Benefits of Massage

Massage has many potential benefits

  • Pain relief and stress reduction.
  • It can also help to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression and improve sleep quality.
  • Massage may be particularly beneficial for people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia.

Reflexology

First developed by ancient healers in Egypt, China, and India, reflexology — also called regional therapy or zone therapy — refers to the practice of applying pressure to certain points on the feet (and, sometimes, the hands).

Each point, or “zone,” is believed to correspond to a particular area of the body.

Aromatherapy

The use of essential oils—such as lavender, peppermint, lemon, ginger, and tea tree oil—into a massage session to promote relaxation and healing.

Breathe and bliss out – aromatherapy’s fragrant whispers soothe your mind and body.

Soothing Your Body and Mind: Experience the Healing Power of Massage

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage—one of the most common types of massage therapy—involves manipulating the body’s soft tissues with long strokes, light pressure, and kneading or tapping. It’s designed to promote relaxation, loosen up tight muscles, and improve circulation. It can help with:

  • Reduce joint and muscle pain.
  • Decrease heart rate, blood pressure, and anxiety levels.
  • Boost immune function and reduce inflammation.

Sports Massage

Though sports massage is popular among athletes and people who exercise frequently it has become increasing popular with people with postural issues associated with work – for example driving long hours and desk working.  It is specifically designed to prevent and treat sports injuries. The techniques used can vary what muscles are most affected by the sport and where you’ve experienced an injury.

Sports massage can help with various aspects of athletic performance and muscle recovery. According to a meta-analysis, sports massage effectively improves flexibility and reduces delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) among elite and amateur athletes.

A Sports massage treatment may also include Muscle Energy Techniques, KT taping or cupping

Hot Stone Massage

Usually combined with Swedish massage, hot stone massage therapy aims to improve blood flow and reduce muscle tension through the strategic placement of smooth, hot stones on certain parts of the body. Your massage therapist may also use massage oil to allow for smoother strokes and a more soothing experience.

Hot stone massage has many of the same benefits as other kinds of massage therapy, from reducing inflammation and relieving anxiety to boosting energy levels and mood. One 2019 study found that hot stone massage significantly improved sleep quality among people undergoing kidney dialysis

According to clinical studies, reflexology may be helpful in:

  • Relieving joint and muscle pain
  • Treating insomnia
  • Reducing limb swelling during pregnancy
  • Boosting energy levels
  • Improving respiratory function
  • Treating certain cancer-related symptoms, such as shortness of breath
  • Reducing the tingling, burning, and/or prickling pain associated with multiple sclerosis (MS)
