A Body Massage in Everett May Help You Lose Weight
August 14, 2015
As unusual as it may seem at first glance, a regularly scheduled body massage in Everett, while feeling fabulous in and of itself, may provide the additional advantage of aiding in weight loss efforts without extra effort on your part. There are several distinct and interesting factors regarding massages that can contribute to losing weight.
- A relaxing massage effectively reduces the body’s elevated stress levels and the amount of the stress hormone Cortisol. The more Cortisol that is present in the body leads to the addition of adipose tissue or fat.
- Less stress discourages excessive eating. Many people in today’s frenetic society eat when they are under pressure and are more likely to develop larger fat stores.
- Blood flow and circulation are increased during massage and help to not only deliver essential nutrients throughout the body but also encourage the removal of unwanted toxins via the urinary tract and kidneys. Toxins have been shown to add to the accumulation of fat stores in the body and cause weight gain.
- Massage contributes to the removal of lactic acid build-up in muscles to strengthen them more quickly so that they can function optimally to burn more calories during exercise or other strenuous activity.
