A relaxation massage is a whole-body treatment that uses pressure, oils, and aromatherapy to relieve stress and help you relax.
What is a relaxation massage?
A standard massage can be used for many things, pain relief, reducing inflammation and much more. Although sometimes there is a small window of recovery following the massage, and a little discomfort during, the result is always worth it.
However, a relaxation massage is a massage that avoids painful areas and works gently on deep muscles, releasing endorphins without causing discomfort.
What are the benefits?
Massages that are used to relieve pain and enhance recovery of the body often involve the use of specialist equipment, such as foam rollers and a Theragun, a relaxation massage usually makes use of some soft music and aromatherapy on the massage therapists’ hands.
Reduced muscle tension
Massages are great for reducing muscle tension throughout your body. If you’re feeling sore from overexerting yourself or if your muscles have just been tense for days on end, this is one of the first benefits of a relaxation massage you’ll notice.
Eases muscle pain
A lot of people who get massages report that they feel less sore afterwards—which makes sense when you think about how much work goes into relieving tension in your muscles. Massages also help reduce inflammation in injured areas by releasing endorphins and serotonin. These chemicals both relieve pain and promote healing.
Alleviates anxiety and depression
It’s no secret that being stressed out can wreak havoc on your mental health—but did you know that massage can help alleviate these symptoms? Massages are known to stimulate endorphins
If you’re looking for an effective way to reduce muscle tension, ease muscle pain, alleviate anxiety and depression, improve sleep quality… or just want a little pick-me-up before or after work… then we highly recommend trying a relaxation massage.
The benefits we receive from a relaxation massage are myriad. Overall, an average person feels more relaxed, their stress levels lower and the effect lasts for days after the massage. There is not much research to show why this happens exactly, but it is thought that the deep pressure allows better circulation throughout the body, including to the brain so that people feel more alert, and it also encourages serotonin production.
We offer a variety of specialist massages that can be tailored to the individual, we also offer a mobile massage service, in which we travel to your home for the massage, perfect for those who work at home!
