Massage has been a form of treatment around for thousands of years, in fact the word massage comes from the Arabic word meaning “to press softly”. Swedish Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure, removing tension from the whole body. Target tissues may include muscle, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, connective tissue as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Our massage approach involves the receiver lying on a massage table, fully clothed or partly unclothed depending on the receiver’s choice. As appropriate, we cover parts of the body with towels.
Here at Medi Spa Sheffield, allow our therapist to give you a Swedish massage that will relieve all aches & pains, take time out and unwind in a beautiful environment.
Explanation and Application
The key benefit of touch through massage is in its effect of enabling the body to enter into a relaxed and balanced state. The moment we place our hands on another persons body we begin to treat both body and mind of a person and thus promote a state of balance called “homeostasis”.
Benefits of massage includes:
• Improvement and maintenance of muscle tone
• Stimulates and improves blood and lymph flow
• Improves skin texture and colour
• Stimulates cell regeneration
• Eliminates toxins e.g lactic acid from the body
• Stimulates the nervous system by clearing the nervous pathways within the body
• Produces Erythema thus increasing skin temperature
Consultation and Requirements
We ask you to allow at least 15 -20 minutes before your first treatment so that we can get to know you and complete a consultation form. We will develop a treatment plan that is specific to you and is aimed at delivering the benefits to specific areas that may be of physical concern. Rest assured that this form is confidential to you. This time is valuable in order to help you to get to know your therapist and to ensure that you understand how the treatment works. “Psychologically, massage could be considered to be the ultimate in pampering as it restores the energy levels of the body and promotes complete relaxation.”
