Stay Healthy this Holiday Season

The holiday season is a beautiful time of year with all of the joys and togetherness that it brings. Unfortunately, along with the excitement often comes added stress. From the errands, shopping, cooking, and the general chaos there seems to be a lack of time to get it all done. When things get hectic, often the first thing we neglect is ourselves and our health. We get fatigued, run down, sick...but not this year!

This year you can do something to change this routine- put your health on your to-do list and schedule yourself a massage! The health benefits of massage are extensive and it can give your immune system a much needed boost! Massage has been shown to aid in the detoxification of the body by increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, bringing nourishment to fatigued and tight muscles. This produces muscle relaxation and increased muscle and joint flexibility as well as arthritis relief. In addition to these physical advantages, massage also produces positive effects for the m…

The Pilates-Massage Connection

At Jupiter Massage & Pilates many clients choose to combine their massage therapy sessions with Pilates training and are experiencing the vast benefits that come from 
integrating the two disciplines to achieve a stronger, more relaxed and balanced body.

Pilates is a complete mind-body method of physical conditioning that was developed by Joseph Pilates. It aims to build strength and flexibility, reduce stress, improve posture and relieve chronic pain through a focus on working the core muscles of the body including the abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and gluteals. Strengthening these muscles produces a more solid foundation from which all movements of the body can be made thus lowering the risk of injury from all types of physical activity from sports to everyday actions like bending over.

Pilates and massage offer many similar benefits. Both promote better circulation which helps supply muscles, bones and internal organs with the oxygen and nutrients they need to function prope…

Swedish Massage vs Deep Tissue: Which is right for you?

Swedish Massage vs Deep Tissue: Which is right for you?
To decide which type of massage is right for you it is helpful to understand the differences between Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage, two of the most popular massage styles in the U.S. today.
Swedish massage addresses the body as a whole with the primary effects being to increase circulation and promote overall relaxation as well as general pain relief. As Swedish massage increases the circulation of blood and lymph, it has the result of cleaning and nourishing soft tissues--the skin and muscles. During a Swedish massage the muscles are kneaded and stretched as well as smoothed, lengthened, and drained of excess fluid with long, firm strokes. Vibration or percussion may also be used to stimulate or release muscles thus producing an overall calming and rejuvenating effect. The health benefits of Swedish massage are plentiful including increased circulation, lowered blood pressure, improved immune function and stress relief. P…

Hot Stones for Health!

Hot stone therapy has been relieving pain and bringing health benefits for millennia. The Chinese have been using heated stones to relieve muscular tension and improve the function of the internal organs for approximately 4,000 years. More recently, hot stone therapy has seen a rise in popularity and is used worldwide in spas and health and fitness clubs as an addition to traditional Swedish massage.

Hot stone therapy involves using smooth, flat stones heated to a desired temperature and then placed on key points of the body including the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes. At Jupiter Massage & Pilates our massage therapists also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body, gently rubbing the stone into muscles and tissues on both sides of the body. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, releasing tight muscle restrictions more efficiently. The heat and firmness of the stones penetrate deep into the tissue to achieve a soothing and therapeu…

Regain the 'Spring' in your step!

Spring is about to be sprung so now is the perfect time to break out of your tired winter regime and reignite your motivation by revamping your routine with Pilates! Whether you're returning to the practice or if it's your first encounter, Pilates can help you kick off your springtime with a healthy start. 
If you haven't been as active as you'd like to be this winter then the best way to prevent injury is to get back into it slowly, and to stretch before and after your workouts. Better yet, with Pilates you get the benefits of stretching while you're working out. While one muscle group is in flexion, doing the work of the exercise, the opposing muscle group is extending and stretching. This is why Pilates is such a great way to gain flexibility and strength at the same time. 
And after all that fitness, don't forget to take care of your hard-worked body! A massage is the perfect way to pamper yourself, while clearing away toxins and speeding up muscle recovery.…

Couples massage can be a very positive experience, and has unique benefits, particularly for those in a romantic relationship.

Boost Your Immunity with Massage!

Keeping your immune system functioning at peak efficiency is especially important during cold and flu season. While there are many ways to enhance your immunity with vitamins,  exercise, and a healthy diet, there is another way you may not have thought of- massage therapy! Jupiter Massage & Pilates is leading the charge in fighting the winter ills with our  therapeutic massages which combine hot stone therapy to warm your chilly bones and aromatherapy to clear you stuffy head, nose, and lungs.

Getting a massage not only helps you to relax, it might also benefit your immune system, suggests a recent study conducted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to the study, people who received a 45-minute massage showed an increase in the number of lymphocytes in their bodies. Lymphocytes are white blood cells that play a large role in defending the body from disease.

The massage also produced other physical changes. Afterwards, participants had lower levels of cytokines, …
