Better Posture by Massage

Allowing the body to reinforce healthy and natural movements can be one of the most beneficial aspects of massage therapy. Many aches and pains are due to poor posture. Whether we are driving, working at a desk, or even just standing still, poor posture can contribute to a number of physical aches and pains. Over time, these habits can cause increased body stress and breakdown.

With a consistent program of massage therapy, the painful points in muscles are loosened and relaxed, joints have greater freedom, and pressure points are relieved. This allows the body to position itself in a healthy and natural posture, therefore avoiding the movements and positions developed over time as a reaction to the pain.

Benefits:

  • Muscles are loosened and relaxed
  • Joints enjoy greater freedom
  • Pressure points are relieved

Massage therapy tied to weight loss?

New research has shown that enjoying a massage every once in a while may help you on your path to diet and weight loss. Too good to be true? Believe it or not, this is true–and we’ll explain how.

First of all, massages release endorphins in your body. Endorphins are the “feel good” chemicals you get from certain foods and activities. Well, these chemicals have an indirect effect on your body’s metabolism– by making you feel good, it can often block the hunger signals from your brain, therefore helping you with your weight loss goals. Less stress lessens the body’s ability to store fat. Massage can also increase circulation and blood flow therefore helping you burn fat faster with a higher metabolic rate.

So there you go– another excuse to schedule that massage you’ve been dying to get!
