Human touch can have a profound effect on physical and emotional wellbeing. Massage therapy is the therapeutic use of touch, by hands, elbows or feet. Through the use of a variety of techniques a bond forms between the client and the therapist. Massage can be comforting and soothing, letting go of toxins from tissue and dispersing lactic acid. Endorphins, the body's natural feel good factor are released from muscles during massage.

Massage Therapy can take different forms:

Just for today , let go of anger.
Just for today, let go of worry.
Just for today, count your blessings and honour your parents, teachers and neighbours.
Just for today, live honestly.
Just for today, be kind to all living things.
The Five Spiritual Principles of Reiki
Dr. Mikao Usui. Founder of Reiki.
