Relaxation massage is a type of massage therapy that helps you relax and unwind. It involves using longer, smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on the topmost layers of your muscles.
The goal of relaxation massage is to promote a state of calmness and relaxation by reducing muscle tension, improving blood circulation, and reducing stress and anxiety.
It can also help improve and promote better sleep quality and promote a sense of overall well-being. In addition to the physical benefits, relaxation massage can also help improve your mental and emotional well-being.
At Awaken Healing + Massage, we use an intuitive approach to optimize your massage experience. Relaxation massage can include hot bamboo, hot stones, essential oils, hot towels, Reiki or even sound healing instruments to help you drop into a theta brain wave state.
This is where we can work with your brain to create deep relaxation utilizing the mind body connection to create inner peace.
Our goal is to create balance and connection to the parasympathetic mode of your nervous system, also known as the rest and restore mode. This is where your body’s wisdom is the healer and your massage therapist is the space holder gently guiding you into the calm state of peace and bliss.
We understand that everyone's needs are unique, which is why we offer a personalized approach to our relaxation massage services. Whether you prefer a soft touch or a firmer pressure, your massage therapise will work with you to customize your massage to your liking.
