While there are a number of high priority lifestyle factors that complement and support healthy weight maintenance, among them numerous variations of nutrition, exercise, getting enough sleep, and other psychological contributors, receiving therapeutic massage may be an indicator of a generally favorable self-care regimen. Here is an article that suggests that massage may be an independent variable in the weight loss equation. Massage certainly shouldn’t be considered a primary factor in weight control, altough diet and exercise should.
Here is another article that advises: “Lymphatic massage was first used in the 1930s to improve drainage in the human body. Your lymph system helps rid your body of waste and can sometimes become blocked or sluggish.” Since the Body Light Lipo systems – used at all Slender Body Solutions locations – target fat cells, allowing them to release excess cellulite and shrink, it would seem that any modalities that assist in normal waste elimination (perspiration, urination, defecation and exhalation) may have a helpful, complementary effect. Just make sure that normal healthy regimens such as regular aerobic exercise, stretching, hydration, optimal nutrition – and a dedicated, enthusiastic attitude are in place first. Then techniques such as massage can be one reflection of that complete system of interlocking support.
