Benefits Of Massage In Weight Loss

Benefits of Massage in Weight Loss

Massage is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend an hour, trying to lose weight is one of the least. Many who include Massage Therapy in their weight loss program find achieving their weight loss goals easier and they are happier mentally, emotionally and physically doing so.

Massage is a wonderful reward for achieving your intermediate weight loss goals but goes far beyond that.

Benefits of Massage in Weight Loss
Research shows that Massage has been shown to improve circulation, nutrition and blood flow to the muscles which helps the muscles to grow and burn more calories as a result.

Massage increase the oxygen to muscle tissue, helping endurance and recovery time. Massage can also improve range of motion and help prevent injuries. How?

Exercise is important for weight loss, but it also taxing on your body. You will not lose weight as fast if you experience a lot of soreness, muscle stiffness and knots in the muscles which prevent you from working as hard next time you exercise. Massage also promotes muscle flexibility which reduces the danger of injuries during exercise which would limit activity and weight loss progress.

A smoothly functioning digestive system is critical to achieving one’s target weight. Massage therapists can promote digestive health and help eliminate waste products through Abdominal Massage.

Including Massage in your program will not only improve your overall fitness, but your whole feeling of happiness and well being, which will make it easier to stick to and attain your goals.

Palm Springs is such an Eclectically awesome place with soo much to offer.The Palm Springs Tram, The Living Desert Zoo, The Palm Springs Art Museum, hiking at 1000 Palms Oasis and of course the incredibly healthy and relaxing Palm Springs Mineral waters....
 But what could you add to your itinerary to make your trip Perfect?
A Marvelous Palm Springs Massage with Essential Oils of course!! Why you ask?
 (Of course if you've had a Marvelous Massage you don't need to ask)

Why use Essential Oils
A friend in the Holistic Health field for many years told me repeatedly of the outstanding success she had using Essential Oils in her practice on health problems from mild to severe (WOW!)and advised me to offer them to my clients. I think to really get an added therapeutic benefit and have a Marvelous Massage when visiting Palm Springs you should consider asking your Massage Therapist if they use them.

Essential oils are extracted through distillation from the flowers, leaves…of herbs, bushes etc. An Essential oil massaged on the foot is said to be distributed to every cell within the body in 21 minutes. WOW! Being the oldest form of medicine known to man, they were more valuable than gold in the past. Wow! Research has also shown that essential oils can be Anti-Viral and Anti-infectious.  

Science is now beginning to acknowledge the healing substances found in Essential Oils and is believed to improve several symptoms. The following are some of my favorites and their benefits.

Lavender is the most versatile of all oils and is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It is used for a range of problems involving the skin, such as Eczema, Athletes foot, Burns Dermatitis, Cellulite, Shingles…and helps to replenish and protect it. It also supports the Immune and Lymphatic systems, is used for Fibromyalgia, Depression, Stress, Asthma Osteoarthritis, Allergies, ADD, Inflammation, low blood pressure, Jet lag, Anemia, PMS Parkinson’s, as an Anti-biotic and for digestive problems such as Diverticulitis.

Peppermint is most highly regarded for supporting the digestive system and is said to help Heartburn  Ulcers and other digestive problems. It is used as an Anti inflammatory, for back pain, Flu, Hot flashes, Jet lag, Hangovers, Sciatica, Tendonitis and mental alertness.

Rosemary is energizing oil that promotes blood circulation, helps restore alertness when experiencing fatigue and improves mental clarity and focus. As is Lavender, it is a popular ingredient in skin care products, used for Cellulite, Eczema, Low blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease, Cramps, Osteoporosis, The Flu, Nausea, Digestive difficulties, and the Lymphatic System. It is also used for Tendonitis, Rheumatism, Alertness and Insomnia.

I hope you all are able to enjoy a soothing therapeutic Massage with essential oils soon!
