Massage is the systematic manipulation of soft tissue using a form of touch, which promotes comfort and relaxation. Working on the skin with soft tissues and muscles has an effect on all major and minor systems of the body. It improves general health and enables deep relaxation or re-energising as well as relief from aches, pain or stiffness.

It fosters self-esteem, helping people to become more aware and accepting of their body, their emotional life and their past.
