Holistic massage combines several techniques such as acupressure and Swedish massage to give you a relaxing, but thorough, treatment.
Holistic massage takes into account the whole of the person in treatment, from emotional and mental influences to everyday lifestyle choices and physical posture. This allows the therapist to treat problems in a more rounded and even way as it addresses both the physical and mental aspects of a problem.
Massage helps to stimulate and relax the skin and muscle tissue, easing discomfort. It also increases lymph flow which brings more immune cells into the body, helping the body to recover faster from illnesses, or cope better with long term illnesses. Stimulation of the lymphatic system also aids in the removal of toxins from the body which can reduce inflammation and swelling.
Hormones such as Endorphin, Oxycocin and Serotonin are also released during massage and these interact with the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce the body’s perception of pain as well as increase the immune response and could even produce improved mood, sleep patterns and reduction of anxiety.
Massage also promotes deeper breathing by encouraging the body into a relaxed sleep-like state. This can regulate breathing and strengthen the respiratory muscles.
