Relaxation massage, also known as Swedish massage, is mainly focussed on alleviating stress, leaving you with a wonderful sense of relaxation and calm. Whilst still tailored to your individual needs and preferences, relaxation massage is usually a soothing experience, and you are invited to zone out and drift off while your therapist eases tension with Swedish techniques such as gliding or wringing, gentle stretching, and mobilisations.

The benefits of relaxation massage often include improved sleep, relief from tension headaches, and the easing of anxiety and depression symptoms. Booking a relaxation massage before a stressful event can calm the mind and improve focus, and many of our clients book this treatment during intense periods of work or study as an added support.

Whilst relaxation massage is often thought of as being a more 'gentle' treatment, this certainly does not have to be the case, and your therapist can adjust the pressure to be as light or firm as you wish.

Soothing touches such as candles, a heated massage table and relaxing essential oils can all be part of the experience, so leave your worries at the door and let yourself by pampered by one of our expert therapists.
