Massage is a “hands-on” therapy which has been used as a remedy for centuries by almost every culture around the world. There are many forms of massage ranging from purely relaxing to therapeutic.
The therapist, through kneading of the muscles and soft tissues of the body, assists to improve the health and wellbeing of the patient.
Although massage affects the body as a whole, it has particular beneficial effects on the function of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
It has been shown that massage eliminates stress by reducing muscle strain, boosts mental alertness and produces a feeling of calm and wellbeing.
