Relaxation Massage or Therapeutic Massage  focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life. It gives the client time to zone out and relax before facing the daily chaos again.


What to expect from a Relaxation Massage

  • Long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing

  • Pressure that is subtle but deeply relaxing, but not painfu

  • A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you as this is a therapeutic treatment and not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying ailments. However the client may feel relief from symptoms as their muscles relax gently

  • The use of essential oils to enhance both the environment and the effects of the massage  


The Benefits of Relaxation Massage

The benefits of a Relaxation Massage can last for several days after your treatment. Relaxation massage  can offer the following benefits: 

  • Lowering blood pressure – at least for a while

  • Improvements to peripheral circulation

  • Improvements to skin tone and appearance

  • Improvements to gastrointestinal motility (bowel movements will become more regular)

  • Some reduction in muscle tension including the relief of muscle tension headaches

  • Improvements to any stress-related symptoms. This can include providing a gentle boost to the immune system if you undergo regular treatments.
