Most of us go into the ‘I’m going to get healthy for Summer’ or ‘I plan to drop some Kilo’s before Summer’ frame of mind in the months leading up to December.
We start by heading out for walks each day and then back it up by cutting out the sweet foods ….mmmm chocolate….but did you know that along with exercise and food, there is another tool that you can use to help you get that summer body? Massage!!
Massage is not only relaxing…
Massage is often thought of as a way to relax and wind down but we are here to tell you it is much much more!!
Massage can help you with pain relief. If a sore back is stopping you exercising, massage has been found to alleviate some pain, making it easier for you to hit the pavement.
Massage provides pain relief
Massage can also help with muscle soreness, should you overdo it with the exercise. Don’t let one good workout put you off another, just because your muscles are sore the next day. That just means you are working them!
Massage can improve range of movement
If you haven’t been active in a while, massage can help improve the range of motion that your body may have. Regular massage can also help loosen muscles in preparation for exercise. Making it easier for you to push yourself a little more than usual. Which means the results will shine through.
Massage helps you sleep
In addition, massage can help with sleep patterns. If you are planning on upping the amount of exercise you do, nothing can help your body recover more than a good night sleep.
Above all, you can treat massage as a treat for reaching goals, sticking to your plan and rewarding yourself for a job well done!!
