Massage - at The Body Barber


It seems that stress is all around us theses days, we can't seem to go through one day without experiencing some form of worry or stress making some of us more anxious than others. Stress and anxiety can have a tremendous impact on your health with feeling ill being one of the most common conditions and when there's no relief, constant stress becomes 'distress'.

Cortisol is the hormone produced in response to stress, and just a 60 minute  relaxation or deep tissue massage can lower the cortisol levels allowing serotonin, an anti-pain mechanism of our bodies, to increase giving your body's ability to fight off anxiety, pain and depression.

Decreasing physical and emotional stress with massage by using the forearms, hands, fingertips and elbows, is optimal to improving overall health and well-being.

At The Body Barber, be assured that our therapist is properly educated and practices with the highest integrity using professional draping techniques, should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate in contacting us.

We look forward to de-stressing you soon !

 

 

COVID-19 Reopening

Unfortunately I am currently closed due to stage 4 government restrictions.

Firstly, I’m so incredibly grateful for everyone’s support and well-wishing texts through this time, thank you !

Now, what you’re all wondering … Road Map to Reopening? “For metropolitan Melbourne, the third step of the roadmap is earmarked for October 26th provided the average number of cases in the fortnight prior is less than five”.

“Following further considerations in public health advice, I can announce that beauty and personal services where a mask can be worn for the entire time that the person is getting the services they are accessing will be able to proceed in the third step alongside hairdressers.” (Premier of Vic.)

Online bookings, due to their short fallings in time management, will NOT be activated until the stampeded and dust has settled.
