Offering a range of treatments from pregnancy and postnatal services to remedial massage, we have a treatment to suit every body.
What is Massage?
Considered one of the oldest healing methods, massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.
What are the benefits?
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemical that produces feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced.
Some of the physical benefits of massage include:
- reduced muscle tension
- improved circulation
- stimulation of the lymphatic system
- reduction of stress hormones
- increased joint mobility and flexibility
- improved skin tone
- improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
- heightened mental alertness
- reduced anxiety and depression.
