Massage helps the body to rid itself of toxins and impurities which make you stiff, sore and lethargic.
Removal of these toxins (with lymph drainage) will enable your body to function better.
Regular massage helps strengthen the immune system and this in turn will bring your stress levels down.
Massage improves muscle tone and balance and also helps to increase joint mobility by reducing the physical stress placed on bones and joints.
Massage can also improve circulation which is beneficial to all parts of the body’s systems and organs; the increase in circulation of oxygen rich blood to the skin improves nutrition to the cells, encouraging regeneration, elasticity and resistance to infection.
Additionally massage helps to reduce pain by the release of endorphins.
Besides a standard Full Body Massage, I offer a variety of other types of massage techniques:
Deep Tissue Massage – Ideal for people who do a lot of training, the massage helps to clear the lactic acid build up and helps soothe tired muscles.
Swedish Massage – a general body massage, soothing and relaxing. Lymphatic Drainage Massage – a very light massage, concentrating on clearing the lymphatic system, helping the body to purge itself of toxins.
Special Holistic Body Massage – Using aromatherapy oils this massage covers you from head to toe also with acupressure on the face and head along with reiki healing, the complete massage lasts seventy minutes.
During massage therapy, the massage therapist works the tension out of stiff and sore muscles, encouraging their patient to relax. This may help the person receiving the massage on many levels: his muscles feel relaxed and are no longer sore, he is relaxed and no longer tense, and the muscles loosen, allowing a larger range of motion.
A study performed on university dance students demonstrated that the dancers had improved in range of motion, mood, balance, posture, and performed better.
As certain muscles are massaged, emotions may be released. The kneading motions combined with heat and or aromatherapy cause a person to relax, releasing tension. Stress and tension is often rubbed away with any aches or pains in the body.
Studies performed by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami indicated that the immune systems improved in children who were massaged daily by their parents; the children’s white blood cell (neutrophils) counts increased. Therapeutic massage is used as a treatment for many illnesses and during the recovery period after surgery.
Scientists believe that this deep, healing massage triggers the release of certain chemicals in the body that helps you combat illnesses and speeds recovery.
