The holistic approach aims to restore balance within the body, taking into account the person’s whole being and not just their physical symptoms. A variety of techniques may be used to relax muscles, increase oxygen in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Gentle pulling and stroking movements increase the circulation of the blood, stimulate the nerves and aid the removal of toxins by the lymphatic system, while kneading and pressure work can help to relieve pain and encourage an overall feeling of wellbeing and relaxation through the triggered release of endorphins, the body’s natural ‘feel-good’ chemicals.
Each treatment is adapted to individual needs and while holistic massage has a huge number of benefits to all the systems of the body, it can also be used to help provide relief for specific ailments including; stress and tension, insomnia, muscle pain and backache, migraines and headaches, poor circulation and depression.
