Busy Hawke's Bay shoppers got an unexpected chance to slow down and take a weight off over the weekend, thanks to free massages being offered by the Hastings-based Lotus Holistic Centre and Body Bliss.  More than 100 people took the chance to get a free massage while they shopped at The Warehouse and the Bay Plaza in Hastings.  The massages were offered for free as part of Massage New Zealand Awareness Week.

Many people experienced massage for their first time, and plenty of children gave it a go, too.  One happy customer, Andres from Hastings, said "I feel so much better", and will be heading to Lotus Holistic Centre to get some more regular massage therapy.

Lotus Holistic Centre business manager Cathy Allan was thrilled with the turnout from the public, and their willingness to try receiving a massage.  She said her organisation was particularly interested in raising awareness of the benefits of massage.  "We are trying to make people aware of how beneficial massage can be, especially those with postural stress due to working at a computer all day, lifting heavy things often (including children), or just from the pressures of life," Ms Allan said.  Every year, Massage New Zealand has a different theme for their awareness week.  This year the focus is on anxiety/stress, and how massage can help in releasing tight muscles that result in poor posture and additional physical problems if the issue is not dealt with.  Lotus Holistic Centre is currently enrolling students for their 2015 full time and part time massage courses.  "Getting a massage almost every day for a year is a great way of studying, if you ask me!" Ms Allan said.
