Holistic Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healthcare in practice today. It involves use of different manipulative techniques to move the body’s muscles and soft tissue.
Massage therapy aims to improve blood circulation, increasing the flow of nutrients and eliminating waste products to name but a few.
Massage is the recent name for the ancient-established art of healing by touch. Massage is calming and soothing. It improves our sense of well-being, and reduces the levels of cortisol – the body’s stress hormone.
It also strengthens the immune system by bringing more white blood cells into the circulation system, and this in turn helps to fight infection. It also improves joint mobility, releases muscle tension, helps eliminate toxins and assists in tension release.
Massage can reduce your heart rate, relax your muscles, improve range of motion in your joints and increase production of your body’s natural pain killers. It helps relieve stress and anxiety.
