Stay Fit This Summer With Massage Therapy


The warmer months are a great time to be outdoors and active. Here are three ways massage therapy can help you stay fit—both mentally and physically—this summer.

1. Stay in the game. Whether you're marathon training or participating in a softball league, massage can reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries.

2. Unwind. Summer is often busy, so take care of your mental health and wellness. Studies show that massage therapy can relieve stress significantly on physical and psychological levels.

3. Manage aches and pains. Is yard work bringing you down? Research indicates massage therapy can reduce low-back pain, ease the symptoms of arthritis and help neck pain.
