Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. Many cultures – including the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Indians were convinced of the therapeutic properties of massage and used it to treat a variety of ailments.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body and is packed with nerve endings. Massage works by soothing soft tissue and encouraging relaxation. Massage is especially effective in treating ‘vicious cycle’ complaints. For instance, a tension headache is often self-sustaining because the pain makes the sufferer clench the affected muscles even harder, creating more pain. A thorough neck and shoulder massage can release muscle tension and break the pain cycle.
Modern studies show that massage can successfully treat a range of disorders, including:
- Back pain
- High blood pressure.
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain
