Swimming is good for you
Believe it or not any exercise is good for you within reason, but it’s surprising just how little we get these days when we’re working in the city. This necessitates gym memberships and such of course, but you can’t beat some good old fashioned walking, cycling and swimming. These exercises use more muscles than you’d imagine and they’re all good forms of cardio. Trust us, we know what we’re talking about, we are London massage therapy experts you know!
But swimming. When you look at all the muscles you use when you go for a swim, you’ll realise that this is the best, and it’s also zero impact. This means of course that it doesn’t impact on your joints in the same way as walking and running. It’s an excellent way to get your heart rate up and improve the muscle tone on your legs and up body.
London massage therapy after exercise
It’s always good to get yourself a massage after exercising, whether you’ve been to the Royal Docks or you’ve simply been to the gym. A proper London massage therapy session following your exercise can help in the alleviation of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). This is how you feel when you’ve been working out and then it starts to hurt. It’s usually common if you’ve never worked a particular part of the body before.
What you’re essentially doing when this happens is damaging your muscles. This is what naturally happens in order for us to grow them and strengthen them. You must have heard people talk about “muscle burn.” This is the same thing and massage can really help. Depending on how hard you’ve worked your body, you might want to ask your London massage therapy expert about how soon you should contemplate having your massage. In extreme cases it might be good to wait a number of hours. Our massages are especially good, since we incorporate many different methods and techniques, and everything is done by a professional masseuse.
