Massage may help to improve the circulation, relax and tone tired, tense muscles and have a calming effect on the nervous system – which may benefit many common aches and pains and promote an overall sense of relaxation and well-being.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Treatment focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue aiming to release chronic muscle tension and stiffness by using deep pressure massage techniques on the affected areas.
A few of the conditions, which may benefit from massage, are:
- Muscular aches and pains – particularly backache
- Joint pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Sleep disorders
- Poor circulation
- Digestive problems
When essential oils are used in combination with massage the benefits of both are significantly increased. Please see Holistic Aromatherapy for more information on treatment.
