Mind and body are inseparable and our physical health is very important for our overall sense of wellbeing. Massage can bring both immediate relief and long term protection from many of the symptoms of stress. Reduction of these symptoms has been demonstrated to reduce overall stress levels and increase motivation and productivity. Treatment can involve Swedish massage, Deep tissue massage or Aromatherapy, depending on the employees’ needs and preferences. Deep tissue treatments work on the soft tissues of the body to help relieve muscular tension that can develop through stress. Various degrees of pressure
and stretching movements are applied to areas of muscular tension and spasm to help alleviate discomfort and promote healing. Swedish massage is a gentler technique and is used for pure relaxation although it too has the ability to aid a range of stress related conditions, such as headaches, insomnia and fatigue. Aromatherapy uses individually chosen and blended essential oils in combination with massage. It is a safe way to improve a variety of stress related conditions such as psoriasis, indigestion and migraine.
