Massage is one of the oldest healing traditions, used by many ancient cultures due to its therapeutic properties in treating a variety of ailments. Massage involves using pressure and movements in relaxing and therapeutic measures, on your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and skin, in order to improve health and wellbeing.
Providing a reduction in the level of stress hormones and stimulating the release of endorphins, massage promotes feelings of wellbeing, deep relaxation and calm. Massage can complement treatment plans for stress, anxiety and depression.
Health benefits experienced with massage may include improved circulation, reduced muscle tension, stimulation of the lymph system, increased joint mobility and flexibility, improved recovery of soft tissue injuries, and improved skin tone.
Kissun Clinics in the Whitsundays offer deep tissue/therapeutic massage (also known as ‘Western’ or ‘Swedish’ massage) and hot stone massage.
