What is massage and why do you need it?

Massage is the process by which we manipulate all the soft tissues of the body (e.g. ligaments, muscles, tendons)

Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.

What are the benefits of massage?

  • Massage has been used for centuries and is probably one of the oldest forms of healing. For centuries, human touch has been shown to be essential for emotional and physical healing.

Massage is believed to deliver a myriad of benefits some of which are listed below. It was generally used to relieve pain or tight muscles, improve circulation, relax and distress individuals etc but massage is now being used more and more as more than just a relaxing treatment. Some of the benefits of massage include;

  • To help you relax and reduce stress
  • To improve muscle function through lengthening and increased blood and nutrient flow
  • To reduce the risk of injury by maintaining muscles in the right length and with fewer adhesions
  • To reduce muscular tightness
  • To help correct muscular imbalances from poor posture and bad movement patterns
  • To awaken muscles and improve the circulation of blood and nutrients to joints and other soft tissue
  • Improve the removal of waste products such as lactic acid and urea
  • Improve the activity of the immune system
  • Help relieve pain and tension
  • Help stimulate the release of endorphins and reduce stress hormones

These are just some of the benefits of massage. There are many types of massage and you should be aware that some forms of massage will be more helpful in certain areas e.g. sports massage for sports injury treatment than others. Other types of massage include Aromatherapy, Hot stones, Swedish, Reflexology, Deep tissue, Head massage etc
