Massage treatments are beneficial to the body and mind. Our lives are all very busy and we take on stress in our body and mind without realising. Manual labour, repetitive movements and working for long periods of time without moving all cause stress on your body which can be relieved with massage.

Massage manually stimulates the muscles of the body aiding in the breakdown of tension nodules and leaves the skin feeling smoother and softer. During massage the temperature of the skin is increased, therefore increasing blood flow which helps with distributing nutrients around the body and eliminating toxins. Regular massage will assist in the skin texture and appearance, and muscle tone can be improved.

By using flowing movements towards the heart, this increases blood flow and aids our body in lymphatic drainage.
