The power of massage

TREATMENT-LANDING-PAGE-28-253x380Massage works by tapping into the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself, generating a host of positive changes along the way to enhance your health, fitness and general well being.

You’ll no doubt already know that massage is a tried and tested route to deep relaxation, but there’s so much more to it than that — much that is increasingly borne out by independent medical research.

Among the known benefits of massage are…

  • improved blood circulation
  • higher oxygen uptake
  • enhanced lymphatic system circulation, allowing for better disposal of toxins
  • restored joint mobility and flexibility
  • diminished aches and pain
  • increased endorphin release — the ‘feel good’ hormone!
  • decreased stress, anxiety and depression, especially when associated with eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic fatigue syndrome (ME)
