Full Body Massage

What is Massage?

It is the use of hands, or mechanical means to manipulate the soft tissues of the body – particularly the muscles. It can be used for relaxation, stimulation or rehabilitation of the whole or part of the body.  The word ‘Massage’ originates from many different languages – in some it means ‘to knead’ – others ‘to rub’ – others ‘to touch or feel’.  All of these  are fundamental to massage.

Massage is a non-threatening, non-invasive and very natural therapy.  It soothes, stimulates, comforts and is instinctive.   Often when we hurt ourselves – we rub or touch the the affected place – massage is an extension of this instinctive and natural method of soothing aches and pains.  Most people from children to adults can benefit from massage treatments.
