What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a practice that involves a trained massage therapist using skilled techniques to  manipulate the soft tissue of the body. During a massage session, the therapist varies the amount of  pressure and movement they apply to these tissues, depending on the client's specific needs. 
At Swiss Aesthetics we offer targeted massages such as lymphatic drainage massages, reflexology or full  body massages and are happy to help you in choosing the right massage for your needs.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is an important part of integrative medicine, which combines conventional medical treatments with complementary therapies. It can be used to address a wide range of medical conditions and has been found to  have several benefits. For example, studies have shown that massage can help reduce stress, alleviate pain and muscle tightness, promote relaxation, and even improve the immune system's functioning.

What are the benefits of Massages?

Stress Relief: Massages can help reduce stress by promoting relaxation and releasing tension in  muscles. The gentle pressure applied during a massage can trigger the body's relaxation response, 
leading to reduced levels of stress hormones like cortisol.
Pain Relief: Massage therapy can alleviate various types of pain, including chronic pain conditions like  back pain or arthritis. The manipulation of soft tissues can help improve blood circulation, reduce  inflammation, and release endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.
Muscle Relaxation: Massages can relieve muscle tension and stiffness, promoting flexibility and range of  motion. This is especially beneficial for individuals who engage in repetitive motions or have muscular  imbalances.
Improved Circulation: The pressure applied during massages helps stimulate blood flow, enhancing the  delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues and organs. Improved circulation can also aid in the removal of  metabolic waste products from the body.
Enhanced Immunity: Some research suggests that regular massages may boost the immune system by  increasing the activity of natural killer cells, which play a key role in defending the body against pathogens  and infections.
Better Sleep: Massages can promote relaxation and reduce insomnia by calming the nervous system and  promoting the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with sleep regulation.
Mood Enhancement: Massage therapy has been shown to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression by  promoting relaxation and reducing the levels of stress hormones in the body. The release of endorphins  during a massage can also elevate mood and promote a sense of well-being
