Looking After You: Benefits of a Massage

Looking After You: Benefits of a Massage

Massage is often seen as a luxury however with increasing stress levels and mental health becoming more of a concern, massage and holistic treatments can really help balance and restore the effects that stress may cause.

Massage is now increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. So “treating” yourself to a massage may have more of a benefit than you may think.

Having regular massage treatments can help with increased stress levels and aid in relaxation. Reduce pain and muscle tensions whilst also improving circulation and helping with energy levels. It can also help with lowering heart rate and blood pressure as well as boosting the immune function.

While more research is needed we are also starting to see massage being helpful for anxiety, digestive disorders, headaches and nerve pain. Massage often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
There are lots of different types of massage using techniques to focus on specific areas of the body. With the options of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Aromatherapy or reflexology there is something for everyone.
