Holistic massage is a deceptively simple but powerful form of healing, involving touch, movement, and energy. Qualities long associated with well-being and good health. It has been practiced in one form or another for thousands of years. Today it is recognized increasingly as a powerful aid to the body's own healing mechanisms, it has a profoundly calming effect on the neuromuscular system bringing about deep relaxation and restoring energy. It is used both as an adjunct to conventional medicine and as a therapeutic tool in its own right for maintaining the body's natural balances. You will immediately notice some of the effects of massage: this gentle therapy relaxes the body, releases muscle tension, and the rhythmical, soothing nature of the massage strokes helps your mind to unwind and become still, leaving you calm and refreshed.
