Relaxation massage is essentially a gentle massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The primary
purpose will be to help you relax and the massage therapist will probably move at a slower pace
& use light pressure.
During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots
in the muscle tissue & the therapist won’t push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to
release. Sometimes people even fall asleep during a relaxation massage.
There are still substantial health benefits to a relaxation massage:
• calming the nervous system
• promoting a sense of well-being
• improving blood circulation
• stimulating the body’s lymphatic system, which carries away waste products
• improving immune system
