Massage

I specialise in customising a Holistic style massage that enables me to incorporate Reiki, Reflexology or Meditation to gain optimum results, providing many benefits to aid relaxation and wellbeing.

 

Your appointment will commence with a consultation where we can discuss your requirements and personalise a massage that’s perfect for only you.

 

Benefits of Massage:

 

Manipulation of the muscles through massage aids in loosening and relaxing stiffened muscles.  It is said that massage helps break down accumulated fat underneath the skin, thus aiding weight loss.

 

Regular massage improves the flexibility of the joints and makes the body more capable of a wider range of movements. Fluidity of movement brought about by regular massage also reduces the probability of getting muscle injuries. It also improves posture.

 

The circulation of blood in the body is enhanced through massage. Improved circulation means improved supply of nutrients to individual cells of the body, not to mention improved transport of wastes from these cells. Improved circulation also leads to clearer, softer and healthier skin, as the skin cells become more nourished with oxygen and nutrients.

 

Massage also aids in the stimulation of the lymphatic system, boosting the body’s immunity and natural defence mechanisms. A healthy lymphatic system means less susceptibility to various illnesses and the body’s heightened ability to heal itself.

 

Massage helps remove the feeling of pain in the body by stimulating the release of endorphins, which are the body’s feel-good hormones. Because massage relieves pain regardless of cause, it also lessens the body’s need for pain-killing medication.

 

Another type of hormones that massage helps to release is called cortisol, which is responsible for lowering the stress levels of the body. With lowered stress levels, the body becomes more capable of healing itself. It also lowers blood pressure, allows the body to breathe more properly and lessens feelings of anxiety.

 

Massage fulfils the body’s need for touch. Regular massage improves emotional well-being by allowing the person to feel cared for and nurtured. Such not only lowers stress levels but also reduces a person’s tendency to feel anxious and sink into depression.

 

With massage, the mind is made to feel calm and relaxed. Such a state of the mind is good for enhancing focus and improving concentration, thereby making the mind more creative and productive.
