Over the festive season we indulge in food and alcohol, travel the country, exercise less and stress over buying that perfect gift, all factors which can have direct effects on our body. After speaking to clients who have enjoyed facials at No.6 for years, Samantha added relaxing treatments to the menu so that clients can renew and restore their mind, body and spirit as well as their skin, all under our one roof!
Massage isn’t just a luxurious treat to pamper yourself but there are many reasons to get one regularly. The treatment can be a part of a pro-active plan of preventative medicine much in the same way as exercise and healthy eating.
A massage can kick-start your body’s own natural cleansing processes, which slows down for a variety of reasons but a detoxifying massage can help set things right again. The rhythmic strokes and pressure applied to muscles, tissues and organs during massage therapy help stimulate the circulatory system. Massage also encourages the lymphatic fluid system to work with your cardiovascular circulatory system to flush out toxins and carry immune cells throughout the body to help defend against infections. If your lymph fluid circulation gets sluggish, toxins can accumulate and immune cells may not get carried to the areas of the body where they’re needed.
Massage activates the parasympathetic nervous system, by counteracting your body’s negative response to stress, relaxing muscle tension and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation to return to normal.
Our experienced therapists tailor make each treatment to address your concerns, target pressure points and soothe your body. A blissful detox! What more could you ask for after a busy few weeks.
*Remember to drink a glass of water after massage to help the body flush out toxins more rapidly.
