Massage is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect. Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and psychological changes for general wellbeing.

What are the ‘real’ benefits?

Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering from what is now commonly encountered work related stress. Massage will not only aid with mental relaxation but will work on physical symptoms of back and neck pain that comes from sitting for an extended period of time at a desk or from physical labor.

The importance of taking regular massage has heightened in recent times as more people recognize how beneficial it is as a way to counteract the effects of sitting in front of a computer screen daily.

 

Many people wait until they are already in pain or suffering spinal injuries before turning to massage, but why let it get that bad? It is a good idea to take regular massage as a preventative measure so that such injuries do not occur. Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of wellbeing for optimum physical and mental health, helping you to achieve your goals.

 

Massage is a very ancient healing art, which was known in different parts of the world already thousands of years ago. Throughout history, the magical power of touch was widely practiced by Indian Ayurvedic healers, Chinese accupressurists, Tibetan lamas, and even European “white witches” who used massage together with herbs, spells, and powerful amulets to oust negative energies and cure people from diseases.

 

The modern Western form of massage, which you, most likely, will experience at a spa, clinic, or sports therapy center, emerged in the 19th century in Stockholm, and, since then, Swedish massage has become very popular thanks to its many enthusiastic followers.

Massage is a way to do something for your self that pays off both physically and emotionally.
