Perth Deep Tissue and Perth Relaxation Massage. Our skin is the primary protective barrier of our body, responsible for binding in moisture and creating skin’s permeability barrier, helping to prevent bacteria and viruses from penetrating the skin’s surface. Through the application of pressure, friction and motion massaging aims to promote a person's general well being by enhancing the central nervous system; promoting cell regeneration of the epidermis, reducing adhesions (knots) in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage maintains and improves the range of motion and promotes circulation, muscle tone and the release of hormones and proteins that promote well being and the body's repair. The increase in surface temperature causes a pleasant sensation of well-being and promotes in reducing discomfort, pain and localised injury. Effects on blood circulation: The mechanical action of massage stimulates the production of a tissue hormone, histamine, which is a messenger in many processes including inflammatory and immune, which activates vasodilatation by increasing the blood supply and therefore the oxygenation of tissues. Effects on muscles: Massage promotes muscle recovery and helps restore muscle tone and performance to improve personal performance and well being. It also stimulates the electrical activity of the fibers, increasing oxygenation and therefore speeding up recovery. Effect on the nervous system: During massage therapy, large amounts of endorphins are released into a person’s bloodstream. This is why people experience a sense of relaxation and well-being after receiving a massage. As the skin and muscles are kneaded during a massage session, the body releases endorphins into the bloodstream and the brain is prompted to create even more endorphins. For those who suffer from chronic conditions such as anxiety, pain, or depression, regular massage therapy sessions can provide a consistent release of endorphins to battle the symptoms of their conditions.
Perth Massage (from the Greek massein which means "kneading", "shaping") is the oldest form of physical therapy, used over time by different civilizations, to alleviate pain and to relax the muscles by removing fatigue. Its precise definition is: "System of mechanical actions performed on the surface of the body, with the aim of removing any limitations of the biological functions of the human body and increasing the physical and intellectual capacities of the individual".
