Everybody needs a massage
BIG body, small body, tall body, short body, black body, white body. Everybody needs a massage.
Although it is gaining high momentum these days, massage therapy has been around for centuries. It is an ancient tradition of treating clients by using touching methods to manipulate the soft tissues of the body.
People seek out massage therapy for various reasons; to relieve muscle tension, to relax, to rehabilitate sports injuries, to manage stress, anxiety and depression and for general wellness. It’s a personal choice really.
As an active fitness enthusiast, I love to get sport massages. This helps relieve tension in my muscles and prepares me for more physical performance. I also enjoy Shiatsu massages, which are a bit more relaxing but I can have my therapist focus on specific areas. Occasionally I do the Swedish because it sends me to heaven.
If anything, I’d advise anyone who does not get massages to try it out. You have no idea how much tension you are carrying around with you until you have a therapist lay their magical hands on you.
Start with something you feel more comfortable with like a head, shoulder and back massage. I’m not exaggerating when I say, you will feel brand new. You will feel like a million bucks.
There are over 100 massage techniques, which treat different needs and give various benefits. Massages can be given in the comfort of your home, or in a spa. What is important is that the environment where it is performed has a relaxing feel. It is also important to always ensure that the person giving you massage treatments is qualified for it.
The following are some of the massages offered by our therapists;
Aromatherapy massage: great for emotional healing. Can help, boost your mood, reduce stress and anxiety, reduce symptoms of depression, relieve muscle tension, and relieve pain. This one is not recommended to people sensitive to smells or essential oils.
Deep tissue massage: It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle pain, and anxiety. May not be a good idea if you are too sensitive to pressure.
Swedish massage: It is the best for those who have not done massages before or those people who are sensitive to touch. It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.
Sports massage: Everyone who does active sports must have done a sport massage. You just have to. This one can be done half body or full body. Sport massages are great for people who have repetitive injuries due to muscles used repetitively due to sport or fitness activities. It may help improve flexibility and sports performance and reduce your risk for injuries.
Shiatsu massage: It works the whole body, but your therapist may focus on areas of your body that need extra attention. Great for emotional and physical calm and relaxation.
Prenatal massage: This one is not recommended in the first trimester. Once you are cleared by your doctor, this massage can help reduce pregnancy body aches, reduce stress, and ease muscle tension.
