Health Benefits

Health 01

Massage therapy is an ancient form of healing used for thousands of years and is one of the most natural and instinctive means of relieving pain and discomfort. Warmth, caring, reassurance, strength and healing are all transmitted by touch through the hands. It is a form of nurturing that awakens, encourages and supports the body’s own healing powers. Muscular tension is often the physical form of emotional stress, anxiety and depression.

The magic of massage lies in the ability to touch the whole human being.
Body, mind and soul

Health 02

There is increasing medical evidence to show the great value of massage. It is one of the easiest ways of maintaining good health and there is a strong link between stress and illness. People are less resistant to disease after an emotional or stressful event and massage is the ideal way of reducing stress, whether physical or emotional.

Physically, massage can relax tight muscles, improve circulation, nervous function and joint mobility, aid digestion and speed up the elimination of waste products, which in turn all increase the body’s fluidity and can ease many short and long term ailments such as back pain, arthritis and insomnia.

Health 03

These direct benefits, coupled with the psychological benefits, produce a marvellous feeling of well being that cannot be matched by modern drugs.
