It seems like every day new benefits of massage therapy are being identified. But could it really be that regular massage can help you lose weight? It’s a fact, people who receive regular massage aid weight loss in several ways:
Under constant stress of work and irregular dietary habits, an individual’s body metabolism can often become sluggish and can result in increased body weight due to accumulation of fat. Studies show that massage can not only aid with muscle relaxation and recovery but can also stimulate body metabolism. An active body metabolism means that your body can burn up nutrients much quicker and will lead to reduced fat.
Our body stores the fat in capsule like appendages called fat cells. Research shows that if proper massage is performed in the area with excess fat accumulation, it bursts the fat capsules and makes it ready for absorption inside the body. Combined with proper exercise and diet massage can cut down high levels of excess fat in your body.
Cut That Cellulite Down
The main component of accumulated body fat is cellulite. If your thighs and buttocks are ailed by accumulated cellulite, massage can definitely help. Massaging in the cellulite laden areas can distribute the fat and releasing it into the body for absorption. The metabolism also gets stimulated by a massage which helps cut down cellulite in your body.
