Detox & Massage Therapy -- help your body detox with massage therapy

This health tip is a follow up to last week's show on Detox.  

Another good way to help your body to detox is get a massage!!  Massage therapy helps to push fluid out the tissue spaces, into the lymph system and out of the body.  It also brings more circulation to the muscles and helps to get lactic acid out of muscles and stops them from being so sore.

Massage has a lot of beneficial qualities and just helps you to relax.  Drink lots of water for the next 24 hours after a massage to help your body clean out some of the toxins that have been pushed out of the tissues and muscles.

Massage is great to do any time but is you are doing a detox make sure to get massage a little more frequently.

A lot of insurance companies will cover massage therapy and all you need is a referral from your doctor.
