Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscular tension, plus improves circulation and range of movement. This is the style of massage you’ll find performed at day spas. Your therapist will aim to relax, revive and rejuvenate you at a massage depth that does not cause discomfort.

While relaxation massage is wonderful for you, it is less effective than the deeper styles for changing soft tissue tension. We normally recommend deeper styles when you are suffering pain and leave relaxation for when you just want to … relax!
