Massage is good for your body, mind and spirit!
Did you know that injury, damage or inflammation can change the way we use our muscles and ligaments altering the position and correct function of our limbs.
For example damage to an ankle or knee can affect the way we walk because of pain that is experienced through the formation of adhesions, damaged muscle tissues and bruising: this in turn can cause dysfunctional movement of the pelvis, sacrum and spine which can then cause imbalance in the shoulder and neck area
Massage, Muscle and Ligament Manipulation Therapies are performed to address the above, assisting in restoring balance and helping with pain reduction with the intention of restoring balance to muscles, ligaments and joints.

Massage can prevent the formation of adhesions, can separate facial fibres, help reduce inflammation, assist with swelling in the joints and help with recovery from soft tissue and muscle injuries
Massage improves circulation which increases blood flow and oxygen supply to the muscles contributing to efficient working and repair by the body, alleviating muscle spasm and nerve irritation
A massage treatment releases endorphins (neurotransmitters) which are brain chemicals that produce feelings of well being and calm
Massage also stimulates the lymphatic system which relies on free movement of muscle and is essential for removal of toxins, waste and other metabolic by-products which contribute to good health and a feeling of well being
After a period of physical exertion, training or exercise, a post event massage can be an excellent way to recover and alleviate delayed onset muscle soreness.
