What is massage therapy?

Dating back to at least 4000 years, the touch therapy aims at relaxing the body and the mind, undoing muscular tensions and relieving pains of various origins. In time, the techniques have evolved and have become more refined. However, the cornerstone of massage therapy remained the same; improving the physical and mental state of the patient by massaging the muscles, tendons and ligaments.

The benefits of massage therapy

There are massages focussed on relaxation, and others with a purely therapeutic purpose. In both cases, the benefits are many. As a matter of fact, integrating massage therapy in your life can prevent numerous physical and emotional problems, and improve your quality of sleep. Massages help maintaining a better posture, relax the muscles and reduce stress. They also improve muscle and articulation mobility, blood and lymphatic flow, digestion and the immune system’s functioning. On the mental side, massage therapy plays a beneficial role in stress reduction, self-esteem, awakening the senses and being aware of one’s body and emotions.

Relaxation care

Relaxation massages are designed to free you from the effects of stress and appease you physically and mentally.

By manipulating the tissues, this type of care works on the nervous system to invigorate you, give you more energy and activate blood flow.

Therapeutic care

The purpose of therapeutic massages is to treat or cure various ailments. Among other things, they help relieve certain muscular pains stemming from an injury or ongoing stress. They can also prevent the onset of muscle or joint problems if they are done regularly. It is normal to feel sore the day after the treatment, and this sensation will quickly go away leaving you in a state of well-being.
