A body massage involves the manipulation of soft tissues in the body to relieve pain and ease muscle tension, bringing about the speeding up of blood circulation in the process.
The person being treated will lie down on a massage table or bed, usually without clothes, but draped with towels so that the body remains warm. As massage generates heat, most masseurs will recommend a hot water bath or shower half an hour after getting a massage done. One should also take a head bath with lukewarm water after a massage session. Set aside an hour for this and you’ll enjoy the truly relaxing experience a full body can bring you.
Body massage benefits have been known to relieve stress and improve the overall well-being of the body. It is a great way to release tight and stressed muscles, nerves and joints in the body. In addition, for a muscle injury case, a full body massage can also help in the healing process and improving the function of the immune system. There are also claims that many common ailments including stress, pain, digestive problems, headaches and insomnia could be treated through a good body massage by a qualified masseur.
