The importance of relaxation and well-being can’t be underestimated and one of the most noted effects of massage is a greater feeling of calm and relaxation. It reduces both emotional and physical stress, which is why it is often recommended in stress and anxiety treatment programs. The soothing, pampering benefits of massage encourage the release of endorphins – the wonderful chemicals that give us the feel-good factor. Conversely, those nasty stress inducing hormones such as norepinephrine, adrenaline and cortisol are reduced.
Releasing muscle tension and pain
Good massage techniques are a wonderful way of releasing trigger points, stretching and elongating muscles and breaking down adhesions. Lisa can focus on areas that are stiff, injured or just plain sore. By increasing the blood flow to the tissues and releasing the tension, massage not only helps alleviate the pain, but can also help eliminate toxins and oxygenate the cells.
Improved skin tone
Massage can help give you healthy and toned skin – it will reduce tension in the skin and adjoining tissues as well as increasing circulation. Increased circulation in and under the skin can aid the nutrition cycle and encourage cell regeneration. Happily, massage also stimulates sebum production, helping to improve suppleness, moisturising and softening dry skin.
Lisa - Remedial Massage Therapist
Following a career as a professional contemporary dancer Lisa knew she wanted to become a massage therapist. She was always very intrigued by the human body with anatomy being one of her favourite subjects at Uni. After suffering a myriad of injuries Lisa worked closely with her therapists to recover from and prevent further injuries, this inspired her to go back to study and complete her Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2017.
Lisa also loves to teach dance and is a Barre Pilates instructor at SMAPS. This has helped to develop the massage therapist she is today, gaining a great understanding of how the body works and providing knowledge of stretches and exercises to help correct posture and prevent injuries.
Shortly after finishing her studies Lisa welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Harvey, into her family which has kept her busy! Lisa is very excited to be joining the Low Tox Fox team as a Massage Therapist in 2019 - and if she looks familiar thats because she's Amy's sister!
Lisa is currently practicing Fridays here at The Low Tox Fox
