A natural way to restore balance and well-being
Massage has been practised in its many forms for thousands of years providing a natural therapy with both physical and psychological benefits. The Swedish massage system was developed in the early 19th century and is widely practised for its broad range of techniques covering the full extent of the body. Swedish massage principally works on the muscles and in doing so will aid circulation of the blood and stimulate the lymphatic system. Common benefits include:
Reduction of muscle tension
Reduction of stress hormones
Improved skin tone
Benefits come not only from the massage technique itself, but also the effect of a caring human touch, something we too often deny to ourselves in our modern way of life.
To gain the greatest benefit from your massage, the environment plays an important part in the sensory experience. For this reason, to receive massage in your own home has many advantages, especially if you can prepare a space that is warm, comfortable, quiet and familiar. There is no need to drive home from the salon or spa afterwards and you can take your time to continue to enjoy the relaxation as long as you like after the treatment is finished.
