Stress. It’s not something we enjoy, and the effect it has on us is great. Stiff necks. Sore backs. Tight muscles in the arms and hands. It's not that stress is necessarily a bad thing, but how we handle it.

 

Sometimes we just need to relax and enjoy the moment. With a Relaxation Massage at Akossage, your tension will melt away. Sometimes the feeling is related to melting butter. As your therapist kneads your muscles, toxins and tension are flushed and your physical state begins to change.

 

While you are lying on the table, you will begin to drift into a state of leisure and repose. Your work and worries will begin to shrink mentally in importance and you will realize how beneficial the pampering of oneself can be.

 

Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax.  The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure.

 

 

Shiatsu Massage, also known as relaxation massage, is a gentle kneading of your muscles for the purpose of helping you drift into oblivion. Sleep returns and your rest becomes healing and sure.There is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or "knots" in the muscle tissue, which can be uncomfortable and cause some people tense up against the pressure. 

 

In a relaxation massage, the therapist won't push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. You might even fall asleep!  It's a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down. 

Relaxation massage is also good for someone who get massage as a special treat once a year.  It's not realistic to expect that you can get rid of all your knots in one massage.  But to drift into a deeply relaxed state in fifty minutes -- that's doable!

 

There are substantial health benefits to a relaxation massage.  Gentle massage stimulates sensory nerve endings in the skin, which transmit messages through the nervous system and cause the brain to release endorphins.

 

These are the body's natural painkillers, feel-good chemicals that create a sense of well-being.

 

Massage further aids relaxation by stimulating the body's parasympathetic nervous system, sometimes called the "rest and digest system."  Blood pressure decreases, heart rate slows, and digestive activity increases. Relaxation massage also increase blood circulation and stimulates the body's lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

 

Focus on your breathing, or on every movement of the therapists' hand.  Sometimes when you pay close attention, it becomes a form of meditation for both you and the therapist, and you get a more mindful treatment.

 

Either way, you will feel healing and calmness.
