Description

Massage is considered to be a Complementary Therapy. When massage therapy is applied with the right intent, skill and caring touch, it can bring about positive responses within the body, mind and spirit of an individual. When these three aspects of an individual are in harmony, the best conditions are in place to activate the human body’s own healing forces so that health and wellbeing prevails. Any therapy that seeks to promote this harmony is regarded as holistic. This holistic approach to health and wellbeing is the central philosophy upon which massage treatments and indeed all other complementary therapies are based.
