About Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy, often thought of as a luxury, is actually one of the oldest forms of health care and is fast becoming an integral part of the treatment and aftercare provided by many medical facilities.
Massage techniques encourage the body’s natural healing ability by improving the circulation of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, ligaments and organs and aid in the removal of toxins.
Regular massage therapy is effective in the treatment of many chronic physical ailment and injuries and the benefits range from relaxation, stress relief and pain management to boosting immune system function, aiding faster recovery and enhancing wellbeing.
