During the last 10 years I have been studying different massage techniques from traditional massage to oriental philosophy like tantra style, ayurveda, method and shiatsu.
I have worked as masseuse for the best hotels and Spas in Barcelona, but 5 years ago I decided to create my own mobile massage company that has been a big success.
If you are in Barcelona and you would like to have a great moment, book an appointment with me and I will go where you are to give you a massage treatment that you will never forget.
Massage therapy is defined as “the manual manipulation of muscular structure and soft body tissues of the human body (including muscle,
connective tissue, tendons and ligaments).” Massage “modalities” have been used for thousands of years by people living all over the world as a means of naturally treating both mental and physical body ailments.
Today, scientific studies show that massage therapy improves functions of the lymphatic system, helps regulate hormones and can prevent many injuries.
Not only is massage therapy an effective way to help soothe sore muscles and improve blood flow, it also doubles as a powerful, natural stress reliever for many people.
Today, there’s a wide range of massage techniques used
by therapists to help people overcome common health conditions like fibromyalgia, anxiety and arthritis. Massage techniques like Swedish massage, spots massages and reflexology are now commonly being offered at such places as spas, yoga studies, hotels and chiropractic offices.
“ Massage therapy improves functions of the lymphatic system, helps regulate hormones and can prevent many injuries. ”
Throughout history massage has been employed to improve recovery time, restore energy, manage stress and ease body aches. The first records of massages date back over 3,000 years to Ancient China, and today massages are considered to be one of the longest-standing forms of “healing art.”
Many of the world’s most influential cultures have had their own specific therapies and techniques related to body massages that have been handed down from generation to generation. This includes the Ancient Greeks, Hindus, Persians, Egyptians French, Swedish, Thai, Indian, Japanese and Chinese.
Today their teachings continue to carry massage therapy forward into conventional medicine practices. “Massage” can mean a lot of different things depending on who you ask. It’s believed that the French first termed the word “massage” to describe a healing practice of kneading the body.
They believed that friction and pressure applied to certain areas on the body could provide benefits by breaking up scar tissue, even if at the time the massage didn’t actually feel so comfortable.
