Holistic Massage

Holistic Massage benefits both the mind and body tremendously. It is rare that we take an hour to lie down, close our eyes and just ‘be’. An hour’s peace and quiet away from ringing phones and all the demands placed on us, has a wonderfully relaxing and restorative effect.

Holistic Massage helps taut muscles learn to relax and this, combined with strokes to aid lymphatic drainage, helps to release toxins. The benefits can be felt by all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. Stiffness and soreness in muscles can be due to a wide range of physical factors. These include overly energetic sessions in the gym or carrying too much shopping home. Poor posture through being seated at a desk all day or excessive time behind the steering wheel can also cause problems. The causes are not always physical however.

Emotional tension and the day to day stresses that life throws at us, can manifest in headaches caused by a stiff neck and shoulders. The body generally tenses up in response to stress. Massage can help people to deal with emotional problems such as grief and depression.

Elderly people benefit from Holistic Massage as well, as it can be difficult to get around. This may result in a lack of exercise and muscle atrophy. Holistic Massage will stimulate blood flow and help the release of those feel-good endorphins that make us feel smiley inside. This wonderfully relaxing therapy is suited for those who prefer a gentle pressured massage.
