how good would a massage be on a day like this?
It is the foundation of several types of massage including deep tissue. This massage uses firm and slow long strokes in the direction of the blood flow towards the heart. I use techniques such as tapping, frictions, kneading and vibration which help to loosen up and relax the muscles.
It's designed to stimulate circulation and the lymphatic system, release tight muscles, restore your range of motion and relieve pain.
Swedish massage will calm your nervous system and promote a sense of relaxation and wellbeing, reducing anxiety and tension in the body.
“"WISDOM IS TO THE MIND WHAT HEALTH IS TO THE BODY"
— Francois de la Rouchefoucauld
touch and massage stimulates the release of endorphins, the body natural's painkillers.
This massage is a variation to the Swedish massage and focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims at releasing chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscle, tendons and fascia.
Deep tissue massage is a particularly effective massage for people with muscular pain.
