Massage therapy

Massage is the sharing of touch, yet it goes further then skin deep, deeper even then muscles and bones - a good, caring massage penetrates right to the depth of your being because touch is a very important part of human contact. It helps us feel connected and loved by those around us. Massage uses touch through rubbing or kneading of parts of the body to aid circulation, relax the muscles, or provide sensual stimulation.

Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy. The basic goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being.

Physically, its benefits include relaxing and toning of the muscles, assisting the venous flow of blood, soothing the nervous system, encouraging lymphatic flow, stretching the connective tissue of joints etc. On a mental level, it relieves stress and anxiety and also helps you to  become more conscious of your body as a whole. Clients also tend to experience better sleep, improved concentration, reduced anxiety, and an overall increased sense of well-being.
