Massage > Massage Overview

Imagine; a relaxed far off dreamy feeling, languor. That delicious sense of relaxation and well being achieved without drugs or alcohol. A dimensional space where there is nothing to do other than simply be... and enjoy the pleasure of your own body.

Massage is perhaps the oldest of the healing arts,
it is instinctive, because it it hurts, you rub it,
and massage is this instinct developed.

In Western society, human touch is becoming more difficult, and yet it is proven that children brought up deprived of loving touch develop more mental, emotional; and physical problems than those who receive adequate touch and nurturing. Trials with people of all ages indicate that massage benefits everyone.

Although touch is so formalised in our society, massage is very important as it represents ways to break down barriers that divide us from ourselves and each other.

Lovers are often unsure of how to touch other than at the most basic, instinctive level. This is not fun, however when the sexual passion falls away and you feel self-conscious about touching your partner.. learning about massage can help to overcome some of these fears. Massage creates an atmosphere in which you can follow your inclinations with your partner.

There is no denying that massage fulfils a deep human need; and it is probably the oldest form of therapy in the world. It evolved from natural and perhaps even instinctive behaviour, as a means of easing hurts and stiffness and helping a tired or tense body to recuperate.

Massage is communication. Anthropologists estimate that anything up to ninety per cent of everyday human communication is non-verbal, though obviously this figure will vary widely. For example body language, facial expression, tone of voice, the distance you may stand apart from someone, the brightness in your eyes and even the level of pheromones, among a dozen other non-verbal signals. If we think that we are communicating through touch, or if we feel that we are, then we are doing so. Touch conveys 'I am here, I am with you', the most basic reassurance that human beings can give to one another.

Viewed scientifically, massage works by relaxing and refreshing tired or knotted muscles; by stimulating the nerve endings in the superficial layers of the skin; by increasing the blood circulation in the capillaries; by improving deep circulation, both of the blood and of lymph; and by stimulating the production of endorphins, which are the brain's own natural opiates.

Massage can also be reassuring, building self-confidence. This may be a side-effect of the endorphins, but equally, it may well be the result of interacting with another person, the masseur or masseuse, and of receiving their undivided attention. This is a powerful affirmation of self-worth.

Massage has been proven to be an effective form of treatment for many common diseases. Conditions like arthritis, repetitive strain injury, sports injuries, emotional disorders and can help even with septic conditions.
