Inflammation is Your Enemy, Massage is Your Friend

Beneficial inflammation is when your immune system is called into service to protect you from viruses, bacteria and other invaders of your body. However, chronic inflammation activates the body’s immune system in a non-beneficial way that results in damaging healthy cells, thereby weakening an otherwise healthy body. Lifestyle factors such as a diet high in sugar and other highly refined ingredients, obesity, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to unwanted inflammation in your body. Increasing micronutrients such as magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin E, zinc & selenium as well as a diet high in fiber can all help with reducing chronic inflammation.

Receiving a massage can help your body to eliminate unwanted toxins produced by inflammation.
