Massage - natural relaxation & healing

Photograph of man receiving neck massage Therapeutic or Swedish massage is the kneading of soft tissues of the body (skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments). This leads to muscle relaxation, improved blood circulation and the release of endorphins (the body's natural pain killers). Human touch in itself brings healing.

The benefits of massage are:

  • Tones weak muscles and relaxes tight muscles
  • Improves the circulation of blood, oxygen and nutrients
  • Helps the body to detoxify
  • Reduction in muscle pain
  • Increased joint mobility

Massage leads onto increased relaxation, and reduction in stress levels. This in turn leads to higher energy levels and improved sleep. Your friends, family and colleagues will notice your increased sense of well-being. Dr David Peters, professor of integrated healthcare at Westminster University, London, says:

Evidence for the therapeutic benefits of massage, from both research studies and patient reports, is very strong indeed and many doctors support its use. When practised by well-trained therapists it appears to be safe and to enhance general feelings of well-being.
