Why We Need Water

The human body is made up of 60% water. The brain and heart alone are compreised of the majority of the water your body contains. The body does not just contain water though, it also contains toxins. Toxins are stored in your muscles and tissues and are released through out your body. Toxins are eliminated from your body by the liver and kidneys, but only with help from the replenishment of water. The body needs water to survive, but it also needs water to heal. So, for anyone wondering why after a massage or workout you are told to drink water it is because you have released all the toxins from your muscles and you need to flush them out of your system. Water does everything from quenching your thirst to healing you from the inside out. Jupiter Massage & Pilates 125 W Indiantown Rd #102 Jupiter, Fl 33458 (561) 529 - 2093

Massage: A Quick History

Dating back to as early as 3000 B.C., Massage is one of the earliest remedial practices of human kind. Massage is the most natural and instinctive means of relieving pain. In nearly all ancient cultures a form of touch or massage was practiced by a healer , spiritual leader, or doctor. The massage methods that we practice today descend from the Swedish, German, French, English, Japanese, and Chinese systems.

Pilates? Yes!!!

In todays time, some forms of exercise have become detrimental to health. A lot of people seem to take exercising to extremes that put excessive strain on their muscles in order to achieve the same results that could be obtained in a less damaging way. Oxford Dictionary defines Pilate s as:  A system of exercises using special apparatus, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, posture, and enhance mental awareness. They are exactly right. Pilates safely provides an all around stronger and more sustainable foundation of strength and flexibility, that engages every muscle in the body. Pilates can range from strength training and flexibility using resistance springs in place of using free weights, as well as range of motion exercises and the use of isometric contractions which is holding a part of the body in an unmoving, constant contraction that builds the true strength of a muscle. At Jupiter Massage & Pilates we offer training of all kinds from beginner to expert
