Massage is one of the oldest therapies in existence. It is an amazing tool for stress relief and body maintenance. It improves physical and emotional health and wellbeing, bringing balance to both our body and mind. Some benefits of massage include reduced stress levels, improved mood, reduced muscle tension, better immune function, lower blood pressure, reduced pain, sleep improvement and reduced anxiety. On a deeper level, massage may raise awareness of your own body and promote a sense of connection. You may choose to add a therapeutic steam treatment after your massage.
In preparation of your massage, make sure that you don’t come to your appointment straight after a large meal nor on a empty stomach. Ideally, eat something light in the two hours before your appointment. You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire before your massage, and we will go over any areas of pain or health issues before we start your massage.
