few hours educating yourself on how your lifestyle could be causing your issues and you can receive very specific instruction on how to tend to that pain. You could form an empowered relationship with yourself so you can learn your body's warning signs and even prevent pain from creeping in.
Choose wisely. Your health and happiness depends on it.
