Massage involves manipulation of the muscles and soft tissues to relieve tension and promote relaxation. The practitioner will discuss your needs and establish the parts of the body where the massage will be most beneficial.
Massage has been said to enhance the healing process from a variety of illnesses by reducing pain and anxiety, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins. Multiple massage treatments can improve sleep and there is some evidence to suggest that it can alleviate the symptoms of depression.
