From our birth, our natural instinct is to respond positively to human touch and affection. Like a baby who calms down thanks to the caresses of his mother.
This instinct does not fade when we become adults. When another person caresses and massages you, this sensation automatically helps calm you down. It is associated with factors such as improving circulation, reducing blood pressure, among others, that help reduce stress. Too much stress can negatively affect our mental and physical health.
This type of massage consists of pressing, stretching and improving mobility using different parts of the body such as the hands, elbows or even the feet. On a physical level, it improves circulation, joint and muscle pain and achieves relaxation. On a mental level, it helps reduce stress and anxiety.
