Benefits of massage
With many physical, mental and emotional benefits, massage is a wonderful therapy that can help enhance our health and wellbeing either on its own or as a therapy to complement conventional medical care.
As well as helping to soothe tired, tense and aching muscles, massage also helps improves blood and lymphatic circulation, boosts the immune system and eases pain. Massage is a holistic therapy which means that it not only benefits the physical body but the whole being - body, mind and soul.
Massage provides the essential "me" time that we all need. It is supportive and therapeutic, helping to reduce anxiety, stress and worries. It lifts spirits on an emotional level and helps to restore feelings of being able to cope by supporting our emotional and psychological need for comfort, touch and relaxation.
