Massage Therapy keeps you exercising...

In 2008, the US Department of Health and Human Services released the US Physical Activity Guidelines... To save you the boring details, here is the summary: Exercise is good (surprise!). Different levels of exercise are recommended for different age groups (children vs adolescents vs adults), but the bottom line is that regular exercise can lead to a number of benefits:

  • weight control,
  • improved mood,
  • energy boost,
  • combating heart conditions and diabetes,
  • and better sleep

The key word is REGULAR exercise.  But what about when your body is too sore? When you are too tired?  When you have an injury? Or when you just plain don't feel like it?  (This is where I would regularly tell you about the benefits of cryotherapy and exactly why people are loving it, but this post is about Massage Therapy, so I'll refrain)

The American Massage Therapy Association has published a summary of results from clinical studies spanning from 1984-2010 that show strong evidence that massage therapy can 

  • Reduce muscle tension,
  • Improve muscle tone,
  • Promote relaxation, 
  • Increase Range of Motion,
  • Prevent injuries,
  • Reduce swelling, 
  • Maintain maximal performance, 
  • and even reduce breathing pattern disorders

Plus we all know a massage can be a wonderfully relaxing experience.  Which leads me to our news... Celsius Cryo Spa is now hosting two different massage therapists for your recovery need!  We are excited and proud to be the new home of Jess Grimmer, LMT and Janet Jackson, LMT.  Soon you will be able to see their brief biography and book your next appointment with either of them on our website

Plus, stay tuned to our Facebook page as we are planning to announce our celebration to mark the addition of our two newest team members.
