Relaxation Massage: a luxury massage
Relaxation massage is exactly what the name implies: a massage strictly for the purposes of rest and relaxation. This massage technique is not intended for therapeutic effects, or for treatment of chronic pain or discomfort.
A relaxation massage can be customized and tailored to your specific needs. The massage takes place in a quiet and comfortable environment with music and candlelights in the background.
It is a long and luxurious massage that uses all types of massage techniques, including gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle. Relaxation Massage is not a deep tissue massage and is intended for massaging the outer layers of the body tissue.
With a relaxation massage is a wide range of areas on the body such as the back massage, legs, arms and neck. It is a passive process whereby you will not be stretched or maneuvered in yoga-like positions, such as a Thai massage.

Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle style of massage to improve circulation, reduce muscle pain, and promote overall relaxation. It's about time to pamper yourself with a relaxing massage!
Pregnancy Massage - The benefits
Pregnancy massage, also known as pre-natal massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Pregnancy massage is especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back.
A pregnancy massage differs from traditional massage in a few different ways. First, we will take extra care to make sure your body gets the cushioning and support it needs.
When you’re lying on your back, there will be pillows underneath your knees and shoulders. If you’re far along in your pregnancy, you might be positioned in a semi-reclining position, where you’re looking at the wall instead of the ceiling. You can also have your back massaged during pregnancy by lying on your side, with pillows under your head and between your legs.
A pregnancy massage is very soothing and relaxing in style. Deep tissue work, abdominal kneading and certain acupressure points are avoided.
Pregnancy massage provides relaxation by relieving stress on joints. It eases neck and back pain, helps you to keep good posture and relaxes and provides flexibility to birthing muscles.
Pregnancy massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and the baby. It stimulates different glands in the body, which help to stabilize hormone levels, and relieves nervous tension throughout the body. And the nurturing touch during pregnancy massage promotes relaxation and provides emotional support. Post-Partum Pregnancy Massage is also good after giving birth. Postpartum pregnancy massage can help restore a mother's body to its pre-pregnancy condition. It helps to realign the body weight, and tones the over-stretched skin over the belly. As with all massage, it relieves muscle tension and stress from mothering duties!
