Relaxation Massage

Why Massage?

Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. Many ancient peoples – including the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Indians – were convinced of the therapeutic properties of massage and used it to treat a variety of ailments. A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! Many live their stressful lives day to day without taking any time off just for them. Everyone deserves a well needed moment of relaxation and this is just the right technique for that. It will relax your mind and body, giving you a break from the stress of your life.

What to expect

When you experience relaxation massage, you can expect a treatment that involves: Long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing. Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful. A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you. One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system, confirming that relaxation is most important in maintaining your health and happiness.
