How I can help you…
Deep tissue massage can help to ‘unstick’ congested muscles, relieving tightness and soreness particularly in those muscles that overlap joints.
It can also be used to:
Improve muscle tone * Re-model scar tissue * Remove metabolic waste
Improve circulation and lymphatic flow * Calm or stimulate nerve endings
It can be beneficial for those recovering from accidents and injuries and is often recommended for sports injuries.
Benefits of Massage
Massage can stimulate and relax the body and the mind.
The skin, blood and lymphatic systems are stimulated, which boosts circulation, aids cellular renewal and removes toxic wastes. As tense muscles relax, stiff joints loosen and nerves are soothed, an all over feeling of relaxation and well-being comes about.
With massage comes an increase in blood circulation. This helps the ex-foliation of superficial dead skin cells, tones the skin and invigorates its renewal process. Massage helps with maintenance of the collagen fibres which gives skin its elasticity and strength, and helps keep wrinkles at bay. The activity of the sweat and sebaceous glands, which lubricate and moisturise the skin, is regulated.
With the increased blood circulation, the vital nutrients circulate more effectively. Massage is very popular with sports men and women because it can improve muscle tone, restore mobility and ensure the elimination of waste products after exercise.
With regular massage, strains and sprains heal far more rapidly while calf cramps and stiff muscles can become a thing of the past. Massage before an exercise or training session will help loosen and warm up the muscles. Massage after an exercise or training session will ease sore aching limbs.
Massage dilates the blood vessels which increases blood circulation. A good circulatory system means that an efficient supply of the bloods constituents, including oxygen and essential nutrients, reaches the billions of individual cells. This is vital for the healthy functioning of the entire body, from the muscles to internal organs such as the kidney and liver.
Simultaneously, the increase in blood circulation helps to accelerate the lymphatic system, which absorbs and eliminates waste substances. Unlike the blood circulation which has the heart to pump it round, the lymphatic system has no pump of its own, and is totally dependent on muscular action for its efficiency. Massage is an important means of speeding up the flow of lymph and encouraging a more effective filtering and elimination of waste throughout the body. An efficient lymphatic system provides the body with a strong immune system to fight against infections and disease.
