Massage can produce a range of real physical and psychological benefits. These can enhance flexibility and athletic performance in a healthy body, or can help a body that is out of balance or struggling with serious illness. Recent medical research strongly suggests that massage decreases suffering in illness, reducing tension and anxiety and promoting well-being, relaxation, and contentment.
Beauty is truer and deeper than we normally allow and it arises from health in mind and body. By stimulating the circulation, nourishing the skin, relaxing the muscles and calming the mind, massage and the use of essential oils helps you to achieve glowing skin, shining eyes, a relaxed body, and an optimistic spirit. Massage can therefore be a truly comprehensive beauty treatment that keeps you looking young and feeling beautiful.
