Knead to Relax: Benefits of Massage

Massage is not just a sensory treat for your body; it has also been proven to reduce stress and anxiety. Whether you’re craving a gentle touch or something stronger like deep tissue massage, massage is a treat that your body will seriously thank you for!

Massage is one of the most popular spa treatments because they offer so many benefits. When you want to get away from it all, having a skilled massage therapist use the right pressure to relax and restore your muscles is a treat you just can’t get anywhere else.

Know Before You Go

Not all massage treatments are the same, so consider what technique you’re looking for before you book. Whether you’re going to unwind or want to work out the kinks, make sure you find the right massage for you. Often treatments can be customised to address any specific concerns you may have.

Regardless of the type of massage you choose, a few rules always apply: don't eat for at least one hour before your treatment, and drink plenty of water when you’re done. There’s no need to be nervous about having a massage, therapists will respect your privacy when changing. Also, be sure to speak to your massage therapist about what level of pressure feels good and what doesn’t – remember that this experience is all about you!
