Benefits of Massage
The practice of massage has been around for thousands of years as part of general health and well being. From the time babies are born, mothers would massage their infants to build a special loving bond, enhance their health and help improve immunity. Children would be massaged to alleviate growing pains, and ease unsettled children to sleep.
In adulthood, the practice of massage has been used to enhance physical performance, boost recovery after strenuous exercise, relieve aches and pains, and to promote general health and well being. Special oils would be rubbed into the skin to relieve dry, cracked and inflamed skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and other inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, eczema, and psoriasis.
The following are just a few of the well known benefits of massage:
Massage eases tense muscles, and induces a deep sense of relaxation, calming the mind and reducing stress, tension and anxiety.
Specialized massage techniques boost circulation which not only feed the skin and muscles with nutrients, but it also helps to drain waste and toxins. Massage helps to reduces puffiness, cellulite, tones & firms the skin and promotes healing of soft tissue injuries. People with stiff joints and inflammatory skin disorder find massage extremely beneficial.
