Massage can be used as a stand alone practice or combined with other modalities to increase its potency. It is increasingly offered as part of a recovery and rehabilitation program to help people cope with illnesses like cancer, heart disease or chronic pain, highlighting its growing acceptance by the broader health and medical community.
Massage therapy can assist in reducing stress and anxiety as well as reducing pain and increasing muscle mobility. Even if you are not suffering from any chronic or acute conditions or pain, massage can be an enjoyable and deeply relaxing experience. Massage therapy can help reduce cortisol levels (a stress inducing hormone), and increase other hormones that have a positive effect on wellbeing (including dopamine and serotonin). We recommend combining massage with floatation therapy to experience deep relaxation, recovery and rejuvenation for your mind, body & energy.
