After all the stresses of the festive season, now is the perfect time to spoil yourself or a loved one with a massage.
One of the oldest healing traditions, massage is not just a great way to relax, it has many health benefits as well.
G Massage at Village Fair Regents Park offers a variety of remedial massage treatments tailored to suit everyone’s needs.
From pregnancy massages, to sports injury, or a massage simply to help you relax and unwind, G Massage will have you floating on air.
G Massage manager Guoyang Tan said the business had an excellent reputation with lots of repeat customers.
She said massages for children were also available.
“After you have a massage, you have a feeling of deep relaxation and calm,” Ms Tan said.
It’s not just the ocean sounds and delicious smelling oils that immediately take you to a stress-free space, massages have been found to increase blood flow to areas of the brain associated with mood and stress regulation.
Studies have shown that after a massage treatment, people’s levels of the stress hormone cortisol dropped by 31 percent while happy hormones like serotonin and dopamine were boosted by 30 percent.
Not only can massage therapy help with stress relief, but regular massage sessions over a prolonged period of time can boost energy levels, reduce pain, and stimulate individuals on physical as well as emotional levels.
