The ultimate goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being. Holistic massage is an ancient method of healing that clears the lymphatic system and releases toxins from the body as well as relieving mental and emotional stresses & tensions. We can encourage the body’s natural healing abilities to come forth & balance the entire body as a whole. Manipulations of the soft tissues produce therapeutic effects on the systems of the body. Holistic massage can be seen as a means of inducing relaxation & healing to improve the body’s functioning & elimination of waste products, speed up healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.
