This Friday marks the kick off to the holiday season. Not much after you’ve finished digesting the candy of Halloween, it will be Thanksgiving time, and once the guilt of all the food you ate has worked its way to the back of your brain, it will be Christmas time. By the time you’re over all the terrible things you’ve put into your body it’ll be Valentine’s Day’s turn to abuse your body with more sweet treats! It seems like a never ending cycle doesn’t it? All that sugar is not only bad for your body on the inside; it can also prematurely age your skin, giving you wrinkles well before your time.
The general solution is to detoxify your body, but the thought of drinking green slime will make anyone choose the other option: doing nothing. Detoxifying your body isn’t about drinking slimy smoothies, or eating grapefruit for a week. You can detoxify with a massage instead! Kick-start your body’s own natural cleansing process to help set things right again.
How does massage detox my body, you ask? The rhythmic strokes and focused pressure applied to muscles, tissues, and organs stimulates the circulatory system working much like a sponge. When pressure is applied to the tissue and fat, the toxins are ‘squeezed’ out and released into the circulatory system to then be eliminated. Ever feel queasy for a little after a massage? That’s your body hard at work!
Massage not only feels good, it’s also good for your lymphatic system where these toxins (candy, processed food ingredients, and other poisons) build up and make you feel sluggish and achy. It can also cause deterioration in organs and glands-vital players in your immune system!
Kick start detoxifying the damage by treating yourself to a massage (one you’ll need to keep on repeat to get through the other toxic side effect of the holidays-extended family). When you book a massage with us, and add a skin care treatment from 4Ever Young Beauty Spa, you’ll receive 20% off both services! Take advantage of this special by Friday before it expires!
Remember, one massage isn’t the cure-all. You have to continue taking good care of your body with proper nutrition, staying away from processed foods, eating enough fiber, drinking enough water, and exercising as regularly as possible. This doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym. Just walking around the block once a day or parking in the furthest spot in the lot at work will help your body stay clean, and keep you healthy!
