Relaxation Massage-1800

Relaxation Focused Massage

Many recent studies have cited stress as the leading cause of increased pain perception. Between traffic jams, workplace politics and hectic home schedules we all are running around chasing something. Taking a “time out” to breathe and re-energize can facilitate increased healing, decreased pain and an overall boost in the enjoyment of life. Relaxation focused massage therapy focuses on long, healing strokes with a slow rhythm to promote increased circulation with a decreased heart rate.

Patients suffering from anxiety, stress and sleep disturbance can particularly benefit from this treatment.
