Remedial Massage Therapy
THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Therapeutic massage has an enormous impact on all the systems of the body.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
Massage can have a very powerful sedative effect on the nerves, melting away the stress and strains of everyday life. Headaches can be relieved, patterns of insomnia broken and states of anger, impatience and irritation soothed.
THE MUSCULAR SYSTEM
Muscular aches and pains, fatigue and stiffness can all be successfully treated with the healing art of massage. Cramp is reduced, old scar tissue broken down and good muscle tone can be induced.
THE SKELETAL SYSTEM
Disorders of the skeletal system, such as arthritis, benefit enormously from massage. Stiffness of the joints is alleviated and pain can be reduced considerably.
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
Accumulated waste substances are rapidly eliminated by the action of massage. Swellings, which may accumulate around an injury, can also be dispersed.
THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM
Mucus and bronchial secretions can be loosened and eliminated from the lungs by performing percussive movements over the upper back and chest.
THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
Massage encourages the elimination of waste matter from the colon. Constipation is relieved and digestion improved.
THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM
Menstrual problems such as PMS, period pain, irregular menstruation and the menopause will all improve with regular therapeutic massage.
