Bodywork as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support.
Think of the last time you bumped your head or had a sore calf. What did you do? Rubbed it, right? The same was true of our earliest ancestors. Healers throughout time and throughout the world have instinctually and independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch.
Many are still in use today, and with good reason. We now have scientific proof of the benefits of bodywork - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles.
Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury. Bodywork not only feels good, but it can cure what ails you.
