Physical benefits

During massage therapy, the massage therapist works the tension out of stiff and sore muscles, encouraging their patient to relax. This may help the person receiving the massage on many levels: their muscles feel relaxed and are no longer sore, they are relaxed and no longer tense allowing a larger range of motion.

A study performed on university dance students demonstrated that the dancers had improved in range of motion, mood, balance, posture, and performed better.

Emotional

When receiving a massage hormones are released. This process can make you feel happier, calmer and have a clearer view on your lifestyle.

Physiological

The techniques used warm and stretch the muscles releasing toxins out of the muscle fibres removing tention and making the muscles more pliable. Stress and tension is often rubbed away with any aches or pains in the body.

Studies performed by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami indicated that the immune systems improved in children who were massaged daily by their parents; the children's white blood cell and neutrophil counts increased. Therapeutic massage is used as a treatment for many illnesses and during the recovery period after surgery.

Scientists believe that this deep, healing massage triggers the release of certain chemicals in the body that helps you combat illnesses and speeds recovery.
