A Relaxation Massage is ideal for reducing stress and tension and promoting a sense
of wellbeing. This treatment is all about calming the nerves, soothing the muscles
and providing a place and time for you to escape from the pressures of everyday life.
This treatment is not intended to relieve chronic pain conditions or deal with ailments,
although it will still bring relief for tight, knotty muscles and other aches and
pains as needed.
Space to relax
The massage environment is always important, but particularly so for a Relaxation
Massage. My calm tranquil treatment room, soft towels and fleeces, your preference
of relaxing music or peaceful quiet and silky oils or water-based lotions all contribute
towards enhancing the atmosphere and making this massage special.
How long should a relaxation massage be?
A Bodyworkz Relaxation Massage is a pampering 2-hour experience and a treatment I
always enjoy giving. This length of massage allows for a luxurious full body massage,
as well as extra time for specific areas of the body if required. For example, you
may want a really long back massage included, extra time spend on your legs or feet,
a long relaxing arm and hand massage, or extra time spent on your face and head.
A variety of techniques are used for this treatment, including many classic Swedish
massage strokes - long, slow, flowing effleurage movements, kneading, rolling and
comfortable pressures. This massage often has the effect of causing people to sink
into profound rest and sometimes a deep sleep as the massage progresses. At the end
of the treatment people rise from the massage couch peaceful and tranquil.
The positive feelings generated by Relaxation Massage can last for several days and
my clients have reported positive benefits such as improved sleep patterns, an increase
in energy and vitality, mood improvement, such as a reduction in depression or irritation,
and a sense of equilibrium.
