Holistic Massage is a type of massage that helps to relax a person physically, mentally and emotionally. Stress and tension, as experienced in everyday life, reduces the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles and organs, and can also restrict lymph and blood supply to the tissues, among many other long-term effects. 

There are various techniques used in Holistic Massage, for example, kneading, sliding, broadening, percussion and skin rolling. All these techniques help to reduce tension and stress, along with their short and long-term negative effects. Massage also soothes tight, tired muscles, leading to a feeling of greater well-being and relaxation. If tension is not treated in the body, a person can become fatigued, aches and pains will develop, and muscle tightness and stiffness can occur, which can increase the chance of injury.
