Prema Clinic Massage
What is massage?
Massage is the therapeutic manipulation of the body’s soft tissues by a trained practitioner. It is associated with the systematic application of a series of stroking, rubbing, kneading, percussion, compression and/or other specialised massage techniques. Massage is performed with the aim of achieving a beneficial physiological response – such as: relieving muscle tension, improving the circulation of blood or lymphatic fluid, or easing pain.
Massage has been successfully used as a form of body treatment in many countries for hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of years. Nowadays in New Zealand, massage is widely recognised as a complementary or stand-alone form of wellness, relaxation and/or remedial treatment that is used to support clients in maintaining or improving their health.
