Massage can be Dangerous

massage therapist suppliesPerhaps you caught the story on A Current Affair recently about the dangers of cheap massages – with previously healthy people reporting numbness, pain, and impaired movement following a massage treatment.

Massage centres have popped up in shopping centres all over the country and may be quick and convenient – but is your body in good hands? Has your massage therapist been properly trained? Are the premises thoroughly clean? Are you protected if something goes wrong?

A Qualified Massage Therapist

Always check to see that your massage therapist has a reputable qualification – that way you can be sure that not only have they learned about massage techniques, but also about the body and how it works.

Jean at Jaibe Beauty is qualified in:

  • Swedish Massage – arguably the most popular form of massage, where the therapist uses gentle strokes and kneading to promote relaxation and wellbeing.
  • Sports Massage – similar to Swedish massage, sports massage specifically addresses the needs of athletes.
  • Reflexology – the stimulation of reflex points on the feet, hands and head to relieve tension in the body.
  • Myofascial Release – focuses on the muscle “knots” that are painful when pressed, and can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.
