Which massage is best for relaxation?

5th July 2018

The term relaxation is often ambiguous. A spa like environment could often mean relaxation for some, while for others relaxation would mean working out muscle tension, stretching the muscles, and getting intense sensations that trigger the parasympathetic nervous system. However, some massages are more soothing than others and create a feeling of being wrapped in a cloud. You might consider the following types of massage:

  • Swedish massage: consist of long sweeping strokes (effleurage), muscle kneading and rolling (perissage), friction (deep pressure applied with the knuckles, thumb, or fingertips), rhythmic tapping (tapotement), and rocking and shaking movements (vibration).
  • Hot stone massage: body is massaged and weighed down with hot, smooth stones
  • Chair massage: the neck, shoulders, and back are massaged while sitting face forward in a chair. Clears the tension at the upper part of the body. Undressing or use of oils is not required.
