A Relaxation Massage is one of the most pleasant experiences that anyone can have. Massage is recognised as one of the best ways to relieve the stresses and strains of modern life. Many health benefits and relief of chronic pain can also be achieved.
What is relaxation massage?
The clue is in the title! Our skilled therapists will provide a full body massage with soothing music (client preference – you are welcome to bring your own) and soft lighting. Our sole aim is to relax you and provide a sense of well-being. Allow yourself some time on either side of the massage so you do not need to rush.
Keheren therapy’s relaxations are all about freeing you from the stresses of your daily life. We’re not looking for any underlying ailments, and so our relaxation massages are slower and use lighter pressure than our deep tissue massages. After one, you’ll leave us feeling soothed and relaxed in body and mind, and with a profound sense of physical and mental well-being.
One of the main stress hormones in our bodies is Cortisol. Many of us experience stress in life through our work, finances, family, ill health to name just a few. Research has shown that massage can lower Cortisol levels in our blood stream
During your massage, you can chat to your therapist or simply listen to your own thoughts. Clients often fall asleep when they’re with us – it really is that relaxing! It’s your time to do whatever you need to shake off your cares and pamper yourself, and it’s our pleasure to make it happen for you.
Our clients love their relaxation massages, and we’re so pleased that they come back to see us again and again. Why not join them, and find out for yourself just how satisfying they can be?
Relaxation and Hydrotherm
You will begin to relax from the moment you lie down…. Our warm water filled Hydrotherm cushions allow an uninterrupted full body massage, no face holes, no turning over.
Hydrotherm massage provides the perfect opportunity to rest and allow your mind to drift away. We use the same techniques as traditional massage therapists (such as Swedish massage) whilst your body is supported by our warm water bed. Yet because our therapists work using an upwards pressure between you and the waterbed you won’t need to turn over half way through!
What to expect during your relaxation treatment
As well as the benefits of a warm water bed and soothing music we can also add oils that are perfect for relaxation to our base oils. Essential oils such as Cypress, Peppermint, Marjoram, Basil, Grapefruit, and Lavender are perfect to aid in relaxation. Don’t worry we will make sure its an oil thats safe to use and a scent you like first!
At Keheren Therapy we acknowledge that everyone is different and therefore the massage techniques we use for each individual are too. As a rule relaxation massages are soft and soothing using rubbing and kneading techniques to help muscles relax.
What to expect with regular treatments
- improved sleep
- better rest and recovery
- improved resilience to lifes stresses
- A sense of calm
