The Healing Power of Touch

Touch can have huge health benefits…

…by providing the comfort, warmth and reassurance of touch – stimulating the body’s own natural healing abilities to restore you from within, it has been shown to alleviate anxiety, stress and depression, improve immune function, reduce pain, enhance attentiveness, decrease blood pressure and calm the heart rate.

The healing effects of massage.

The skin is the largest organ in our body and is designed, amongst other things, to experience touch. As our brains and bodies have developed extensive and complicated responses to being touched, massage has a profound impact. When we receive touch a signal is sent to our brain, which then triggers the release of oxytocin – commonly known as the love drug – as well as the two other happy hormones, Serotonin and Dopamine.

Massage Therapy goes even further. Along with boosting the happy hormones, it has been proven to lower the hormone cortisol – a key component in our stress response. And while this is essential for quick reactions in emergencies when present long-term, even in lower quantities, it’s harmful for the overall health of the body.

Holistic Massage

Holistic massage is an ancient method that treats the body as a “whole” which means that not only will a massage treatment pamper your physical body but it will also establish internal and external problems and provide an effective method of rebalancing. Holistic massage aids in clearing the lymphatic drainage system and releases toxins from the body. By recognising that illness and stress affects not only our physical but also our emotional, spiritual and mental well-being, holistic massage allows the body’s natural healing abilities to come forth and balance the entire body as a whole.

Holistic massage not only benefits the mind, body and spirit. It can lead to better circulation, less physical tension and deeper breathing, which oxygenates the entire body. Holistic Massage can create instant improvement in the quality of sleep and concentration. There are so many emotional and mental benefits from holistic massage.

Hot | Stone Massage.

Hot stone massage is an ancient practice traced back to over 2,000 years, when the Chinese used heated stones as a means of improving the function of internal organs and involves the use of flat, heated stones made from Basalt a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. The stones are placed onto the body at key acupressure points. These acupressure points control your body’s energy flow and when recharged can help to rebalance the body and soul.

The warming sensation of being massaged with hot stones is incredibly relaxing and soothing aiding with the re-balancing of the mind, body and spirit. Hot stone massage helps alleviate Stress, anxiety and depression. Physically the heat retained in the basalt stones can help improve blood circulation. So if you’re feeling stressed, tired or run down in some cases this can cause the muscles to feel tight and tense more than usual and with the hot stones increasing circulation, this delivers more oxygen to the muscles helping to ease the aches and tension.

Cold | Stone Massage.

The massage stones used in Cold Stone massage are metamorphosed limestone that are white in colour and formed beneath the seabed. Physically, it’s thought that another of the benefits of cold stone massage using marble improves the processing of calcium in the body, stimulates the metabolism, fortifies immunity, and encourages the healing of tissue and bone.

When cold stones are placed on the skin, it initially causes narrowing of the blood vessels (vasoconstriction). Which in turn stimulates the nervous system. Prostaglandin, the body’s natural pain relief, is released when applying cold treatments. When they are removed, the blood vessels dilate (vasodilation), bringing fresh blood and oxygen to the area, which increases circulation. Cold stone massage reduces inflammation and swelling, easing muscular injury and reinvigorating the body. Marble, which stays cool and draws heat out of the body, is the best stone for cold therapies. Apart from all of the physiological benefits The Cold Stones used in Massage help the mind to focus on the body and what it is experiencing rather than the mental stresses and issues of life. Helping to rebalance the mind, body and spirit.

Indian Head Massage.

Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic seated massage treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to rebalance your body’s energies. This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre.

It’s an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practised in India for thousands of years. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, this massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders and was originally used to improve scalp and hair conditions. It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.

It doesn’t seem sufficient to say that an Indian head massage will relax you. It can make you feel an increased feeling of awareness and a sense of calm, peace and tranquillity due to the rebalancing of the Chakras but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain-fog and stress. This massage treatment offers all kinds of benefits. It may relieve aches, pains and tension in your neck, back and shoulders, improve the texture of your hair and encourage it to grow.

An Indian head massage stimulates the flow of blood, lymph and oxygen in your upper body, and therefore may clear your sinuses, relieve stress and help you sleep better. And because it is said to help cure headaches (even migraines), eye strain and anxiety, some say an Indian head massage can help you to concentrate better at work.

Indian head massage is kind to hair; it is not kind to hair-dos. So do bear in mind that as you will have oils rubbed into your scalp that you might want to bring a hat or hairband with you to make yourself look respectable on your way home, or back to work.
