Massage is a technique which comes from many traditions. In 3000BC massage was found in China and Japan and is also documented in Indian, Greek and Roman history. Touch has the most amazing healing properties. It heals both physically, mentally and chemically.
It increases blood flow, thus increasing nourishment to the cells of the body and strengthening the immune system. Massage relieves tension in muscles leaving them more supple. It calms the mind, relieving tension caused by stress. The relaxed state provides a wonderful sense of calm within the body and mind. Toxins are flushed through the lymphatic system, which is assisted with massage techniques, allowing the blood vessels to increase nourishment to the body. It benefits the digestive system to eliminate toxins and absorb vitamins and minerals.
Massage eases and soothes muscular tension and decongests tissues, improving lymphatic drainage as well as strengthening the immune system and overall health.
