Benefits of Massage
Muscle holding patterns lead to postural difficulties. Massage realigns the body; through soft tissue manipulation, mobilisation & stretches; reminding the body to function at its best.
Chronic insomnia causes fatigue and problems with concentration. This can effect a person’s mood and well-being. Massage therapy can improve sleep reducing fatigue and helping you feel like yourself again.
Chronic stress has negative effects on the body. Massage reduces stress hormones cortisol & adrenaline, & increases our levels of dopamine and serotonin which make us feel happy.
Poor blood flow can lead to tired, aching muscles. Massage focusses on areas of tight muscle increasing blood flow to the area. Toxins are then flushed out of the muscles and cleared through the lymphatic system.
Massage relieves muscle tension, increasing mobility and reducing stiffness in joints. Massage helps with tension headaches and other common conditions associated with muscle tension.
Many digestive issues can be worsened by stress. Relieving stress can encourage healthy digestive function. Massage also has a stimulating effect on the digestive organs, encouraging peristalsic flow of the intestines.
