 Massage can help you

Most people would agree a massage makes them feel good. But many probably don't realise exactly how good a regular massage is for their overall health. How about if they knew massage could improve performance, aid recovery, prevent and eliminate injuries, reduce stress and even enhance metabolism and circulation! With so many alternative health treatments available it's little wonder people get confused about where to go when they're not feeling the best. But, while new health therapies continue to emerge, think about this. the Chinese began using massage to heal the human body as long ago as 5,000BC and it's still being used today. Now there has to be something to be said for that.

Massage has so many other benefits

  • Increase the blood's oxygen capacity by 10-15%
  • Help loosen contracted, shortened muscles and stimulate weak, muscles. This muscle "balancing" can even help posture and promote more efficient movement
  • Speed recovery from exercise-induced fatigue
  • Increase production of gastric juices, saliva and urine
  • Increase excretion of nitrogen, inorganic phosphorus, and sodium chloride (salt). This suggests that the metabolic rate increases
  • Balance the nervous system by soothing or stimulating it, depending on which effect is needed
  • Improves function of the oil and sweat glands that lubricate, clean and cool the skin. Though, inflexible skin can become softer and more supple
  • Indirectly or directly stimulating nerves that supply internal organs can dilate the organs' blood vessels, improving blood supply.
