is one of the oldest forms of natural treatment, its use being recorded
over many centuries in different cultures. It is now becoming more
widely accepted, even in conventional hospitals. Three types of
massage are offered:
Massage combines the healing power of touch with a wide range
of manipulations of the soft tissue of the body, muscles, tendons
and ligaments. Massage may help relieve stress and tension,
relax tense muscles and improve muscle tone, speed up recovery from
sporting activities, improve circulation, stimulate the lymphatic
system, aid the digestive system and release blocked energy.
Head Massage has been practiced in India for thousands of years
and remains popular today. It is extremely simple, effective and
enjoyable, and may help to relieve stress-related disorders, such as headaches
and migraines, anxiety and tension. It may also help promote the
growth of healthy hair, bring mental clarity and increase the circulation
to the brain.
Sports Massage Therapy has several uses and is not just aimed
at treating a sporting injury. It may also help with overuse
injuries received from repetition; or purely to free up tense or
sore muscles from all your hard effort in your training program. It
may also be a preventative therapy. Collectively massage,
rehabilitation and stretching are powerful tools and may in the long
term make everyday activities easier.
Swedish Massage was developed by Per Henrik Ling in the
eighteenth and nineteenth century. Swedish born, Ling was a
physiologist and gymnastic instructor. It is his combination of
massage movements that are today known as “Swedish Massage”. This
type of massage is aimed at total relaxation and is may be ideal after a
hard day’s work or indeed a hard week at work.
