Massage therapy dates back thousands of years with the first written records found in China approximately 3000BC and Egypt 2500BC. It is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect by applying pressure to them. Soft tissues can be made more pliable through massage and it promotes an increase in blood and lymph flow. The benefits of massage are not only physical but psychological, assisting to reduce stress, anxiety and promote a general sense of wellbeing. Massage techniques are commonly applied with hands, fingers, elbows and forearms. Whether you require a moment of relaxation, improved joint range, reduced muscle tension or relief from pain, a therapeutic massage will enhance your overall sense of physical and psychological well-being.
