The Different Types of Relaxing Massage


Last week we explored the benefits of Neuromuscular Massage.  This week, I would like to share with you the types and benefits of relaxing massage. 

Here’s some terminology that is used when referring to various types of massage:

Acupressure – This is acupuncture performed without the use of needles. For the needle phobic – Pressure of the fingertips on the pressure points is used instead of needles.

Shiatsu – This is similar to acupressure, but instead of just the fingertips, the pressure can be applied using hands, knees, elbows or feet.

Reflexology – Massage using pressure points in the hands and feet.

Swedish Massage – This is the most popular method of relaxing massage.

Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of health care, dating back almost 4000 years.

It increases blood circulation, skin tone, and relieves tension. Health Benefits — Research shows that physical touch and massage can dramatically affect our nervous system, immune system, and hormones.

Massage therapy can slow the heart, relax the body, and increase alertness

Stress can be a factor in a variety of physical and emotional problems. Many stress symptoms are mild and can be managed by stress management techniques, including massage therapy. Discover for yourself the benefits of massage!

Love yourself today and schedule a massage.
