What is Relaxation Massage?

A Relaxation Massage is a massage where the therapist uses long, gentle strokes that are applied in a rhythmic and flowing way. Usually areas like your head, hands and feet become the focus of the massage because they can sense even the lightest touches.

What are the benefits of a Relaxation Massage?

The benefits of a relaxation massage is far more than just feeling relaxed, it also help to:

  • Increase your blood flow and circulation, leaving you feeling lighter
  • Move lymph fluid around your body to reduce swelling and inflammation
  • Remove waste products from your muscles to detoxify your body
  • De-sensitises your central nervous system, reducing pain and discomfort
  • Activates your parasympathetic nervous system which decreases your stress and anxiety

 

What happens during a Relaxation massage?

During a relaxation massage you will experience pure relaxation, a reduction in mental tension and increase your sense of vitality. Because our therapists are highly skilled many people have out of body experiences and feel like they’re floating on air as they walk out. 

You’ll hear gentle rhythmic music and be warm and cosy in the treatment rooms. They have been carefully designed to be as comfortable as possible. By the end of the treatment you’ll feel like sleeping there if you haven’t already fallen asleep during the treatment!

To take your massage to the next level we can use deep heat which warms your muscles or a magnesium blend which relaxes your muscles. Please add a comment when you book online for this special request.
