Which is the best massage to relieve stress?
If you are looking for a way to relieve stress, a massage is one of the most enjoyable ways to let your daily trouble disappear. Even though the best way to reduce stress is to work fewer hours or avoid tense situations, sometimes we just don’t have the time or energy to deal with it all and that’s when a massage can do wonders!
Just think about it…
During times of high stress, you probably feel anxious or depressed, and even though you should rest it’s not easy to get some decent sleep. After a rocky night, there comes a harder day of trying to focus and get things done. And after a few weeks, you just become irritable and moody all the time. You should definitely change your habits, but first; take a deep breath, choose your ideal massage technique and get the energy you need for a lifestyle change.
Getting rid of stress: Which massage will do the trick?
Each massage has its own style, goal and methodology but they can all relieve stress, ease muscle tension and bring you to a place of tranquility.
It all depends on what type of pressure you like. It can be as simple as that – if you enjoy deep work, you should choose a deep tissue massage, and if you prefer a lighter touch, you should go with a Relaxation massage. The most important thing is to talk with your massage therapist and discuss the goal of the session and your personal preferences.
Deep tissue massage is the queen of calm
Deep tissue massage can help you realign deeper layers of muscle. Your therapist will combine firm pressure and slow strokes in order to relax muscles and connective tissue as well.
It might not be comfortable all the time, but there’s no “ouch pain” in deep tissue massage. Feel free to tell your therapist what kind of pressure you like – your pleasure is the priority.
Focus massage: If you know exactly what you want!
Let’s say you’re driving home from work. You have a tight schedule but you desperately need to get rid of that headache or stiffness. A Focus massage lasts only 30 minutes but it will work a treat!
Your therapist will use deep and targeted muscular and active release techniques to break through the knots in your shoulders, pamper your feet or to give you a relaxing scalp and head massage.
