Benefits of Massage Therapy

IMG_4668We live in a society where more and more is expected of our time and often, these relentless demands result in a build up of stress and tension in our minds and bodies, depleting our energy and affecting our health.

Massage offers a wealth of physiological and psychological benefits and below I have outlined those that are important to me and my practice.

  • Reduces stress and tension
  • Eases muscle stiffness and aching joints
  • Removes toxins and metabolic waste
  • Encourages the body’s natural healing processes
  • Rejuvenates and invigorates the body and mind
  • Improves mobility and flexibility
  • Relieves pain
  • Promotes relaxation and self-esteem
  • Calms the nervous system and balances emotions
  • Improves circulation
  • Improves sleep

Massage is one of the oldest forms of therapy and I believe in its ability to heal. Massage therapy should form part of an healthy, active lifestyle. The way we work, rest, exercise, eat, drink and sleep all have a fundamental effect on our general wellbeing and state of health. Aftercare advice and exercises, along with your massage treatment, can help to maintain a more harmonious balance of health and wellbeing and maximise the benefits of your treatment.
