Everyone knows what Massage is. It is a procedure carried out using hands, elbows, knees, fingers and massaging devices to manipulate the tissues in the body and distress them from pain and tiredness. There are various forms of massage which can be applied with or without professional help, but it is always better to get the massage done from a professional only due to their expertise in that field.
The Massage Therapist
is a trained professional, who works on the body to calm the pain and stress in
tissues and muscles by applying specific techniques. A Massage Therapist is experienced in carrying out various kinds of
massages depending upon the stress level and other requirements. The way they
carry out massage in an extraordinarily calm and peaceful environment with the
touch of their hands by pressing the essential pressure points to comfort the
body is just heavenly.
There are different sorts of massage settings which are used
during a massage session such as massage bed, massage chair or a mat/floor,
etc. Nowadays a distinct variety of massage oils such as mint, orange, lavender
and tea tree, etc. are used which are primarily associated with a particular
type of massaging requirement. Not just this! Many popular massage centers have
introduced concepts like water massage and sauna massage to give that extra
edge to your massaging experience.
What’s impressive to know is that these massage techniques and
tricks are not something developed lately; instead, they used since ancient
times. So, let us have a look at some of the forms of massage.
Relaxation massage is also known as Swedish massage. It is carried out using
rhythmic and longer strokes with palms of the hands. The amount of pressure
applied is very generous that would not feel pain. This massage is mainly done
to relax and soothe the body muscles but not to distress from pain and other
conditions. In Relaxation massage, the Massage
Therapist uses essential aromatic oils along with a combination of warm
and calming music.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue massage follows the same procedure as Relaxation massage. The only
difference is that in Deep Tissue
massage the focus lies on relieving body pain by targeting on muscles,
tissues and tendons, etc.
Prenatal massage is specially designed for pregnant ladies to relieve them from
stress, cramps, stiffness, headache and backache, etc. This massage helps in
bringing nervous tension and anxiety down; that is caused due to hormonal
change. Besides, this massage therapy promotes good sleep and helps in
increasing blood circulation.
Massage is something liked by almost everyone. The selectively
designed techniques and procedures not only help in relieving pains but also
work to relax and calm the mind and soul. There is an altogether different
experience of getting the massage done, and this incredible experience only
grows when the massage is carried out in a defined and targeting manned by a
professional Massage Therapist.
