In a recent report by the British Beauty Council, focusing on the effects of personal care services on mental health & wellbeing, it was revealed that touch therapy, along with massages, can have a significant effect on reducing mental health problems by over 10%.
There is also evidence that these types of treatments can address fatigue, compromise immune issues, pre and post-menopausal problems and improve cancer therapy.
