What Do I Do

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest and largest systems of natural therapy. There have been references to Massage Therapy in Chinese literature dating back at least 3,000 years ago, before the Christian era.

The Swedish Physician Ling (1776-1839) established the first scientific system of Massage, based on the principals of Anatomy and Physiology. Thus, today the science of Massage rests upon a solid, well established, and recognized foundation. Massage Therapy is a natural approach to healing, and it affects ALL systems of the body: musculo-skeletal, integumentary, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, and nervous systems. *

What Do I Do

Remedial Massage

For thousands of years massage has been used for its therapeutic and healing effects on the body. While it has not always been understood why massage worked, the positive results were recognised and appreciated. From the relief of muscular and skeletal * pain to the treatment of a wide range of conditions and ailments, massage has proved itself an effective tool for medicinal healing and general body maintenance.

Modern advances in science and medicine have brought with them a better understanding of how and why massage works. A better understanding of the biomechanics of the body has also brought important advances in massage itself. This increased knowledge has allowed for the refinement of existing techniques and has allowed development of new approaches.

Today, massage has again entered the medical mainstream and is seen by many as an important adjunct to qualified medical treatment.
