Relaxation Massage

What is a relaxation massage?

 

There is no better way to relax than experiencing a relaxation massage. Have you ever had one of those days or weeks or years for that matter that you seem to be stressed all the time? That is when you know it is time to have a relaxation massage. This type of massage is not meant to work deep muscles or trigger points, it works the surface muscles soothing all the tension from them.  Many of our patients even fall asleep during their relaxation massage.

Relaxation massages not only relax the muscles in your body but also the mind. The gentle smooth strokes of this type of massage increase blood flow, muscle relaxation, calming of the nerves, and restoration of your body's energy balance.

Relaxation massage can also be known as a Swedish massage, however, the main focus of this massage is to destress. It calms the mood and relaxes the nervous system allowing your body and mind to let go of its stressful thoughts.

 

Type "A" personality people and those who are under great stress week after week would benefit greatly both mentally and physically from a relaxation massage.
