All this but unfortunately it doesn’t come with the Dannoz steak knives set nor a buy one get one free offer ...... sorry!

Massage adopted weekly (you and I both wish), or just twice a month, offers pleasurable benefit. It helps flush out waste gasses and toxins thus helping yourself from most common symptoms such as eczema, blisters, neurasthenia, headaches, insomnia, arthritis, male impotence and menstrual disorder.

Massage strengthens the skin, provides resistance against disharmony, resistance to injuries and power to recover quickly (especially sports men and women). It improves colour and texture of the skin and massage also helps to 'remove' old age, fatigue, and increases longevity.

Physical benefits

A sound circulatory system is vital for the healthy functioning of the whole body. Massage causes breathing to deepen and the blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, which boosts the circulation and helps oxygenate the blood. Improved circulation also means that vital nutrients are carried around the body more effectively, while temporarily reducing blood pressure and pulse rate and so relaxing and calming the body and mind.

Massage stimulates the functioning of the skin's sebaceous and sweat glands that work together to moisturise, clean and cool it. Massage also has an exfoliating action, helping to eliminate dead skin cells and thus resulting in a fresher appearance to the skin. Boosting the circulation improves the supply of necessary nutrients needed for healthy hair, nails and skin, and can also help relieve a range of problems including headaches and digestive disorders.

Massage also has a direct benefit on the body's muscular structure. By relaxing and stretching muscles that have become contracted and shortened with tension, massage helps the body to regain its flexibility as the elasticity and mobility of the body tissues is restored. These actions can help to ease painful muscles and improve posture by helping to bring the body's musculature back into a more balanced position. It can also help to restore muscles that have become weak and flaccid through under use. The physical action of massage also works directly on the lymphatic system, helping the body eliminate lactic acid and other chemical wastes that contribute to pain and discomfort in the joints and muscles. Many lymphatic nodes are situated in the neck, back of the head, face and jaw.

As a massage treatment progresses and the body relaxes more deeply, there is a gradual switching over in body functioning towards the parasympathetic nervous system. This system operates outside of our conscious control and is related to the hidden work of general maintenance and repair, and essential functions such as digestion and elimination. We are often in so much of a rush that we don't give our bodies enough time for this important work.

Massage is a good way of giving the body a 'pit stop', where it can attend to its inner workings.

Mind and emotions

An extensive body of research supports the therapeutic claims of massage, with growing evidence that it can contribute to the relief of conditions such as stress, depression and anxiety. Head massage in particular has a significant impact on a mental level. The physical release of muscular tension and the increased blood supply to the head results in improved mental functioning and a greater sense of clarity. There is a reduction in mental exhaustion, feelings of irritability or being overwhelmed and a corresponding increase in alertness, mental agility, concentration and insightfulness.

Massage is also valued for its "feel good" factor. As the body releases tension, a weight is lifted, leading to an increased sense of lightness and happiness. These emotional shifts correspond to the hormonal changes that occur in the body during a massage treatment. Research indicates that the level of stress hormones such as cortisol falls during massage, while the level of feel-good bonding hormones, such as oxytocin, significantly increases. Stress hormones have a weakening effect on the immune system.

Nourishing the soul

Massage can also work on the energetic balance of the body through the chakra system, which centres around its spiritual dimension. By aligning body and soul through massage, a deep sense of peace, calm and balance can be achieved. The sense of lightness that people often feel after a treatment can also bring an increased awareness of their sp9iritual identity or inner light. After a massage, people often feel more at one with themselves. Some people report an improved perspective on life, the return of their sense of humour, or say that they are simply more relaxed and comfortable within their own bodies.
