Massage Therapy FAQ
How Does Massage Work?
Remedial massage works by releasing your aching and/or tight muscle groups,
tendons and ligaments. Your remedial massage will increase your circulation
which improves your healing ability and provides suppleness to the muscles,
giving them a greater range of movement, this reduces the risk of future
injury and illness.
This will help your body to restore to its optimum level of function,
promoting a lighter, healthier feeling overall.

Touch is one of the most crucial, yet often underrated, of the senses - all
ages benefit from human touch. Massage has been shown to benefit the body on
a number of levels because it relaxes and revitalises a weary or ailing body
through a reassuring and caring touch.
Many studies have proven that massage promotes state of mind and
mood-altering serotonin and endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals that affect
development in children, as well as, improving emotional and physical
well-being in adults.

improve joint and muscle aches especially in painful areas of the neck and
back, and even increase immunity to colds and flu!
