Massage is a hands-on physical touch or pressure applied to the soft tissues of your body. Massage is a great method to help your body heal itself and increase your health and well-being by removing blockages in your bodys meridians. Meridians are the energetic pathways in your body.
You may feel these blockages in many ways: pain, tightness, aches, tension, stiffness, or soreness, anxiety, depression, low energy, digestive disorders, headaches, insomnia, or illness. Some common types of massage are: aromatherapy, reflexology, trigger point, shiatsu, acupressure, swedish, deep tissue, sports, neuromuscular, acupuncture, thai, rolfing, and pregnancy massage.
The ancient healing art of massage that dates back thousands of years can also be combined with other tools, such as essential oils, hot stones, tuning forks, music, and energy therapies for even more effective results. Massage helps reduce stress, anxiety, depression, relieve aches and pains, helps recover from injuries, illness, and increases general wellness.
Why is massage so effective? Massage is a holistic approach that doesn’t just focus on the site of the pain, but focuses on the entire body system. Massage helps your muscular, skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous and all the other systems of your body. The benefit of human touch also helps you feel connected and become more aware of your mind-body connection.
