The benefits of therapeutic massage are not a recent discovery. Its value is recognized throughout the world and many cultures have practised it for centuries.
A calm and relaxed body can bring about changes beyond the purely physical. Although the effects of a therapeutic massage are often dramatic in terms of relief of pain or tension, many clients also notice general changes in the way they cope with the stresses and strains of modern life. A relaxed body allows the the mind to come to rest and take stock of the activity we surround ourselves with. In turn, a calm mind can be instrumental in fighting off physical ailments.
