Benefits

MASSAGE BENEFITS  are both mind & body

It is rare that we take an hour to lie down, close our eyes and just ‘be’.  An hour’s peace and quiet away from everyday demands and stresses has a definite restorative effect.

Stiffness and soreness in muscles can be due to a wide range of physical factors from an overly energetic session in the gym or carrying too much shopping home, to poor posture through being seated at a desk all day or excessive time behind the steering wheel..

For the body, massage helps taut muscles learn to relax and this, combined with strokes to aid lymphatic drainage, helps to release toxins.

THE CAUSES are not always physical however

Emotional tension and the day to day stresses that life throws at us can manifest in headaches caused by a stiff neck and shoulders and the body generally tensing up in response to stress, especially if there is not the opportunity to release.

Massage can also help people to deal with emotional problems such as grief and depression.

Massage will stimulate blood flow and help the release of those feel good endorphins that make us feel smiley inside.
