About Massage

The physician must be experienced in many things, but most assuredly in rubbing

Hippocrates

 

Have you ever experienced that post-massage feeling? Your mind is calm and clear and your body is relaxed. Massage brings a deep sense of peace through profound relaxation of mind and body and to experience this on an individual level is to begin to create it in the world around you.

Long working hours, stressful jobs and sitting at a desk or in front of a computer for hours can seriously affect your health and wellbeing. This lifestyle can result in muscle aches and pains, headaches, insomnia, anxiety and stress. Massage helps to reduce tension and ease back, neck and shoulder pain.  It relieves muscle aches and pains; stiff necks, reduces headaches, insomnia, and anxiety and improves concentration.

Massage also has a cumulative effect on the body and the mind. An occasional massage leaves you feeling great, but regular massage can do so much more. The massage done in each session builds on itself, helping your body maintain its relaxed state and leaving you feeling calm, relaxed and energised!

Numerous research studies undertaken over the years that show the many benefits of having a regular massage. Whether your need is to have a few moments of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or get relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical wellbeing.

Massage is the oldest known healing art and predates all orthodox medicine and all other complementary therapies.  In Eastern cultures, massage has always been part of a valued tradition that recognises the interrelatedness of the mind, body and spirit.  Touch is an effective way of not only reducing pain and accelerating healing but also gives comfort.  Its phenomenal ability to relieve the ravages of stress and tension on the body has resulted in massage becoming the most popular of all complementary therapies.
