What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
May 12, 2017
As one of the world’s oldest and most popular remedial therapies, it’s not surprising that getting a massage can positively influence your health and wellbeing in a number of ways.
For instance, were you aware that undertaking regular massage therapy can reduce stress, boost your immunity and even ease muscle tension and pain?
So, what is massage therapy and how can it help improve your health and wellbeing?
What is a Massage?
When we talk about massages we’re referring to the pressing, rubbing and manipulation of your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The type of massage you get will depend on the reason you’re seeking out massage therapy. For example, if you’re after a relaxing massage, you’ll likely get a Swedish-style massage, which is a gentle form of massage that focuses on long strokes, kneading and deep circular movements, as well as vibration and tapping.
However, if you’ve experienced some form of muscle damage you’ll most likely need a deep massage to aid your recovery. This technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.
Some of the types of massage we offer at Serene Day Spa include:
- Aromatherapy massages
- Pregnancy massages for Perth mums-to-be
- Back, neck and shoulder massages
- Full body and scalp massages
- Deep tissue massages
- Remedial massages
- Hot stone massages
- Warm bamboo massages

Getting a massage is undoubtedly one of the best ways to wind down after a long week, but massages offer a lot more than just relaxation.
- Reduce stress
- Boost your immunity
- Heighten your mental alertness
- Relieve muscle tension and pain
- Improve joint mobility
- Relieving tension can also help improve your posture
- By increasing circulation under the skin, massaging can improve the nutrition cycle, which increases cell regeneration and therefore the appearance of your skin
These benefits alone are pretty impressive, but massage can also help relieve any pain and discomfort caused from the following conditions:
- Depression and anxiety

- Chronic pain and constipation
Remedial massage is a fantastic alternative treatment that can assist with everyday ailments, as well as relaxation.
