Why choose Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy helps in many ways, primarily it helps the body to release stress. When a person experiences a stress the body naturally releases hormones (Cortisol) which activate the bodies 'fight or flight response'. This hormone causes the blood to be diverted to the muscles and over repeated stresses the muscle become hypertonic. Massage brings the body back into balance by promoting good tissue health, decreasing the muscles reflex activity, and inhibiting motor neuron firing.
Massage therapy is an effective tool in treating any type of injury; sports, work related or motor vehicle accidents. It is also beneficial for treating many pathologies including arthritis, gastro-intestinal, COPD and neurological conditions.
As well as the treatment of injuries and pathologies, massage is also very effective in promoting relaxation and well-being.
