Relaxation Massage Therapy
Relaxation is a decrease of SNS (sympathetic Nervous System) and a stimulation of the PNS (Parasympathetic Nervous System). When stress prevails the sympathetic nervous system (Fight or Flight) is being overused while the opposing parasympathetic system is underused. Relaxation techniques can correct this imbalance.
Relaxation massage is a combination of Swedish massage and stretching techniques. It can be specific to one area or applied to full body. The pressure is light to deep and is determined by the Practitioner’s analysis of the client’s tissue response not the client’s request. Aromatherapy can be added to enhance a relaxation massage and have lasting effects on the nervous system to increase relaxation. Treatments are uniquely customized for each person’s needs. Other techniques can be enjoyed by the client at home or work to become daily destressors.
