The Benefits of Massage

by Samantha Collins on 6th February 2018

Massage is the use of hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body, particularly muscles. It can be used for relaxation, stimulation or rehabilitation. It promotes suppleness of the muscles, improves circulation and reduces stress. Massage benefits the whole body, both physiologically and psychologically.
The physiological benefits include:
  • Relieve tired, stiff joints
  • Promotes general relaxation
  • Improves skin tone
  • Encourage better circulation
  • Encourage sleep

The psychological benefits include:

  • Reduce tension and stress
  • Relax the body and mind
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Increase energy levels

Massage is beneficial to all body systems and is a natural and effective way to treat physical conditions.
