Relaxation Massage

What is Relaxation Massage?

It focuses mainly on giving the client quality time to recover from the daily stresses of everyday life. When you want to receive a relaxation massage, you can expect the treatment to involve:

  • Long smooth gliding strokes that are both rhythmic and flowing.

  • Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful.

  • A treatment designed to relax and soothe you, but not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying conditions.

  • A therapist who also takes the massage environment into account – look for soothing music, warm towels, and occasionally using essential oils to enhance both the environment and the effects of the massage.

What are the health benefits?

Just like any other massages, the benefits received from a relaxation massage usually lasts several days after receiving the treatment. Relaxation massage can offer the following benefits:

  • Lowers blood pressure – at least for a while.

  • Improves peripheral circulation.

  • Improves skin tone and appearance.

  • Improves gastrointestinal motility (bowel movements will become more regular).

  • Reduces muscle tension such as the relief of muscle tension headaches.

  • Relieves any stress-related symptoms. This can include providing a boost to the immune system after undergoing regular treatments.
