Benefits of Massage

posted in: newsletters 0

Have you been in for a massage yet?

I asked Georgia, one of our three highly experienced therapists, to give me a list of the benefits of getting a regular massage. This is what she came up with.

General wellbeing:

  • Stress reduction –  my personal favourite
  • Promotes relaxation – a close second
  • It re-connects you to your body, helps to keep you grounded.
  • Improves the quality of your sleep
  • Promotes deeper and easier breathing

Aches and Pains

  • Provides pain relief for an endless list of ailments and discomforts
  • Reduces muscle soreness (from exercise or a hard day at work)
  • Flushes out lactic acid (that’s the one that gives you the sore, tired, achy, burning and sometimes itchy feeling!)
  • Helps to warm up the muscles before a sporting event, thus preventing injuries and increasing performance levels

Healthy Ageing

  • Increases flexibility and range of movement
  • Improves the circulatory system and drainage of the lymphatic system
  • Assists in the management of hormonal imbalances such as menopause
  • Improves your posture


  • Enhances rehabilitation after an injury or surgery
  • Helps to break down scar tissue (from breast surgery, gastric banding, burns or any other scar tissue)


  • Strengthens the immune system – I did not know this. It’s been a pretty rough cold and flu season – maybe I should have been getting more massages!

More than all of this… it just feels good!
