What is Massage?

Massage is a 3,000 yr old therapy and is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect.  Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and psychological changes for general wellbeing.

Massage is a simple, non intrusive hands on therapy that restores, rehabilitates and revitalises your body and mind.  Massage therapy systematically works the muscles and other soft tissues of the body to optimise the function of various body systems.  Massage therapy promotes the body’s natural healing process to work most effectively.

What does it involve?

The system of massage treatment involves the therapist using their hands to apply pressure on your body.  Therapist use various techniques to work on the body: stroking and gliding (effleurage), kneading the soft tissue (petrossage), or what is termed 'percussion' (tapotement).

What are the 'real' benefits?

Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering from what is now commonly encoutrered work related stress.  Massage will not only aid with mental relaxation but will work on physical symptoms of pain that comes from repetitive use, injury or poor use of the body.

The importance of taking regular massage has heightened in recent times as more people recognise how beneficial it is as a way to counteract the effects of modern life.  Corporations are beginning to realise these benefits for staff wellbeing and as a way to increase productivity by rreducing the effects of stress.
