Why Have A Massage?

The importance of touch in the maintenance of a healthy mind and body is as essential as healthy eating and exercise. Skin is the largest organ in the body and is packed with nerve endings.

An immediate benefit of massage is a feeling of calm and deep relaxation. This is due to the release of the neurotransmitters, chemicals in the brain known as endorphins which produce a feeling of well being.

Studies have shown that high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol & adrenalin impair the immune system, and massage can aid in the reduction of these.

Physiologically, massage influences us physically, mentally and emotionally. Therefore it influences the functioning of the body as a whole.


Babies right through to the elderly can benefit from the therapeutic properties of massage. Massage can be used to help treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Whiplash
  • Chronic Pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Neck/Back Pain
  • Breathing problems
  • Posture
  • Insomnia
  • Poor Circulation
  • Digestive Problems
  • Headaches/Migraines

How you look after yourself is up to you. Prevention is better than cure! Make the right choice and look after your body - have a massage.

What Can I Expect In My First Treatment?

You need to arrive 10 minutes prior to you appointment to fill in a form. The Massage Therapist will ask some questions to determine a holistic picture of your health, review your health history and design a session that meets your goals within the allotted time.
