Massage… It’s For Everybody
Massage is a simple, non-intrusive therapy that restores, rehabilitates and revitalises your mind and body. Anyone of any age and in any condition can use and benefit from massage.
There are many kinds of massage therapy, but they all involve working the muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve the functioning of the various bodily systems. Massage therapy eases the pain and discomfort of injuries, strains and general muscle soreness to allow the body’s natural healing processes to work effectively. It also enhances your energy levels and sense of well being.
Massage can be a regular part of your health and fitness plan. By working regularly with a qualified massage therapist you can overcome or prevent injuries, strains and muscle soreness. Massage keeps your muscles and soft tissues well toned, improves your posture (which in itself reduces the risk of injury) and re-balances your body/mind.
If you suffer from any of the following, massage therapy can benefit you:
- Muscle soreness
- Sports injuries
- Overuse injuries
- Back pain
- Joint sprain
- Feeling run-down
- Chronic pain
How Does Massage Work?
Massage therapy assists in restoring normal functioning of the various systems of the body. A skilled massage therapist can help to:
- Release muscle spasms and tension
- Stimulate local blood supply, increasing nutrient supply to your body tissues.
- Eliminate toxic wastes which may accumulate after a workout.
- Release fibrosis and adhesions (“knots”) in soft tissue.
- Re-organise connective tissue, e.g. rehabilitation of a joint receptor awareness thus improving joint stability.
- Relax body and mind through the soothing touch of therapist’s hands.
How Often Should I Have A Massage?
Massage should be undertaken regularly in order to obtain maximum benefits. Frequency of treatment will depend on a number of things, including the amount of physical activity you do, present or past injuries and the amount of stress you experience. Book for 3/4 of an hour for your back, neck and scalp treatment.
