Your skeleton is held together with the soft tissue of muscles, tendons and ligaments, if these become injured, bruised, trapped or tight they can’t work efficiently and have a negative effect on your body. Massage Effects often include: – soreness, aches, pains, poor posture and restricted movement. All of these effects can, in turn affect your moods and consequently, your life.
Massage is an easy way to begin to relieve many of these symptoms, allowing the body to return to its normal relaxed state.
Because we aren’t all the same, we now include a variety of massage treatments.
Please remember that you can control the strength of massage. Some people enjoy a really deep massage, whilst others prefer a lighter touch, always let your therapist know.
How does Massage Help?
All sorts of research evidence suggests that benefits are both physical and mental. The way we feel mentally can have a physical effect on our body, as we feel the stresses in our daily lives reflected in tight muscles, and restricted movement. Massage helps the body to relax, which in turn reduces the effects of stress.
Helpful hints if you aren't used to Massage
A lot of people are nervous about the appropriate clothing for a massage. Really it is up to the individual and whether the massage is a full body, or back neck and shoulder. The practitioner will always leave the room as you undress, and we have towels or luxury sarongs available for your use. If your problem areas are lower back, hip, buttocks or groin, then full underwear IS necessary.
- If you want to talk to the therapist during the massage, please do, but it is a chance for you to be quiet, so don’t feel you have to.
- If you find that the massage is too painful, don’t be afraid to say so. A massage that is too strong and painful can actually make the muscles more tense.
