A friend recently asked me: “What is the point of massage?” It was a good question. I thought about it. When clients come to my massage therapy practice in York they come for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is for relaxation. Other times it is for the release of physical tension. It can be for stress relief. I have had clients who have been assaulted, in which case I often find I have to work on three things – physical injury, mental trauma and freeing them from the energy of the person who assaulted them which may be trapped inside them. Massage works on many levels, and often on issues you did not have in mind when booking the massage.
