What is Holistic Massage?

Holistic means 'whole'.  So this form of massage deals with you as a 'whole'.  Like other therapies, it is not just looking to treat the symptoms, but to establish the cause, whether it be internal or external. The aim is to rebalance the body so it achieves homeostasis or balance.  Holistic massage is a therapeutic application of touch that is also a supportive, relaxing treatment that encourages the mind to slow down whilst energy is increased.  This treatment also lifts the spirit on an emotional level.
