Relaxation Massage for Stress Reduction
With all the stress encountered in daily life, sometimes all you want is to be gently pampered and soothed. A relaxation massage is just the thing to bring you some much needed down time!
Long, flowing, and smooth strokes gently lull you into a state of relaxed bliss. Swedish massage strokes are combined to give you a thorough but gentle release from built up stress in your body and mind. Emma believes in an integrative approach to massage and will work on your trouble spots while still maintaining a relaxing flow. Talking is optional! Being quiet and focusing on your body is the best way to rejuvenate before you return to life’s many demands.
A relaxation massage still has the benefits of increased circulation and blood flow to tightened areas, release of the “feel good” hormone serotonin, and an overall feeling of well-being and relaxation without the discomfort of a more aggressive deep tissue massage or sports massage. Relaxation massage is also the basis of prenatal massage for moms-to-be.
Be sure to discuss with Emma your goals for the session to make sure a relaxation massage is best for you!
