Massage & Reflexology

 

Why Massage?

Massage and Reflexology are both the oldest therapies known to man, as far back as 3,000 BC. The ancient Greeks and Romans used massage to preserve health and aid healing.

Massage is used to relax the body and mind and relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Many modern health problems we suffer from can be directly linked back to high stress levels. Touch stimulates the brain to produce endorphins. However a massage is far more than just a treatment that makes us feel good.

Recent studies show that massage enhances:

  • The blood circulation and immune system
  • Lowers the level of our stress hormones
  • Stimulates metabolism and also
  • Relieves tense muscles and muscle pain
  • Promotes mental and physical relaxation

Therefore: People who have regular massages are physically and mentally healthier and therefore less likely to be ill.

So, everyone can benefit from a massage?

Everybody can benefit from a massage, however if you suffer from certain conditions or you have any of the following symptoms please follow this advice -

  • If you have a fever, thrombosis, flue or a severe cold it is best not to have a massage, because of the influence on the metabolism and the stimulation of the blood circulation.
  • Places that have to be avoided in a massage are: burns, skin infections, bruising, inflammation, wounds, open wounds and fractures.
  • It is possible to massage pregnant women and people with heart and vascular disease but only after having consulted a doctor.
