We live a lifestyle where we encounter stress daily. Deadlines to meet, bills to pay and places to be, pollution, noise and chemicals cause havoc on our bodies. Our bodies tense up and we store tension which accumulates over time leading to more serious conditions. We hold physical and emotional blocks in these tensions, our bodies want to be free of these limitations and live in our optimum expression and fullest potential. Through, tensions, aches and pains our bodies are telling us “slow down, care for me, and take time”.
Close your eyes and surrender to the ancient practice and art of massage. Kings, queens, emperors, pharos and ordinary men and women found retreats in cities to receive the curative and de-stressing benefits of a massage. Spas acted as retreat centres for healing, tranquility and transformation. Incorporating techniques and natural elements like steam, herbs, crystals and stones, humans found ways to stimulate the senses and calm the mind in these centres for healing.
