At it’s heart, massage is about body wellness. It’s an exercise that brings the body back into balance and there are many things we can do to help our bodies stay strong and in tune.
The importance of water cannot be overstated, especially on an island with changing weather patterns, exposure to strong tropical sun, and other unique environmental circumstances. Some of the benefits of water include:
- Healthy skin
- Lose weight
- Flush toxins
- Reduce your risk of a heart attack
- Cushion and lube your joints and muscles
- Stay regular
- Stay hydrated, get energized, and be alert
- Regulate your body temperature

- Overall wellness

Ice is Nice
Ice can be very effective as an injury treatment, especially when applied immediately after an injury.
Ice permits your body to heal quickly in two ways: it promotes blood circulation (more than heat) and it numbs the pain so you can move the injured area.
Moving is beneficial because the best healing takes place when you actively move your injured part.
Movement allows the new-forming tissue to remain pliable and healthy while keeping abnormal scar tissue from forming. …and of course, massage also helps healing.
