self-care you can indulge in

Massage therapy is a form of natural therapy and self-care where a trained therapist manipulates the soft tissues of the body for optimum health and well-being. Its therapeutic properties are known to relieve stress, heal injuries and even treat various types of ailments. Today, massage is practiced globally to provide relaxation, healing and therapeutic experience to people in different parts of the world. Each session I use a variety of techniques and apply pressure to muscles, tissues, and ligaments to relieve tension.

MORE BENEFICIAL THAN YOU MAY THINK

Massage is an experience that is both physical and emotional. It combines a knowledge of anatomy and natural healing with an enveloping experience meant to provide comfort and care in an increasingly stressful world. Research has examined the benefits of massage extensively, and continues to discover new ways that this ancient technique benefits those in the modern world.

You cannot deny the immediate relaxation that you feel after getting a massage. When your body is tense, it produces unhealthy levels of stress hormones. Getting a massage allows your body to let go of this tension and recover, and improves your mood. Taking some time to treat yourself to an enjoyable activity with both physical and mental benefits is a great way to replenish your happiness levels and restore your body.

“The sense of touch is the massage therapist’s main avenue used to affect another being and is the body’s main method of gathering information about itself. In contrast, an artist uses the sense of vision, and a musician uses the sense of hearing to communicate with others. Touching can affect us physiologically, cognitively, psychologically and emotionally.”

Who should get a Massage?

Everyone can benefit from a massage. Whether looking for therapeutic massage if you have severe muscle tension, chronic pain, or if you are simply stressed out and need a more relaxing Swedish massage.

Massage therapy is an effective treatment for relieving pain and muscle tension, reducing stress, and improving overall physical and mental health. Many people enjoy a massage because it produces feelings of relaxation and rejuvenation, but also for the relief they continue to feel afterwards.

Depending on the clients’ preference, a massage can last from 30 to 120 minutes. A regular massage is highly recommended, weekly, biweekly or even monthly, especially if you’re suffering from chronic pain, you have a stressful job, lots of manual labor, or even if you sit at a desk for 40+ hours a week.
