There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Whatever your reason for wanting a massage whether it’s for pampering, rejuvenating or therapeutic, a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management or self-maintenance, massage therapy can be powerful in your healthcare regime.
Massage is a “hands-on” treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques.
Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.
Massage therapy is one of the most antique medical traditions. Various classical cultures such as Egyptians, Greeks, Indians and Chinese, strongly believed in the therapeutic benefits of the different massage techniques and utilized them to treat a wide range of diseases with some success.
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. It is a holistic approach that can be used alongside conventional medicines.
Here are just some of the benefits:
- Reduces stress, anxiety and increases relaxation.
- Helps relieve muscular tension, soreness & stiffness
- Improves circulation & skin elasticity & oxygen flow
- Helps detox the body and eliminate toxins & swelling
- Aids better sleep & reduces insomnia
