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 with 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 skin by increasing circulation and assisting in detoxification.
But for most people, massage is simply a way to destress, relieve tired muscles, relax, and enjoy a little luxury.
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.
