Massage

The Miracle of Massage

Massage is one of the oldest healing therapies known to man to relieve pain, restore, provide comfort, boost energy levels and rejuvenate. There are four basic types of massage movements, they are all important in their own way. If you imagine a band, each instrument is unique and beautiful, but if blended together well it can be amazing. Also each person has different musical tastes so not everyone would be happy with the same song, and it’s the same in massage.

When massaging  you have to orchestrate effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement along with a variation in pressure and rhythm over different body parts, to enable the optimum result for the individual client.

This is achieved via reduction of cortisol and lactic acid, and increasing the levels of dopamine, seratonin and endorphines.
