The benefits of Massage



Why is Massage so good for you?


If you need some evidence why they make you feel so good, please read below. Massage is one of the oldest and easiest ways of medical treatment to ease pain and anxiety and has multiple health benefits. It is advised to add them regularly into your routine as they are an important part in a healthy lifestyle.


1.They feel great and make you feel good. This is due to the fact that massage has an impact on the nervous system and the nerve endings in our skin which stimulate our Endorphin Production. Endorphins are hormones that make us ‘feel good and happy’.


2.They reduces Stress, Anxiety, Depression and help with insomnia. Massage helps lower cortisol levels and activates Serotonin and Dopamine; all indicators that lower the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Massage also activates the activity and function of the left lobe and decreases the activity in the right lobe. It is known that the left side of the frontal lobe of our brain is more active when we are happy and the right side is more active when we are sad. This is due to the effect that more Endorphins are produced. Stress gets another beating as they reduce the levels of stress chemicals and reverse the damaging effects of stress by slowing heart rate, respiration and reducing elevated blood pressure. Massage is proven to be an effective therapy for stress-related tension of which scientists believe is responsible for more than 80% of diseases.

Why is it so important to choose a certified trained therapist?



I cannot tell you how many people have walked through the clinic door, with inflamed injuries, or more pain , no relief after attending an unqualified therapist for one of those 15 minute job….


Choosing a massage therapist, why is it IMPORTANT that they are a Certified Trained Therapist?


When you think of massage what comes to mind?


Is it that you are coming for a specific problem, like frozen shoulder, lower back pain?


Is it to ease tight muscles from recreational sports, maybe you are a runner or regular Gym enthusiast and your body needs to feel the fine hands of a great therapist?

Is it, that your body is so tense and anxious that every muscle is screaming out for relief?


Or are those recent Winter Melbourne mornings, stirring up more than you like them too, and you are feeling your joints stiffen up, and your body is just not circulating that blood flow effectively?

So why is it so IMPORTANT to ensure we are putting our most prized possession we own, yes it is our BODIES for without them, we cannot have the freedom of functioning as effectively in life, so it is very IMPORTANT we leave it in the hands of an expert a trained massage therapist?


A massage should leave you walking out better, than how you walked in.


When you book a massage with a qualified practitioner a Remedial Massage Therapist. It is comforting to know that they have trained professionally. It is so vital for the masseuse to be qualified so that they will not further aggravate any injury that you may have.


When you have a massage with our trained Remedial massage therapist, they will always ask their clients what they are looking for in regards to relief from an injury, or is it relaxation, or is relief from anxiety, they want to know the specifics, to ensure that you are obtaining the best therapy for your body.

We all want to feel comfortable and relaxed, after all we are very vulnerable on that table, we are leaving it in the hands of the expert. A trained remedial therapist knows the importance of establishing a trusting exchange. They will make you feel at ease, and their focus is to help you with the specific problem that you have come to them for.


BUT how many times should you massage?

One session?


Well one session will help, but committing on a regular ongoing basis, to obtain treatment of the affected area of the pain or discomfort will benefit immensely.


It is NOT uncommon for clients to come in only when the pain is so severe that they make an emergency appointment.

However regular visits will help your body heal itself better, and keep you from having that severe unmanaged pain. Massage helps keep your soft tissues feeling and functioning the way they should.

Massage helps your body relieve and deal with stress, and it is fair to say stress at times can be the underlying cause of the many problems we may have with regards to the aches and pains of our body.


Results will happen if you commit to servicing your body and getting a regular treatment of massage.
