More About Massage

The benefits of massage go beyond relaxation. Massage is actually one of oldest, simplest forms of therapy used to relieve pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Massage involves a system of stroking, pressing and kneading of the body which affects the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It can be used to either stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending on what the individual needs. Thus, helping to reduce fatigue and replenishing energy.

Although a single massage is enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body thus helping to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension. Some benefits of massage include:

  • Relaxing
  • Soothing
  • Healing
  • Reassuring
  • Eases tension, stiffness, and pain
  • Improves breathing
  • Improves circulation
  • Enhances well-being
