Is Massage Therapy a Weight Loss Tactic?

Massage therapy does not specifically aid in weight loss, but it can help reduce cellulite by breaking the subcutaneous tissue. It can also help in making the skin firm and supple, especially for someone who has loose skin from losing weight. Massage offers great benefits for people experiencing the after effects of losing weight.

 

In a recently published article entitled, “Can Massage Therapy Really Help You Lose Weight?”, author and expert, Alexandria Gomez, writes:

 

“A more tangible way massage can help you lose weight is it can make exercise much easier. If you’re physically uncomfortable moving, weight loss isn’t going to come easily. ‘Nothing can be more de-motivating than being bedridden for six to eight weeks while you heal an Achilles tear or a torn labrum,’ says Wil Lewis, massage program director at New York City’s Chillhouse. ‘Massage therapy keeps muscles tuned up, eliminates the tension before it turns into an injury, and reduces delayed onset muscle soreness. When it feels good to be in your body, it makes it easier and more fun to sculpt your body.’”

 

Massage can help in losing weight in an indirect manner. Regular massage has been found helpful in eliminating cellulite by breaking subcutaneous fat. If you cannot continue with your regular workout routine because of muscle pain and other injuries, a massage can help relieve the pain so you can get back to your regular exercise program, helping you to burn calories.
