What is Relaxation Massage?

The therapist will use:

  • Long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle, and perhaps some rhythmic rocking from side to side.
  • Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful
  • A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you, not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying ailments.

What benefits might I receive?

When muscles are overworked, waste products such as lactic acid can accumulate in the muscle causing soreness, stiffness and even muscle spasm. Massage helps the body rid itself of toxins, improves circulation, boosts immune function and reduces muscular tension and helps the body to release endorphins, the body’s own repairing agents. A relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you oozing with a sense of wellbeing.

Relaxation massage improves your circulation, so your organs and skin get more oxygen; it moves fluid through your lymphatic system. It also encourages your body to digest its food, and get rid of its toxins. It will help you to sleep better. This massage will also help un-knot any muscles, soothe aches and sprains and encourage the skin to heal minor abrasions.
