Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is more than relaxing me-time. Studies continue to prove the physical, and emotional benefits of even a single massage therapy session. 

Relieves Stress
Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels – all of which help reduce daily stress.

Encourages Relaxation
Relax. Reset. Repeat. Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode: an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.

Improves Posture
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.

Improves Circulation
The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in, resulting improved body function.

Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure has more misconceptions than nearly any other medical condition. But one effective way to stave off high blood pressure naturally is massage therapy.

Relaxes Muscles
Got neck, back or muscle pain? Odds are, sitting all day at the office is the culprit. Massage gets to the root of persistent pain by relaxing tense muscles.

Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion
As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.

Promotes Deeper and Easier Breathing
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in reliving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.

Relieves Headaches
Millions of people suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Massage helps ease the pressure and pain, which can also reduce the chance and frequency of headaches.

Strengthens the Immune System
Studies indicate that regular massage can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity–the activity level of the body’s natural "killer cells".

Enhances Post-Operative Rehabilitation
Massage helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. This makes massage therapy a great supplement to post-operative rehabilitation.

Improves Rehabilitation After Injury
Rehabilitation can be frustrating. A continual massage program can accelerate the recovery process, as well as help you relax and stay motivated.


The process
Regular treatments will have an accumulative affect. Your holistic massage therapy usually last between 30 – 90 minutes, depending on which treatment you have chosen. You will be given time to undress privately (leaving undergarments on) and asked to lie down on my comfortable massage table.

You will then be covered with fresh, clean towels and will never be fully exposed at any point during the whole treatment, you always remain covered. Only the area being worked on at that moment will be uncovered. If you become worried or feel uncomfortable during any treatment don’t hesitate to say so, I shall stop immediately and give you any time and help that you may need. All massages can leave you feeling thirsty so it is important to drink a sufficient amount of fresh, clean (preferably filtered) water.
