At Balanced Bodies we offer relaxation massage to help you unwind and deeply relax your body and mind. Relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes.
A relaxation massage is about having an enjoyable and blissful experience. Unlike remedial massage and deep tissue massage, there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue. And as the primary purpose of a relaxation massage is to help you relax, it is usually a pain-free experience.
What happens during a relaxation massage?
Your therapist will work with you and consult you throughout the treatment to ensure you are relaxed and having a pleasurable experience.
If any particular area is painful, simply inform the therapist and they will change technique or move to a different area of your body. A relaxation massage is not about pushing your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. Its aim is to help you unwind with a soothing treatment.
Pressure and pace of a relaxation massage
Our therapists will tailor the experience to your needs. If you want the pace to be slower or faster, simply let us know. If you need the pressure to be different‑—light, medium or firm—just talk to us before or during the treatment and we’ll happily adjust it for you.
You may even fall asleep!
Some of our clients at Balanced Bodies find our relaxation massage so relaxing that they even fall asleep. Come and experience how a relaxation massage can help your tension just float away.
