A relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage. It reduces muscle tension, improves circulation and encourages a feeling of relaxation. Therefore, a relaxation massage is a wonderful way to manage your response to stress as it will reduce tension in your muscular system as well as soothe your sympathetic nervous system. My slow and gentle relaxation massage will leave you feeling nurtured, relaxed and in a state of wellbeing.
