Relaxation Massage

What Is Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is generally a smooth, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, improves circulation, range of movement, and relieves muscular tension. Modern relaxation massage is made up of a combination of styles, but the ultimate purpose is to help the client to relax, unwind and reduce stress.

During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious muscle tissue knots and adhesions. The therapist won’t push your pain limits unless really needed. They will likely ask if you want more pressure to get a particular muscle or group of muscles to release. It is quite possible to fall asleep during a relaxation massage, and this is actually very common.

You Need A Massage: Five Symptoms

Do you suffer any of the following?

  • Sore neck and shoulders
  • Headaches
  • Back Ache
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Insomnia

Chances are you are not looking after yourself. Although sometimes these symptoms are related to other issues, simply taking the time out to relax weekly or fortnightly can reduce or eliminate these symptoms. Getting a chance to unwind, and just have you time is often the best remedy. Getting a relaxation massage can be a great way to have that you time most people overlook.

Why Relaxation Massage Works

Relaxation massage has several effects on the body, including calming the nervous system, promoting a sense of well-being, improving blood circulation and stimulating the body’s lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.
