Massage is a holistic health treatment dating back to 2,700 B.C. Swedish Massage has its origins in the nineteenth century, is a light form of massage using oils, and is the most popular form of massage today.
Modern studies have shown many medical benefits of massage, including: reducing anxiety, depression, anger and stress; associated hormonal changes (reduction of cortisol, increase of dopamine and serotonin); improved sleep; reduced lower back pain; and improved blood sugar and blood pressure.
Massage can improve the quality of the skin by increasing circulation and assisting in detoxification.
But for most people, massage is simply a way to destress, relieve tired muscles, relax, and unwind.
I offer 60 minute and 90 minute massages at £45 and £70 respectiveley. I use only organic oils for massage, and as with other treatments, work from Salus Wellness clinic on Wednesdays.
