Holistic massage comes from the Greek word ‘holos’ meaning ‘whole’ and, as such, treats the person as a complete package with the aim of balancing the mind and body to promote health.
Massage is a hands-on therapy that has been used by many cultures for centuries to help alleviate a wide range of disorders. A wonderful complementary therapy, massage is a positive way of comforting a person and easing unpleasant symptoms. By receiving a massage you are helping yourself to reach the desirable state of relaxation and improve the quality of your rest and sleep. Massage may further stimulate the immune system (great in the winter months when colds are rife), which in turn helps you fight disease and improves your body’s natural ability to heal itself once the restricting factors are removed.
Potentially, massage can benefit you in many ways. The most common reasons people choose massage are for relaxation, to loosen stiffness in the joints, remove aches and pains, plus tone up and lose weight as part of a controlled eating plan and fitness regime. Anyone may benefit both physiologically and psychologically.
Above all, massage makes you feel good!
