What is Therapy Massage?
Therapy Massage is aimed at preventing ailments and improving overall health through various massage disciplines: chair massage, foot reflexology massage, Aromatherapy - Essential Oil Massage on a Table and Thai table massage. In Asia massage is part of regular medicine, and in the west, the benefits of massage are also becoming more and more familiar. Thus, research shows that 15 minutes of chair massage results in reduced stress at work, increased alertness and increased speed and accuracy of mathematical calculations. Office workers who are regularly massaged are more alert, perform better and are less stressed. Chair massage is the best massage to learn if you want a flexible job. As a chair massage therapist you can work in markets, festivals, offices, shops, businesses and more. Foot reflexology is the most common massage in Asia against insomnia, headache, backache, knee pain, problems in the foot, stress and more. The benefits of foot reflexology are not yet known in the West, but awareness grows, so you will have big career opportunities as a foot reflexologist. It is known that through Aromatherapy - Essential Oil Massage on a Table people recover faster from injuries and also to stay healthy. In addition, this is the perfect massage to improve your immune system (by stimulating the lymphatic movement that filters waste from white blood cells that fight bacteria), reducing stress (by reducing the level of cortisol in your body), to become happier (by increasing endorphin, the happy hormone) and fight insomnia (the massage balances your mood through the impact on the endocrine system). And the Thai Table Massage is the most advanced and increasingly popular massage in wellness centres, because of the many health benefits of this massage technique. As a Therapy Massage Practitioner, you have the opportunity to have a very varied job because of the different massage techniques you learn, and you can also offer the techniques in different locations and companies.
