Massage has been used for centuries as an instinctive way to relieve muscle tension and to relax the body and mind. The way that we feel can have a direct physical effect on our body, so by inducing relaxation and stress relief both the body and mind can benefit from a massage treatment.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Promotes relaxation, reduces stress & anxiety
  • Boosts immune system helps eliminate toxins & swelling
  • Relieves tired, stiff joints and improves muscle tone
  • Aids better sleep, can increase energy levels and reduce insomnia
  • Eases muscular tension, soreness & stiffness
  • Improved skin tone, circulation, elasticity and oxygen flow
  • Helps rid the muscle cells of toxins and improves lymphatic drainage
  • Helps with TLC and induce a psychological ‘feel good factor’

Feeling stressed causes the release of stress hormones which increase the perception of pain and result in muscles to be tightened up and unable to relax again. Massage helps decrease stress hormones in the body therefore reducing the chance of muscle tightness forming and undoing any tension that has already occurred. Stress hormones are replaced with more positive hormones that stimulate emotions of relaxation and calmness.

Sports/deep tissue massage

This type of massage is designed to treat soft tissue injuries or imbalances.  Examples of these can be strains (pulled muscle or tendon), sprains (pulled ligament), tight muscles or “knots” (fibrous build-ups), repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow (pain on the outside of your elbow) or golfers elbow (pain on the inside of your elbow).  Sports and soft tissue massage target the affected soft tissue structures through the use of deep tissue manipulation and sometimes stretching techniques.

This massage is perfect for gym goers or everyday people who have aches and pains.  Sports massage can improve flexibility, relieve tension, improve endurance and treat and help prevent injuries to keep your body functioning at its peak.

Massage has both physical and emotional responses. Massage relaxes the body by increasing blood circulation and releasing endorphins which are released from the brain and create a feeling of happiness and well-being.

Please remember to drink plenty of water after each treatment to allow the toxins released during the massage to detox fully from your system.
