Course Description

Introduction to body massage.

What is body massage?

An all over body massage is a physical manipulation of the muscles, skin and joints specifically the muscles. The manipulation of the muscles through the surface of the skin is to release physical tension, stress and even remove emotional tension as a natural side-effect or by-product of the physical massage.

Other benefits are improved circulation. It has been said that toxic waste or toxins will be better removed from the bloodstream and out of the body as a result of the all over body massage.

By manipulating and massaging the muscles you will immediately feel an instant removal of physical tension and or mental tension including stress and fatigue.

The massage of muscles through the skin can also improve the appearance of your muscles better known as muscle tone and enhancements to ligaments and tendons and also soft tissue.

Receiving a full all over body massage with a duration of approximately 20 minutes can lead to what is commonly known as an abreaction or the releasing of emotion especially if the masseur is trained in the use of certain words directed to the releasing of mental and emotional pain.

Many people do report that the experience is a beautiful one not only does it release physical tension and pressure points but releases a considerable amount of mental and emotional tension that you don’t know is there until it actually released. The benefits of having a massage are absolutely understated.

Overall benefits of massage.

Profound relaxation, the reduction and or elimination of tension, removal of stiffness, aches and pain (each person differs there), has a wonderful effect on our breathing and makes it deeper more rhythmic, elevates our personal sense of well-being and can leave us feeling as though we are walking on air.

All these words used to describe the overall benefits of massage are fairly accurate and there is no exaggeration in the use of these words therefore it is recommended that you personally experience a full body massage or body massage therapy to confirm or agree.
