As a beauty therapist you may be sitting with a stooped posture most of the day, whilst using a lot of concentration and fine motor skills. This can be physically and mentally exhausting for your body. Your upper neck and shoulder muscles may fatigue quite quickly causing ligamentous strain through the upper and lower back, as well as the front of the neck. With some people this poor posture could lead to a lot of headaches.
