The term ‘holistic’ derives from the ancient Greek word and means whole. A holistic massage is one that treats the body as a whole – rejuvenating tired muscles and joints whilst replenishing your spirit.
Holistic therapies have been employed for thousands of years, with the first written record of the therapy found in the Yellow Emperor’s Classic Book of Internal Medicine in 2700 BCE. Originating in China, Egypt and India, the therapy is regarded as the cornerstone of holistic medicine, combining meditation, relaxation and aromatherapy.
Today, holistic therapy is as popular as it has ever been. People across the UK choose to seek holistic treatments to help cure them of a variety of troublesome physical ailments. The therapy is as diverse as it is effective. From acupuncture to homeopathy, naturopathy to reiki, and the ever-popular holistic massages, it’s obvious thatholistic treatments are here to stay.
Holistic massage treatment profoundly helps to ease any physical tension that has arose as a direct result of stress. Not only that, the therapy helps to enhance a person’s emotional and spiritual well-being, leaving them better equipped to manage tension and stress in the future.
