Relaxation Massage

 

Indulgent and soothing, relaxation massage may not provide therapeutic treatment, but the psychological benefits of the deep relaxation it provides are equally beneficial to body, mind and spirit.  Intended to relax tense muscles and ease stress, relaxation massage is the perfect antidote to workweek stress and a wonderful way to unwind.

Relaxation massage is typically performed in a temperature-controlled room with a soothing ambiance, delicate lighting and relaxing music playing in the background.  The client lies comfortably on a massage table, undressed, but adequately draped with a large sheet.  Usually performed in a salon environment, relaxation massage is also popular at resorts and hotels, and many offer spa services like relaxation massage in private cabanas for the ultimate luxurious treat.

Relaxation massage is entirely customizable.  The massage therapist will tailor the massage to the needs and preferences of the client and increase or decrease pressure accordingly.  Gentle and soothing, relaxation massage involves rubbing and kneading of the upper tissue layers, inducing deep relaxation that can often lull clients to sleep.  Relaxation massage focuses on the neck muscles and shoulders, where much tension is held, as well as the muscles of the back, legs and feet for head-to-toe soothing.  Fragrant oil aromatherapy is often combined with relaxation massage for a holistic and nurturing sensory experience.

Following a relaxation massage, clients should feel relaxed, pampered and recharged.  In the hours following a relaxation massage, clients are encouraged to drink plenty of water to help flush toxins and to rehydrate the body.
