WHAT IS MASSAGE THERAPY?

 

Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues(the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.

 

WHAT IS A HOT STONE MASSAGE?

 

Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times. Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage particularly tight areas to release tension in your muscles, relax your body and calm your spirit.

 

SOME BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

• Relaxing
• Soothing
• Healing
• Eases tension, stiffness, and pain
• Improves circulation
• Enhances well-being

 

Effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weaknesses. Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the reciever with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually.
