Massage is the use of hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body, particularly the muscles.
It can be used for relaxation, stimulation or rehabilitation of the whole body or part of it. It promotes suppleness of the muscles, improves circulation and reduces stress.
Modern massage is based on the techniques developed by Per Henrik Ling (1776 - 1839) a physiologist and fencing master. He was from Sweden and massage is still referred to as Swedish massage because of his influence.
Massage is a reputable and recognised therapy that is beneficial to all body systems and is a natural and effective way to treat both physical and psychological conditions.
Soothing - massage uses touch to soothe and relax the body. Since 75% of disease is thought to be caused by stress, massage which reduces stress will help improve the health of the client.
Stimulating - the systems of the body are stimulated and activated by massage. It therefore encourages improved circulation, aids digestion, waste removal, neural communication, invigorates and relaxes muscles thus preventing spasm and stiffness and improves the appearance of the skin
Comforting - massage is a safe non threatening, non invasive and natural therapy that has psychological as well as physical benefits
