What to Expect from a Relaxation Massage
Massage for relaxation isn’t designed to be intense. Instead, our massage practitioners or therapists will use gentle massage techniques to put you in a state of rest and to relax your muscles slowly throughout the session. By the end, you’ll feel replenished, relaxed, and ready to take on the day
Swedish-style Massage to Help You Unwind
Our team uses Swedish-style massage. This is the most popular massage technique and is designed to help the entire body relax. The movements of Swedish massage warm the muscle tissue to help direct the blood to the heart, increase oxygen levels, assist in circulation, and improve flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage vs Relaxation Massage
A deep tissue massage targets deeper muscles and connective tissue. It primarily focuses on stretching your fascia and penetrating deep into tissues using targeted pressure. This is more intense than a relaxation massage that uses more sweeping, less severe movements.
While deep tissue massage is excellent for managing chronic pain, helping improve posture, or assisting in the healing process after injury of surgery, massage for relaxation is gentler. It targets muscles and the circulatory system to help increase blood flow and relax muscles. If you seek tension and stress relief throughout your body, a relaxation massage is exactly what you need!
Cupping therapy uses silicone cups to cause a suction, or lifting action over a targeted area. This un-gluing and separating of tissues and fascia, cupping can increase circulation, reduce swelling, release tight muscles, promote lymphatic drainage and muscle rejuvenation.
Aromatherapy Herbal Oil Massage
Pure essential oils blends are combined with your relaxation massage to ease tension in the mind and body. Each blend combines unique essential oils for their healing properties and chemistry. Choose from Muscle Mend, Headache, Arthritis, Rest Assured and 5 Minutes Peace.
