Full Body Massage

www.massage2book.com

A full body massage as the name implies, is a massage therapy that involves massaging the whole body from head to toe. It involves stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body and helps to relieve pain while simultaneously stimulating and toning the whole body. It helps to relax the body and relieve stress, leaving one feeling mentally and physically relaxed.

The massage therapy works by stimulating the skin and the muscles beneath the surface, helping to promote blood circulation and rid the muscles of accumulated toxins. The deepest layers of the muscles also benefit as well as the organs beneath them. A full body massage also helps to stimulate and strengthen the lymphatic system. While all the parts of the body benefit by from this massage, it is the back, shoulders and neck on which the maximum effort is spent. This is because these muscles tend to be the ones most affected by the stresses of everyday living. Bad posture, stress and unhealthy lifestyles all leave their mark on these muscles, resulting in knotted shoulder and neck muscles and back and shoulder pain.
