We 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.
