Massage therapy is used for a multitude of purposes and has been practised since many decades ago. Massage is a type of therapy that involves manipulating a person’s muscles and soft tissue to improve health, function or wellbeing.

There are many types of massage such as remedial, aromatherapy, myotherapy and much more.

Massage can ease off pain and tension

Massage is one of the treatments that can be used to manage many health disorders, both physical and psychological such as back pain, soft tissue injuries, muscle soreness, headaches, anxiety, stress and insomnia. It is a great form of therapy that can alleviate pain for some physical conditions and promote wellbeing for the mind.

Massage to promote relaxation

Massage is not only for disorders and many people without any issues can still enjoy a massage as it can promote wellbeing and relaxation. Massage therapy can release endorphins in the brain which gives feelings of wellbeing and reduces the level of stress hormones. By increasing circulation and decreasing stress hormones, massage can also give the immune system a boost.
