Massage therapy is one of the oldest and simplest forms of medical care and natural healing practice. Historically, massage was considered as an art form.
Holistic Therapeutic Massage
Holistic therapeutic massage treats the whole person which includes body, emotions and mind. Such an all-encompassing approach offers many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. There is more to the holistic therapeutic massage than simply performing a routine of mechanical movements on the body. It seeks out the cause of distress -, whether internal or external - rather than merely treating the symptoms and its aim is to rebalance the body’s inner energy balance.
Holistic therapeutic massage marries the traditional techniques of east and west. It incorporates a mix of massage techniques that balance and meet the needs of every individual.
The entire body needs to be examined so that the interrelated areas of tension are unlocked and the effects of the massage are more encompassing and longer lasting. Any massage first eliminates the tension that lies in the muscles when they are not being used, but holistic massage also finds and removes blockages in the energy channels within the body using energy healing techniques. The main goal of energy healing is to restore harmony, energy and balance within the human energy system through touch. Regular therapeutic massage sessions are recommended to improve health and enhance the quality of life.
