Specialised Massage Treatment Focused on Relaxation and Stress reduction
Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style of massage that promotes general relaxation. It focuses mainly on giving the client quality time to recover from the daily stresses of everyday life by helping the muscle relax to promote a sense of calmness. Relaxation massage can prompt the release of endorphins in the brain which produce feelings of wellbeing. This style of massage can also help to reduce stress hormones in the body, such as adrenalin and cortisol which makes relaxation massage one of the best ways to physically relax the body and the mind.
A relaxation treatment can involve long smooth gliding strokes that are both rhythmic and flowing, and pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful.
Relaxation massage is not a deep tissue massage. It is not designed for working the deeper muscles of the body or designed for dealing with chronic pain or discomfort. The therapist will be gently gliding, kneading and rubbing the outer layers of the body tissue.
The treatment will cover a wide range of areas on the body including the back, neck, arms, hands, legs and feet. The client may also choose to have their face massaged, including the temples, forehead and sides of the face.
Relaxation massage may offer the following benefits:
- Some reduction in muscle tension including the relief of muscle tension headaches
- Improvements to any stress-related symptoms
- Reduction of fatigue and tiredness
- Reduction of acute or chronic stress, anxiety, and daily worries
- Increased circulation in the body
