MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage Therapy involves the application of pressure and the use a of movement to our soft connective tissue structures the body. Massage Techniques vary but all physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, relieving muscle soreness, pain, increasing circulation, flexibility and mobility.

We have all instinctively rubbed or held pressure to an area we have hurt or caused trauma to, it is just something we do, so saying that: we could also mention that massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of natural aids to self healing and has been used in ancient cultures all over the world as a form of traditional medicine.

Therapeutic massage improves the functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems. An increase in productivity to these body systems results in an accelerated rate to which the body recovers from injury and illness.
