What can Massage do for YOU?

Massages are often sold as a purely indulgent treat that you get when you visit a spa or go on holidays, but there’s so much more to massage than just a feel good treat. Did you know that the symptoms of many health problems can be reduced and even eliminated with regular massage?

Here are a few conditions that massage can work really well on; a few you probably know and some that may surprise you!

Stress – It’s no surprise that a regular dose of massage therapy is good for your stress levels, it works by helping to lower your blood pressure, improve your quality of sleep, and by reducing your stress levels, it’s also thought to help reduce the risk of heart disease.

Lower Back Pain – This is such a common problem, often caused by bad posture at work. Poor posture and sitting for too long can cause a lot of lower back problems. Get your massage therapist on the case and you can hopefully wave goodbye to a sore back.

Joint Stiffness – Massage can be a blessed relief for people dealing with the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and other joint problems.

Circulation – There are a whole range of health problems that can be caused by bad circulation, so boosting your circulation will be a bonus for your whole body. Regular massage helps to get the blood moving, getting essential nutrients to where they are needed in your tissues and vital organs much faster. Can also help to improve the circulation of lymph – the fluid that carries metabolic waste away from your muscles and internal organs.

If you need help with any of these health issues call Divine Therapy 3824 1958 to book an appointment today or save time and book online at  www.divine-therapy.com/massage

Far Infrared Sauna – Whats the benefits?

Far Infrared sauna

Why we love our Far Infrared Sauna at Divine Therapy!

Why Infrared?

Traditional saunas work by splashing water over heating rocks to intensify the feeling of heat. Infrared saunas, work with infrared rays heating the body.

The infrared works the same way the sun does, without the harmful UV rays, by penetrating the body into the joints and muscles. Infrared saunas heat your body, without the uncomfortable humidity and claustrophobic feel of traditional saunas.

 

 

 

Our Detox Box is wonderfully relaxing and has many health
benefits:

Blood Circulation

When our body heats up, it naturally tries to cool itself. Our heart pumps
faster and our blood vessels expand, increasing our blood flow.

Weight Control and Cellulite

Thermo regularity is the control of our body temperature, it affects our heart
rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. When our body heats up, everything speeds
up, and like exercising, our thermoregulation kicks in. This is hard work for
the body and reduces excess moisture, salt and fat. You can burn 400-600
calories in one 30 minute session!
That’s like running a marathon!

Aging

Perspiration is a way of exfoliating the skin, removing dirt, excess oil and
dead skin cells leaving fresh healthy skin revealed. An increased blood
circulation also encourages cell renewal and brings a healthy glow to your
appearance.

Scarring, Muscle and Joint Pain

Heat relieves pain by expanding the blood vessels allowing more oxygen to reach
the affected areas of the body. This helps to reduce pain and helps speed up the
healing process. When this is combined with cell renewal, scarring is reduced.

Stress & Fatigue

Just like in massage, heat helps to loosen and relax the body.

Immune System

When we are sick, we may develop a fever. This is over body way of fighting
illness and ridding toxins for our body. The infrared sauna imitates a fever
without the pain or illness. The body’s immune system is then activated and
wards off unwanted visitors in our body.

Detoxification

We are exposed to toxins every day such as nicotine, alcohol, cholesterol,
sodium and carcinogenic heavy metals. By using the infrared sauna, we are able
to help rid our bodies of these impurities by sweating.

Give us a call on 07 3824 1958 to book your Detox Box
session and try it for yourself!
