Massage therapy introduced by Dr. Serani

Dr. Deborah Serani wrote at her blog a good overview of massage therapy. This part of her post especially caught my attention:

Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. Massage Therapy does not only ease the stress and tension of everyday life. It has been shown to be beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, and more.

Do you see the similarities in the benefits of message therapy and the benefits ascribed to an infrared sauna? They both help to relax our body, to allow blood to circulate more freely. Also, lymph system is stimulated, which can help tissues of our body to get rid of wastes accumulated in areas with low blood circulation. So, from logical point of view, the massage can be a good supplement for a sauna session. Try to combine one with another. You can do it in a variety of ways. Ask your partner before you go in a sauna if he can give you a massage, or learn some simple self-massaging techniques and give yourself a massage while taking a sauna. Or find a spa or a fitness club which has both an infrared sauna and a massage cabinet, so you can go into sauna right after massage. With massage and infrared sauna applied simultaneously, their effect can not only add, it can even multiply.
