If you are looking for an effective way to relax, re-align, and rejuvenate, then you may want to consider massage. Massage can relax muscles, sooth your aches, and restore your body's balance. It rejuvenates and makes us better able to handle all the challenges that come with life. Our experienced, professional therapists believe that each client deserves a great revitalizing experience, and exceptional and customized care that addresses individual needs. These therapists know most of us have hectic lifestyles and they want to help relieve the tension associated with our daily stressors.
A relaxation massage is a rather straightforward session using classic Swedish massage techniques. The massage therapist will utilize techniques of applying light to medium pressure dependent upon the client’s preference. This type of massage will often take place at a day spa or resort center. The purpose of the massage is simply to help the client to relieve muscle tension and create an overall feeling of relaxation and euphoria. A therapeutic massage on the other hand is more thorough and is intended to not only provide relaxation and euphoria, but also apply advanced techniques to target and alleviate pain and chronic health issues. Therapeutic massages also provide great preventive care to patients.
