Ever have one of those days were you just need to relax but can not? Just to much chaos happening around you? Need some time just for you? Feel like you are about to explode? Stressed from a long trip? Or how about having to deal with the screaming 2 year old at home all day? These are all perfect examples of when you are in need of a good Relaxation Massage Therapy session.
What is Relaxation Massage Therapy you may ask. Well it is a massage that's soul purpose is to relax and destress you and your body. It will loosen up your mind and body. This type of massage therapy is perfect for those long hard work weeks or simply if you feel like treating yourself to some much needed TLC.
The Relaxation Massage Therapy session typically consists of long, flowing strokes, kneading and some gentle manipulations of the muscles, preformed in your choice of pressure. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace when giving this style of massage therapy. This type of massage session is a pain free way to relax both your mind and body.
There is typically less of a focus on working out the serious adhesions (knots) in the muscle tissue in a Relaxation Massage, because when your massage therapist starts working out the knots it can become uncomfortable and sometimes even painful. In massage for relaxation, the massage therapist will not push your pain tolerance to get a muscle to release, you may even fall asleep. It's a good type of massage for you if you have never had a massage before or just want to bring your stress level down. They are also perfect if you are the type of person with a very low pain tolerance or if you only treat yourself to a massage once a year. It is unrealistic to think you can get all the knots out in just one session so if you are one of these people a massage for relaxation is your best choice. So just lay down, get comfortable, relax and enjoy, let the massage therapist make all your thoughts disappear.
