Support Fitness and Weight Loss with Massage
Wouldn't it be great if you could simply get a massage and be in peak physical condition? Actually, that's not too far from the truth! When supplemented with a healthy diet, exercise, and good habits, regular massage can help keep your body in tip-top shape.
When your body is pain-free, low-anxiety, and functioning as it should, you are much more likely to both exercise and enjoy the experience of exercising! Regular massage supports your physical conditioning by putting you in the right mental and physical space to get the most out of your diet and exercise regimen.
If you don't enjoy working out because movement is uncomfortable, exercise becomes a truly arduous task. But when it feels good to be in your body, it is easy and fun to add physical activity to your daily routine. Massage alleviates pain and makes body movement easier, which in turn makes exercise a lot more enjoyable. Certain kinds of massage can even reduce swelling for improved mobility, reengage deactivated muscles to prevent injury and improve athletic performance, or correct your posture.
The phrase “No Pain, No Gain” is emblematic of the way we approach weight loss—we assume it will involve suffering. But when you add massage to your fitness plan, you are also adding self-care. It is much easier to stick with your exercise and weight loss goals if you are feeling positive, and massage is excellent for creating that mindset. Plus, massage is a great non-food reward for when you hit your fitness milestones!
Whether you are just getting started at the gym or working out is already a part of your routine, massage is a great addition to your physical conditioning. Regular massage therapy increases muscle tone and flexibility, improves range of motion, and reduces recovery time from injury. Since massage increases circulation, it facilitates the removal of metabolic wastes generated during exercise. Regular massage enhances performance in the gym and maximizes your workout results, as well as reducing your risk of injury.
So no matter your skill level or fitness goals, regular massage can help you get the most out of your body!
