Relaxation Massage uses smooth and long strokes. The primary purpose will be to help you relax, calm your nervous system, relieve stress and promote a sense of well-being.
The RMT will not work at your pain limit in order to release tension in the body, but rather provide soothing techniques to calm your nervous system down and promote the para-sympathetic system to take over. During a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or “knots” in the muscle tissue. Some people go into such a deep state of relaxation that they even fall asleep.
A Relaxation Massage has substantial health benefits: improving blood circulation and stimulating the body’s lymphatic system (which carries away waste products), helps with insomnia, promotes clarity of mind, emotional balance, reduces muscular tension and decreases overall stress levels.
