Why choose massage for your next event?

massage benefits

We’ve all have those days when all we need is a relaxing massage to take the stresses and strains of the day away. Whatever the reason whether its due to injury, joint or muscular pain, or even just the day-to-day rigours of daily life taking their toll, massage is widely recognised as an effective alternative therapy that many of us turn to. However what do we really know of this technique in which we put so much trust?

What is massage?
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the benefit of the client. Techniques and benefits can vary widely and our therapists often use a combination of techniques always tailoring the experience to suit the problem areas and likes and dislikes of the client.
Good massage techniques administered by a trained and qualified practitioner can be extremely beneficial for a multitude of mental and physical ailments.

Benefits to the mind…
massage benefitsMassage has been proven to be a fantastic treatment for stress and anxiety. The application of massage techniques releases endorphins and reduces stress inducing hormones, resulting in a state of mental relaxation and calm. Insomnia sufferers particularly may benefit due to the reduction in stress and increased mental clarity.

Benefits to the body…
A professional and experienced massage therapist will be able to address a number of physical issues with the application of pressure and massage techniques. Elongation and manipulation of the muscles, breaking down adhesions, address alignment and increasing blood flow to the tissues will assist in releasing muscle tension and pain, joint stiffness, and by default, posture.

And there’s more…
Even digestive and immune system issues can be assisted by the use of massage techniques. The increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, along with the lowering of stress inducing hormones, assist the body’s natural digestive and immune systems to function more efficiently.
