Relaxation massage is all about relaxing. It focuses on giving you time to recover from the stresses of daily life. When you experience relaxation massage, you can expect a treatment that involves:
Hot/Cold Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy:
Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy centers in the body. The stones may also be used to apply gentle pressure. The warmth is comforting. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage.
Cold Stone Therapy:
This method is new to the stone massage industry, because of hot method being widely used. The cold method is by placing the stone in the refrigerator or freezer depending upon when treatment will be done. Once the stone is at the correct temperature, it is placed on the correct pressure point for accurate results. When the cold stones are used the client will fall into a deep relaxation state. This thearpy gets even better results when used with hot stone therapy.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. We use slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
