What is Massage?
Massage is officially known as the manipulation of the body's soft tissues to correct areas of tension. But the basis of massage is touch ‐ and there is increasing medical evidence of its significant value. It goes so far as to suggest that friendliness, combined with warmth, sympathy and touch, can have a powerful effect on general health.
Massage is used to heal, invigorate the mind and relax the body. It reaches all the major body organs as well as helping the muscles and soft tissues stay healthy.
How Does It Feel?
Depending on the clients needs, the massage can be of medium pressure to very deep pressure. The massage therapist will be guided by you, the client. The physical feel of the massage will be warming and relaxing, sometimes there may be some ‘feel good pain’, but should never be intolerable pain.
Who Can Have a Massage?
Anyone can have massage, from a very young baby to an elderly client ‐ as long as the therapist is experienced and is mindful of the client’s situation and adjusts the pressure and length of massage accordingly. Embrace Life also provides pregnancy massage.
