Hot Towels: Add-On That Really Adds

May 14, 2013

Using heat during a massage provides many health benefits, ranging from easing symptoms of arthritis to increasing circulation to help reduce post-exercise or post-strain muscle soreness.

Hot moist towels are a convenient, inexpensive mode of heat therapythat can be administered before a massage to increase circulation and help relieve muscle soreness.

 

According to a December 2013 report in the "Journal of Clinical Medicine Research," hot towels can transfer heat more quickly and effectively to muscles than dry heat (like heating pads).

 

Hot towels also increase blood flow more quickly than dry heat, according to a study published in September 2009 in the "Archives of Dermatological Research." Increased blood flow means sore muscles get what they need to heal faster.

 

Next time you book a massage at Anew, request the Hot Towels Add-On ($10) and your muscles will thank you!
