Massage therapy comes in various forms, all of which have different benefits. Relaxation massage is one of the more gentle versions and provides a mental and physical release. Generating a sense of deep relaxation, this massage form also increases circulation throughout the focus area and relieves muscular tension by using several massage techniques.
Relaxation Massage Techniques & Benefits
Dating back thousands of years as a therapeutic treatment, massage has historically been used as a prevalent treatment to heal and prevent injuries and illnesses. Relaxation massage has more general physical benefits in the form of loosening up the body, promoting blood flow throughout the body and helping to give the immune system a boost by stimulating lymphatics. At Cairnhill Physiotherapy, our massage therapists also perform relaxation massage to benefit your mental and emotional health, helping with anxiety and stress.
Modern ways of life don’t offer us much time to truly unwind and relax, despite the need to. Relaxation can reduce stress as well as tightness and tension in the body. Relaxation massage is often used as part of a holistic treatment plan. The techniques used include effleurage, petrissage, kneading, cupping and rolling. Add relaxation massage to improve your well-being.
