HISTORY OF MASSAGE
Massage dates back to thousands of years with ancient cultures such as the Chinese, Egyptians and Indians believing in its medicinal benefits. In the early 1800’s the Swedish doctor Per Henril Ling developed a method of movement which became known as the “Swedish Movement System”. Today Swedish massage is the most common form of massage practised in the Western world.
BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

• Deep relaxation•
• A feeling of wellbeing
• Improved skin tone•
• Moisturisation of dry and very dry skin
• Relief from tension headaches normally caused by stress
• Relief from general aches, pains and strains
MASSAGE IMPROVES LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
If you are suffering from a diminished immune system you may particularily benefit from a massage.
The lymphatic system is an important part of the immune system which comprises a large network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph directionally towards the heart.
Massage can assist the flow of lymph through the body, thereby assisting the immune system to prevent disease. Can also aid in reducing oedema (swelling).
