Massage therapy is a touch therapy that is not only a wonderfully pleasurable and relaxing experience but also brings countless health benefits. A massage therapy treatment can relieve tension in the body, calm the mind and nourish the soul, bringing healing on a number of different levels simultaneously.
In general terms there are two main approaches in massage: those that are energy- based and those that are more concerned with muscular physiology, though the trend is towards increasing integration of massage therapy. Energy based approaches of massage therapy are influenced by ideas from the East, where it is widely believed that a universal life force runs through the body. In India, energy centres known as of life.
In the Far East, life and energy is believed to be channeled along meridians that run through the body, Energy based techniques such as shiatsu massage therapy use thumb or finger pressure at points along the meridians to help release blocked energy, enabling it to flow freely.
In the West, there is more of a tradition of muscular based massage therapy. This massage therapy approach is more concerned with physiology and focuses on the muscular skeletal system. It is generally a fairly firm style of massage therapy, and sports massage therapy has grown out of this tradition.
The fast paced, modern life combined with a sedentary lifestyle and an emphasis on mental activity, puts the whole body under great strain. Body massage therapy involves a flowing sequence of soothing and stimulating stokes combined to bring a harmonious style of relaxation and invigoration. Massaging much larger areas of the body can bring greater relief to body systems; and can be used to work on specific problems and stresses, as well as improving energy levels.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest therapies in the world, and to discover the precise origins is almost impossible. The use of touch for grooming, stoking and rubbing is a behaviour that we share with many animals. Touch is instinctive, and from here it is a small step to develop this natural ability into a healing art.
There is evidence that every culture throughout the world has used massage therapy in some form or other and every language, ancient or modern as a word for massage. In the East the tradition of massage therapy has always been unbroken, although it s a practice has been more staggered and erratic in western cultures.
Touch is a basic human instinct and it has the power to comfort and reassure on many levels. It can relax the body, calm the mind and encourage healing and well-being.
Tips for having massage therapy and for after care.
- Have a shower before attending your massage therapy appointment as this will prep your skin for your treatment.
- Don t tan or have a waxing session before your massage therapy as the oils or pressure may affect your skin.
- Remove any makeup before your massage therapy. You skin should be clean and fresh so that oils are able to soak in during the treatment.
- Remove jewelry before your massage therapy. Jewelry can snag or get in the way of the movement of the masseuse, and also oils can damage your precious pieces.
- Tell the therapists exactly what you are after from your massage therapy so that both you and your therapists can get the most out of your session.
- When you are done with your massage therapy, take your time getting off the table, as you body would have released a lot of toxins which can leave your feeling a little light headed.
- Drink lots of water when you are done, to help with flushing out the toxins from your body.
