The Wonders Of A Full Body Massage

There is very little to beat a full body massage delivered by a licensed professional massage therapist. It relieves you of tensions of the body and the mind, and some even go so far as to say, the soul. This article does not refer to nor recommend visits to those massage parlors that are run by unlicensed and untrained personnel.

The benefits of a full body massage are many.

Massage is based on a specific psychosomatic treatment that is popularly called 'touch therapy'. We all know the effect and value of a hearty hug, an emotional embrace, a tender touch, and a kindly kiss. Few know that these 'touches' actually help the body to heal itself in an inexplicable but wonderful way. The massage stimulates the blood circulation which is a prime treatment in itself, because a better blood flow improves excretion of toxic substances from the body, improves the supply of oxygen to the muscles and organs, improves the supply of disease-fighting antibodies to sites under virulent attack. Even the skin benefits from a massage. It becomes tauter, even radiant, so much so that people not only look younger they actually feel younger! So who needs Ponce de Leon when you have a good masseuse!

Never had one before? Try it for a wonderful experience!

A visit to a massage parlor can cost you between $50 and $100 for an hour long session by a licensed masseuse. The cost is well worth the experience. In the private cabin that you'll be assigned, you'll have to remove your clothes and lie face down on a massage table. An assistant will drape a sheet over you, as much for warmth as for modesty. The part being massaged will be uncovered and when that's been massaged it will be covered up and the next portion will be uncovered. The masseuse will gently massage the body, using a massage oil, maybe, to help her fingers slide smoothly over the muscles. Aromatic oils may be mixed in with the massage oil for added aroma therapeutic effect.

The masseuse will begin at the feet and then continue up to the hips. You'll feel the massage magic begin to work. Indescribably pleasant, the massage will release the negative tensions from the soles of your feet, your calves, your thighs, and then your hips. You'll feel a warmth coursing through your veins, sorry, arteries! A warmth which heals away all those ailments, those cricks in the joints, those sore spots in the hams.

Finished with the hips, the massage will proceed upwards over the back, the shoulders, your arms and hands, then get back to the neck and finally finish at your head.

Massaging generates a little heat inside the body which heals the body from the inside. Thus therapeutic heat is generated right at the spot where it is needed. This process of internal healing is wonderfully restorative. There is just one thing you must be careful about: don't visit any of these shady massage parlors. Ask around before selecting one to give your custom to. Insist on being massaged by a professional masseuse who has undergone a rigorous training and passed a state-approved examination before being licensed to practice in public. This is to make sure that you are not harmed in any way. So, see you at the massage parlor!
