Massage

Massage, in its simplest form, is an instinctive therapy.Isn’t it often that, when you experience an aching sensation anywhere in the body, you try to rub and knead the pain away?

By definition, massage is the intentional and systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, to enhance health and healing. It uses different techniques to promote increased blood flow and subsequent healing.

The uniqueness of this therapy is that it doesn’t just affect the skin the largest organ in our body – but also all our sense organs. It is a method of reconnection of mind to body, and of our senses to one another.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a holistic experience that is relaxing as well as energising. This “hands-on” therapy works on the principle of manipulation of the tissues to aid the healing process.

Massage works both on the superficial and deeper layers of muscles, ligaments, joints, connective tissues and other areas of the body including the nervous, digestive and respiratory systems. It also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system in elimination of toxins.


How does this work

Applying rhythmic compression to the energy lines and points, together with deep stretching, releases tension from the entire system. Massage is nurturing and offers a means to break down barriers we set around ourselves. This experience results in a sense of relaxation and feeling of well-being.
