Deep Tissue Massage in Wandsworth SW18
Our Physiotherapist and Osteopath in Wandsworth SW18 provide deep tissue and therapeutic Massage or Pregnancy Massage.
Massage is a mode of manual therapy that primarily works on the muscular system of the body. It is proven to be effective in treating tension that can arise from tight muscles and stiff joints, as well as symptoms associated with stress and anxiety.
It is a firm but effective way to reduce symptoms associated with sports injuries and postural related issues and it can also help facilitate circulation as well as support the integrity of skeletal system.
Adrenaline and cortisol are both stress hormones which are released to boost your heart rate and blood sugar level. These are prehistoric reactions that were part of human survival. However, when there’s never any relief from stress, it can manifest in physical symptoms like headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, insomnia, anger, drug and alcohol abuse, and depression to name a few.
Experts estimate that 90% or more of disease is stress-related. High levels of cortisol and adrenaline have been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Nothing ages you faster, internally and externally, then high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether may be unrealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Two things happen during a massage, stress hormones are decreased, and endorphins, the ‘feel good’ hormones, are increased. The increase in endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, results in a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic as well as acute stress much easier to overcome. Stress relief alone can improve your vitality and state of mind.
By decreasing cortisol and adrenaline levels, rest and recovery can take place, potentially improving your health profile and disease risk. A regular massage programme can decrease blood pressure, which can contribute to lowering the odds of having a heart attack, kidney failure, or a stroke. Recent studies have shown the benefit of massage to cancer patients in reducing pain and nausea associated with treatment, as well as improving emotional state
