How does massage help you lose weight? Did you know that the number one cause of belly fat is STRESS? Stress turns into a fight or flight response in the body. It’s a physiological reaction that may happen so often in your life that you can’t turn it off. Cortisol is released into the bloodstream and forces your body to hang on to fat to prepare itself for disaster. Idaho Falls Massage, on the other hand, reduces stress, which in turn makes it easier for fat to fall right off.
