Who doesn’t like a massage? You spend one hour being pampered and you leave feeling extremely relaxed. They’re great. But did you know they also offer a range of health benefits?

It’s not uncommon to experience feelings of stress and pressure, especially in today’s fast-paced society, however too much stress can have negative long term effects on your physical and mental well-being. Massages offer an enjoyable way to address feelings of tension and stress. A quiet, relaxing environment is created to help you feel at ease and the movements of the massage are designed to relax your muscles and work out any tensions you may have. It will also encourage you to focus your mind away from stressful things and instead focus on yourself and how you feel. The massage will boost those feel-good hormone levels, and after an hour you’ll feel a lot better.

Many of us now lead highly sedentary lifestyles, and most would be surprised (and probably horrified) at how much of the day is spent hunched up or slouched in front of a screen. Humans are meant to be active, and continuous hours spent in these positions is going to cause problems with posture and also aches and pains. Regular massages can counteract this. They work out areas of tension, particularly around the shoulders, neck and lower back, so the effects of being sat all day aren’t so tough on your body.

Arrange a regular massage and your skin will love you for it. The motions of a massage promote circulation and also helps to remove dead skin cells to leave your skin glowing and looking more radiant. If a good massage oil is used, it will also make your skin feel moisturised and hydrated.

If you feel like you could benefit from a massage, why not book one with one of our professional masseurs? You’ll enjoy an extremely relaxing massage and you’ll also receive complimentary use of our sauna, spa and steam room facilities.
