    Massage uses therapeutic touch to help soothe soft tissue and encourage relaxation. Many studies show that massage can successfully alleviate a range of disorders including back pain, stress and anxiety and muscle tension. It is frequently recommended as part of a treatment plan for almost all chronic disease states especially cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and mood disorders.

    What is massage?

    Massage uses different strokes such as pressing, rubbing and kneading to manipulate the muscles, tendons, ligaments and skin. This is done to promote flexibility and relaxation of the tissues, to release tension and to break the pain cycle.

    The application of oil ensures a smooth touch. The addition of essential oils can elevate the results of massage by eliciting a therapeutic response. For example lavender can help relieve headaches.

    What are the benefits of massage”

    Massage induces a sense of deep relaxation and calm due to the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing. It also helps to reduce elevated stress hormones which have been shown to impair our immune system.

    Some of the physical benefits of massage include:

    • Reduced muscle tension
    • Improved circulation
    • Stimulation of the lymphatic system
    • Reduction of stress hormones
    • Increased joint mobility and flexibility
    • Improved skin tone
    • Speedier healing of soft tissue injuries
    • Heightened mental alertness
    • Reduced anxiety and depression.

      Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort and a sense of empowerment. As is the case at Sivanna, this is enhanced by a beautiful, calming and fragrant environment in which to relax.

      • Carry oxygen to the hypothalamus, pineal, pituitary and the sites of intuition and wareness

      “The essential oils help to release hurt feelings, insults and negative emotions, allowing one to move on from emotional pains that form a barrier to new beginnings. The vibrational frequency of certain oils help reach deep into the DNA cell memory creating a positive frequency that allows one to “forgive and let go” and move into a better space of time and energy”.
