Massage can be traced back to China in 3,000 BC.  Holistic massage uses a range of movements that soothe and relax muscles of the whole body. It treats a wide range of muscular and skeletal-related conditions, and on a deeper level it encourages better circulation, lymph drainage and removal of cellular waste. It can help with digestive complaints, fatigue, insomnia, low immunity and many more conditions. 

Holistic - also known as Swedish - Massage involves the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (i.e. the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments) using the hands in a gentle, flowing
massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It is
most commonly used for relaxation, improving well-being and lymphatic drainage.

I use firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits such as reduced anxiety.  Holistic Massage promotes a sense of relaxation and well being,  improving blood circulation and delivering oxygen and nutrients to the cells.  It can also help prevent and relieve muscle cramps and spasms, and with pain management in conditions such as arthritis and sciatica.
