Massage therapy advocates a holistic approach where the physical, psychological and cultural experience of the individual is taken into account. Its objective is to relieve and treat the discomforts that can affect the body. This type of massage is suitable for everyone, from the youngest children to seniors.

Relaxation massage promotes the general balance of the system, reduces stress levels and promotes restorative rest. Massage therapy can relieve muscle and joint pain and restore muscles and joints to their maximum range of motion while contributing to relaxation and improved energy levels.

Therapeutic massage

Therapeutic massage consists of a range of pressures and manipulations exerted on the surface of the skin. These pressures stimulate a significant number of painful elements or internal dysfunctions.

Therapeutic massage allows, among other things, to release endorphins, activate blood and lymphatic circulation, improve intestinal transit, soothe muscle pain, strengthen the immune system and relieve the effects of daily stress.

Massage process

Therapeutic massage differs from relaxing massages by its benefits for the body.

Athletes also benefit from therapeutic massage. They use it to improve muscle tone, tissue oxygenation and muscle recovery.

Therapists can use tools such as vibrators, a professional vibration device, which provide relief from pain associated with spasms and bruising. A massaging product, usually an essential oil, is used for the massage. We also use other massage products, including massage powder, creams and gels.
