Relaxation massage is a type of gentle Swedish massage which makes use of gliding and smooth strokes for you to enjoy utmost relaxation. Our massage therapist is going to use lighter pressure and move at slower pace. With our relaxation massage in Footscray, there will be lesser focus on working out any chronic underlying tensions on the muscles, or the knots or adhesions and muscle restrictions in your muscle tissue. This is because deep tissue work could be a bit uncomfortable, and during your relaxation massage, you simply want to feel good and drift away to oblivion.
During your relaxation massage, our therapist will never push you to your limits just so you can get your muscles to release. In fact, you could even find yourself falling into a deep slumber during your relaxation massage.
This is a great choice for a person who will be getting a massage for the very first time, or a person who simply wants to bring down their stress level. Relaxation massage is great as well for a person who gets a massage as a special treat once every year. It is not realistic to assume that you can eliminate all of those knots in just a single massage. However, to drift to an extremely relaxed state in just 50 minutes, this is perfectly doable and possible!
Relaxation Massage and Its Benefits to Your Health
Relaxation massage is also associated to a substantial array of health benefits. Gentle massage can stimulate the skin’s sensory nerve endings that transmit messages to the nervous system and stimulate the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins are the natural painkillers and feel good chemicals of the body that make you enjoy a sense of overall wellbeing.
Relaxation massage in Footscray can also aid relaxation through stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system of the body, or the so-called rest and digest system. Your heart rate will slow down, blood pressure will decrease, and there will be an increased digestive activity during your relaxation massage.
Finally, relaxation massage can also increase circulation of blood and stimulate the lymphatic system of the body that is responsible for carrying away unwanted waste products.
How to Make the Most Out of Your Relaxation Massage in Footscray
There are a few things that you can do for your massage session to be more relaxing. The first, and most important tip, is to make sure that you arrive at the spa well ahead of your scheduled appointment. When the spa has amenities which can help you feel relaxed, such as saunas, steam room or hot tubs, don’t forget to take advantage of these. Ensure that you have enough time taking a shower. Indulge in the coziness of your white robe, and bring something you can read while waiting in the relaxation lounge.If you happen to be someone who loves to talk, you might want to think twice about this during your relaxation massage. This will only keep your mind active that can inhibit your relaxation response. What you should do instead is to focus more on your breathing or the hand movements of your therapist. There are times when paying close attention in itself is also a form of meditation not only for you but also for your therapist, and this gives you a more mindful treatment.
