Massage has been used for thousands of years for many conditions as a therapeutic therapy inducing a feeling of deep relaxation and a general sense of wellbeing. The skin is our largest organ, containing fluid, blood, blood vessels, connective tissue, muscle and rich in nerve supplies.

Massage received regularly may help prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.

Massage can help resolve old injuries: Some injuries heal on their own, but many require treatment to return proper functioning of the muscle groups. Over time, old injuries can lead to imbalances in your body causing further problems as you overuse other muscles.

Please note: there are two types of techniques such as cupping and gua sha where discolouration may occur during and after the treatment. This will only occur when the body and skin is unhealthy and stagnation is present and clearance has occurred.

Massage is not new, different applications have been developed over the years, but the technique itself has been used for centuries, due to the power of touch and the known benefits of the application. Periodic massage can keep your body in better condition: The more relaxed your muscles are, the better flexibility and strength you will have. Maintaining proper muscle tone is important in preventing injury.
