Massage has a number of health benefits:

l It reduces tension and anxiety.
l Massage improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
l Massage stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body's waste products.
l Massage prevents and relieves muscle cramps and spasms.
l Massage therapy can also help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica and muscle spasms.
Contraindications for massage:
l You shouldn't get massage if you have a fever, infections, inflammation, osteoporosis and other medical conditions.
lIf you have any questions about whether a massage will be right for you because of an existing medical condition, speak to a massage therapist before you make your appointment.
Tips to enjoy your massage:

l If you don't want to remove all your clothing, discuss it with the therapist.
