We somehow manage to find time to get our car serviced, house cleaned, the shopping, investing in the welfare of our kids (be it through sport, education or the arts) yet we deprive ourselves of deep comfort and great joy which impacts greatly on the health benefits of getting a massage. All the mental chatter depletes our energy.

Massage kick-starts the endorphins that make you feel-good; the feeling of well-being and deep relaxation after a massage help to reduce symptoms of depression. A good massage will improve circulation by moving blood through congested areas, by the same token, new oxygen rich blood flowing into damaged and congested areas assists with the healing process; it the aids lymph fluid to drain more effectively.
