Relaxation Massage 

 

Relaxation massage, also known as Therapeutic or Swedish massage, is a style of massage that aims to relax the client by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. It involves using oil on skin with a combination of flowing techniques. 

 

A lot of muscle tension is the result of daily stresses compounding over time. Relaxation massage aims to treat this not only with its calming style, but with a variety of massage techniques that soften and relax the tissues of the body as well as calming the mind. 

 

Relaxation massage works by using techniques such as effleurage, petrissage and tapotement to create a more flowing and calming massage experience. By working in the direction of blood flow, this style is a great way to increase circulation and remove waste products from the body.
