MASSAGE

WHAT IS MASSAGE?

Massage is one of the oldest therapies available and has many positive effects on the mind and body. It can reduce stress, anxiety, nervousness and its related health problems. Massage can also increase flexibility, posture and muscle tone.

Massage is one of the oldest and simplest treatments available and has been documented from about 3000BC.

Massage alone cannot guarantee the preservation of health but together with a good healthy diet, regular exercise and a balance between work, rest and recreation, it can play a major part in the promotion of health. It helps to bring our bodies back to a state of ease.

 

In day-to-day life, people must cope with high levels of stress and every stress – whether emotional, physical or mental – changes the state of the body. That’s when tension occurs. If this tension is not alleviated, it manifests itself in the body and becomes more and more painful due to contracting muscles. Eventually, it can affect other systems of the body.

Because body and mind are closely connected, tension in the body can often lead to inflexible thoughts and attitudes. Likewise, loose, relaxed, alert muscles will often induce a relaxed, enjoyable lifestyle.

Massage can help to restore your muscles’ balance, function and harmony. It can also works on your body’s other systems, such as the central nervous system, circulatory and lymphatic systems, and the connective tissue.
