Holistic massage is a most soothing way to reduce stress, ease aches and pains and induce a feeling of relaxation and invigoration.
Massage of the soft tissues of the body, particularly the muscles where the effects of tension and stress are usually felt, and can have an immediate physical and psychological effect, promoting that ‘feel good’ factor by the release of endorphins.
Holistic massage is the most natural non-invasive way to a healthy body and mind, having been used for centuries. The Chinese were practicing massage as long ago as 1000BC; in India sacred ancient Hindu texts include massage in their guidelines for hygiene and well-being; Egyptian tombs contain evidence that shows massage was also a part of their culture.
The benefits of regular massages are well documented, and felt very quickly. Massage can keep you supple as well as help regulate and balance the body’s systems, when used in conjunction with good diet and exercise. If your body feels good, you feel good.
