August 2017 – Issue 1
Welcome to my inaugural blog to mark the launch of Mark Rigby Therapies. Today I am going to talk about face and hand massage as well as a little bit about how I became a massage therapist.
Face and hand massage is incredibly relaxing – even stunningly so. Our faces and hands contain more – a lot more – nerve endings than most other parts of the body; this means they readily respond to massage touch.
Taking early retirement from HMRC, I decided to take a holiday in the Algarve in Portugal. I had not had a decent holiday for years. While there I had my first ever massage and was pleasantly surprised with how I felt afterwards and the lasting benefit. I have been hooked ever since.
Knowing the personal benefits of massage, I was able to appreciate the benefits for others. This led me to sign up for a course in Swedish massage followed by a course in Indian head massage.
A hand and arm massage can relieve muscular stress in the fingers, thumbs and wrists resulting from regular use of a computer keyboard or smartphone virtual keypad.
The first time I received a massage that included face I was astonished at the dramatic impact finger touch massage has on the face. Knowing how remarkably it benefits me, providing face and hand massage is one of my favourite components in offering a therapy session.
If you have never had face and hand massage as part of a massage therapy give it a try – hopefully you will love it as much as I do.
Being mobile I can provide full body massage or Indian head massage in the comfort of your own home.
