Massage is a therapeutic practice that has been around since longer than most forms of therapy. The first written records date back to more than 2000 year BCE and appears in ancient cultures like Egypt, China and India. The forms, techniques, and methods vary from one cultured to the other and evolved differently in different parts of the world, but it is still considered as essential part of holistic medicine such as Ayurveda.
Massage is not only a way to efficiently relieve tension, pain and muscle aches, it has many less known benefits, such as stress reduction, by increasing the release of endorphins (feel-good hormone) and reducing levels of cortisol (stress hormone), it also increases the production of serotonin and dopamine, which can help fight symptoms of depression, it calms the nervous system and therefore can help with sleeping issues, and finally, human touch is essential and helps procure a feeling of security, connection and well-beeing.
'Since a couple of years, I work in my own studio in a partnership with my best friend who is a beautician - Best of You.
I offer there all types of wellness massages, from the classic to the traditional Thai massage, hot stone, lomi lomi, Ayurvedic, but also sport massage and many others.
I try to focus on every person's needs, be it relieving headaches from shoulder tensions, or helping build down stress and anxiety.
I try to offer a moment of calm and retreat, in a warm and quiet atmosphere, so that one can feel regenerated when stepping outside in our fast and demanding world again.'
