Massage therapy dates back to 3000 BCE in India, where it was considered a sacred system of natural healing.
Today, lots of us enjoy a massage weekly at our local salon or spa to help relax and unwind from the stress of our day to day lives.
There are many physical and mental benefits from having a massage which can have a overall positive effect on your health and well-being.
Not only is massage extremely relaxing, it helps to soothe any sore aches and pains in your muscles, improves your circulation, helps to stimulate the lymphatic system to aid disposal of toxins, increases your joint mobility and flexibility and improve skin tone.
Visiting your Massage Therapist regularly can really help get to the bottom of any niggly tension areas and give you some time to have some peace and quiet!
There are several different types of massage which include, Swedish, hot stone, bamboo, deep tissue, aroma therapy, pregnancy and sports massage. Each of these massages are suited for different people and what they want to get out of their massage. If you’re not sure which one to go for, your Therapist will be more than happy to guide you!
