Massage is a method of relaxation and health training based on the impact of mechanics on parts of the body for the purpose of treating stress, reducing pain and fatigue. It has appeared since ancient times and is very popularly applied by people around the world.

Over time with the process of cultural exchange, reflexology techniques were developed by the Japanese who returned to their home countries in the direction of Doubt and treatment with the name Shiatsu. In the West, Americans were the first to apply herbal massage.

The ancient Greeks used massage as healing techniques. Hippocrates (from 460 to 377 BC), the father of medicine, used herbs with oils to conduct massage, acupressure.

Now, let’s come to L’atelier Beauty Spa with fun facts about massage.

The six things to do after your massage.


There are approximately 5 million touch receptors in our skin? 3,000 in a finger tip. This is  because touch is the first sense to develop on the human body and the last to fade. That is why massage is so powerful. With the touch of the finger tip, it affects every other sense in the body, activate senses and make it deeply relaxing and healing. That’s why reflexology therapy is a popular method of healing. The human touch is known to have numerous attributes.  If you’re looking for physical and mental relief from pain, a shiatsu is ideal for you.


The skin is the largest organ on our body. That is why we should not take it for granted. Reflexology is important for the skin. Especially facial massages can help reduce the appearance and development of wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. And body shiatsu help curb the aging process and reduce skin wrinkles. 


Reflexology can help scars fade, and can be more beneficial than lotion? This may still be a myth. BUT while massage may not reduce scarring, massaging a wound with ointment can bolster the wound healing process and, in turn, reduce the appearance of scarring. … However, research has found that massage might not be so beneficial after all, it might help reduce pain and itching during wound healing. 


Too much sitting (and sleeping) can cause to an early death. A new study of older women in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine finds that sitting for long stretches of time increases the odds of an untimely death. The more hours women in the study spent sitting at work, driving, lying on the couch watching TV, or engaged in other leisurely pursuits, the greater their odds of dying early from all causes, including heart disease and cancer.


Foot massages can improve your mood and overall health. Regular shiatsu improves circulation, stimulates muscles, reduces tension, often eases pain. Your feet work hard for you every day. … Just like your neck, back, and shoulders, your feet can also benefit from a regular rubdown. Foot reflexology improves circulation, stimulates muscles, reduces tension, and often eases pain.


A 60-minute massage is the same as getting 7-8 hours of good sleep.  Shiatsu is known for producing seratonin in the body which makes you good and helps you relax. Serotonin also forms melatonin in the body, which is the hormone that causes us to fall asleep


Tipping less than $10 dollars is frowned upon. The standard hospitality rate for massage tipping is 20 percent. For example, if a massage or body treatment costs $100, a 20 percent tip would be $20. But you can tip more or less depending on how satisfied you are with the massage. 


Massaging while drunk can make you more drunk. It has been proven that massaging amplifies drunkness. Reflexology increases circulation and flushes toxins from muscles, which means that alcohol both hits your bloodstream more quickly and remains there longer. Some shiatsu therapists have seen tipsy customers become more drunk during a massage because of this amplification effect. 


A foot reflexology can fix your stuffy sinuses. Your body is made up of nerves all over your body. You have thousands of nerves that are interconnected and stimulate each other. A foot shiatsu can help cure stuffy sinuses or even chronic sinuses. Reflexology points for sinuses are situated at the back of all ten toes, opposite the nails and at the tip of all the fingers excluding both thumbs. They can be located very easily and are representative of the sinus tissue. When activated, they can help mitigate the sinusitis symptoms which cause distress.

“A good massage is one of the greatest pleasures in life with many therapeutic benefits.”
