Relaxation massage in Olympia is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish 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 and use light pressure.

During a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and 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, including calming the nervous system, promoting a sense of well-being, improving blood circulation, and stimulating the body's lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

Stress Relief Massage

The activities may not be always physical or mental, it can often be emotional, psychological or a mix of all of these. Stress has several neural-muscular-skeletal repercussions. Nerves are likely to be stressed which affect blood flow, muscles can get cramped or sore and there would be joint aches or tissue inflammation as a result of the above. In various cases, it has been noted in several studies that stress leads to headaches, neck pain, back pain, and also enhances any pain that a person may be suffering from. For instance, if you have a joint ache then any form of stress can elevate the pain.

A massage is a physical therapy that involves various techniques to primarily offer a calming effect in the body. There are therapeutic massage treatments and physiotherapies among various other types. A massage could use hydrotherapy, ultrasound therapies or may just involve acupuncture. A normal massage may also be simply done by hands using some oils or lotions known to have a soothing effect. A massage calms the nerves causing them to dilate to their natural form rather than being pinched or strained. This leads to better blood circulation. Better blood circulation is not only essential to carry oxygen to all parts of the body but also the nutrients that different organs and body parts need to function normally. Massage causes muscle stimulation and can either inhibit them or create tension as may be required for a specific person. Certain massage therapies use manipulation of the skeletal structures to lessen the pain. All such intricacies of a massage lower the stress levels.
