Benefits  Of  Massage Is Good Medicine

 

 

 

 

As you lie on the table, soft music draws you into the moment.

The smell of incense fills the air. The pains of age, and overstressed muscles, the sheer need to be touched all cry out for therapeutic hands to work their magic. Once the session gets underway, the problems of the world fade away into oblivion.

Evidence is showing that the more massages you can allow yourself, the better you'll feel.

 

Here's why.

 

Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures.

Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support.   

Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind- there are also specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is used as a preventative, frequent therapy.
