Wintergreen- The Power of Massage.
Massage has been used for centuries to enhance health and wellbeing. It offers a drug-free, non-invasive approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself in the following ways:
Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs
- Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body’s natural defence system
- Increased circulation of blood and lymph improves the condition of the skin
- Relaxes and softens injured and overexerted muscles
- Increases joint flexibility
- Reduces recovery time
- Helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pain
- Releases endorphins – the body’s natural defence system
- Reduces post-surgery adhesions and oedema and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue once healing has occurred
- Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients suffering from lower back pain
- Relieves pain for migraine sufferers
- Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion
