Massage & The Beauty Parlor: Not so Different After All! December 29, 2014

Massage & The Beauty Parlor: Not so Different After All!, Boston, Massachusetts

Everyone knows about benefits of massage for relaxation, aiding the circulatory system and encouraging lymphatic system health. And, the fact is, when you want to keep the doctor away, regular massage is going to help you. But, the professionals at Green Street Massage have also been providing the Boston area with another benefit of massage and that is for its cosmetic benefit. Green Street Massage is a holistic massage, reiki and acupuncture practice that affords clients a list of the most masterful massages, including hot stone massage, deep tissue massage and sports massage. Their practice also highlights the once neglected area of massage that appears to be making a comeback: massage and beautification. In fact, the answer to the question, “Why get a massage?” just became a lot more interesting!

Mood elevation is an amazing side effect of regular massage that really is the perfect accompaniment to any beauty routine. However, when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of your massage, if muscle definition is what you’re after, then you’re in luck. Upon sending a group of young men into exhaustion with exercise, researchers divided them into massaged and non-massaged groups. Results showed that those massaged had reduced inflammation and increased mitochondria—the cell’s energy factories. Translation: massage gets you back to exercise in a shorter amount of time with the ability to train harder, faster and longer with a reduced risk of injury. Additionally, massage supports muscle tone because tight muscles don’t absorb blood well. Massages stretch your fibers and enable fluids to flow through more easily—a necessary component of muscle definition.

Finally, regular massage really does decrease cellulite. While you’re not going to buy your mom’s 70's roller massage machine, targeted massage can really aid with hard-to-combat areas such as the inner and upper thighs or above the knees. Why? Improved circulation and increased blood flow through your veins and capillaries is induced particularly well with knuckle and kneading massage techniques that break up fat deposits by exerting heavy pressure. So, heading down to your favorite massage guru really will turn your jiggle into the right wiggle!
