Hands on Healing
With a relaxation massage, relaxing is the only aim. For this reason it is one of the most complete indulgent massages you can have. A relaxation massage is usually a full body massage involving soft music, soft lighting and oils. You will have a long luxurious massage which will use all kinds of techniques including long strokes, gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle. This is the massage to choose if you just want to chill out and be pampered and spoiled.
A good relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you oozing with a sense of wellbeing. Relaxation massage chieves this because of the general benefits of massage: it improves your circullation, so your organs and skin get more oxygen; it moves fluid through your lymphatic system. A relaxation massage encourages your body to digest its food and get rid of its toxins. It will help you sleep better. As massage will also help un knot any muscles, soothe aches and sprains and encourage the skin to heal minor abrasions.
