BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of well-being.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage can include:
reduced muscle tension
stimulation of the lymphatic system
reduction of stress hormones
release myofascial adhesions
increased joint mobility and flexibility
improved skin tone
speedier healing of soft tissue injuries
heightened mental alertness
reduced anxiety and depression
"Regular massage can support the maintenance and recovery of healthy tissues, aid in relaxation and through ongoing maintenance can offer the body a marker and moment of true care, self-care and a reflection to appreciate, concerning health and care of the body as a whole."
Andrew Mooney and Samantha Davidson, North Cornwall Physiotherapy.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Over two years ago I was having great difficulty sleeping in comfort – being forced to sleep only on my back.
After only one massage from Kevin Fitzgerald, my quality of sleep improved dramatically allowing me to sleep normally without pain.
Since this initial visit, I have been massaged every two weeks and as a consequence the stiffness of my muscles has completely disappeared, and my muscle tissue has regained its form and resilience. I would not be without regular therapeutic massage."
