Relaxation Massage

Relaxation therapy is an effective technique to control stress and anxiety naturally. Relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The primary purpose will be to help you relax, and your massage therapist will probably move at a slower pace and use light pressure.

Relaxation therapy is a process that focuses on using a combination of breathing and muscle relaxation in order to deal with stress. The use of various techniques within this process can be extremely beneficial when dealing with daily stress or working through unanticipated situations that produce a great deal of physical and emotional tension.

How does relaxation therapy work?

During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and the therapist won’t push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. Sometimes people even fall asleep during a relaxation massage.

What is relaxation therapy used for?

There are still substantial health benefits to a relaxation massage, 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.
