In our modern society, where stress-related disorders have a major contribution to health problem, massage can play a significant role in decreasing stress and encouraging wellbeing. Massage may possibly be the oldest recorded health therapy. It is possibly the foundation of most modern medical therapies.
Massage contacts the largest organ in the body - the skin. Pressure and stretching stimulates most other organs, vessels, glands and tissues.
This leads to beneficial effects on heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, respiration and the immune system. The stimulation also releases endorphins, our body’s natural pain killers.
Massage also has a range of psychological benefits, making it a holistic therapy.
Massage can help with acute or chronic injuries, back pain, shin splints, scoliosis, headaches, migraine, neck-shoulder-arm pain, scar tissue, arthritis and many more conditions.
