Recently, after a massage at my massage therapy practice in York, a client said that they found the massage “nourishing”. I had never heard anyone use this word to describe massage before. I thought about it. In my opinion, it is a very good word to use. Massage can nourish the mind and body. You can feel lighter after a massage, as if a burden has been lifted. It can feel as if you have been given a new strength – both emotionally and physically. Nourishing may not have been a word I would have previously chosen to describe massage, but it is a good word to use.
