Benefits of Massage

Massage is the systematic and scientific manipulation of soft body tissue. It has been used for thousands of years for relaxation and to restore and promote the good health of both mind and body.

Massage releases chronic tension and pain in muscles, improves circulation, increases flexibility in the joints, and reduces mental and physical fatigue

Benefits of Massage include: REDUCES STRESS AND TENSION

When we experience sustained stress in our daily lives, our brain responds in a manner known as "fight or flight". This signals our sympathetic nervous system, which is controlled by the hypothalamus in the brain. Muscles tighten in our neck, shoulders and back, blood vessels constrict, our eyes dilate, large amounts of energy are expended as the adrenal glands excrete hormones. When this process continues for a long time, you feel "stressed out"! Massage breaks this tension by triggering the parasympathetic nervous system (the body's way of conserving and restoring energy).

Touch helps our body and mind to refocus and relax. Squeezing, stretching and kneading releases tight muscles and natural endorphin's. This results in decreased pain, decreased heart rate and a sense of calm.

IMPROVES MENTAL RESPONSE AND ALERTNESS

Massage relieves muscle tension, enabling blood to flow freely and supply the body with necessary nutrients and oxygen. This increases cellular activity and improves mental response and alertness -- your whole system runs more efficiently, and you feel energised! The more massage you receive, the more supple and relaxed your musculature becomes.
