Relaxation massage is beneficial for more than just reducing stress or reducing muscle tension.

Additionally, relaxation massage improves the health of skin tissue, allowing the skin to become more radiant, supple, and softer.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

In addition to all of the benefits of relaxation massage, remedial massage, mixed with deep tissue and acupressure as required, helps to improves muscle flexibility, range of motion, and assist injuries in healing quicker and stronger.

Benefits of Energy Healing with Massage

In addition to all of the benefits of relaxation massage, energy healing in the form of auric and magnetic therapy can increase feelings of well-being, reduce stress, trauma, anxiety, tension, depression, and fatigue.  It can improve sleep, increase relaxation, and help boost immunity to fight infections or hasten healing, improve metabolism and digestion. Chiefly, energy healing balances the Chakras, or energy centres, in your body and recharges your energy to help you maintain a healthy and balanced state from the cellular to the spiritual level.
