Sometimes our daily lives can be filled with stress and lots of rushing around. Endless reasons to tense up and feel rigidity in our muscles.
Often it is only when we relax that we realise how stressed we are.
Tension builds up in our bodies and stays there, challenging our immune system.
Massage uses the power of touch to relax and reassure tired, stressed, aching muscles. By helping the body to release tension, the mind also benefits.
In addition, massage provides you with a restful calm environment in which to take a little break from the busy world, resulting in reduced stress levels.
On a physiological level, massage is known to stimulate the lymph system. The lymph system processes approx. 4 litres of fluid a day helping to process fats and recycle fluids around the body. Massage may relieve tension in body and the mind thus helping the client experience a sense of calm and well-being.
There are circumstances when massage is NOT recommended. If in doubt, please consult your doctor.
