Hippocrates, now known as The Father of Medicine, long held on to the idea that the body should be treated as a whole, rather than its individual parts, believing that disease, was in fact dis-ease…with this philosophy in mind, he determined that the art of rubbing tissue up towards the heart, would aid in the circulation of blood and lymph, thereby creating a healthier system..we still adhere to this practice today and it has become the core foundation of Swedish massage therapy.
Soma, or touch therapies have since been proven to promote the release of our ‘feel good’ chemicals, endorphins like serotonin and dopamine.
So whether you’re feeling achy and sore, or just plain blue, massage therapy may hold the cure for you.
