Pamper Yourself with a Massage
April 15 2019
Various cultures from around the world have utilized massage therapy in their healing practices throughout history. Today, we use many different types of massage therapy for a variety of health-related purposes. Here at Regina Webb Salon & Spa, we offer a full range of massage options to suit your needs. If you’re new to this type of treatment, we understand the options can be confusing. Here, we will highlight the differences to help you choose the best one for you.
Swedish. This is what most people visualize when they hear the word massage. The main goal of this type of massage is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of the blood flow towards the heart. Beyond relaxation, though, this type of massage is also beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility.
Hot Stone. Hot stone massage is a specialty treatment using smooth, heated stones as an extension of your therapist’s hands or used in specific places on the body. The heat is deeply relaxing and can warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply. This type of massage relieves muscle tension and pain, reduces stress and anxiety, and promotes relaxation and sleep.
Prenatal. A customized massage for the mother-to-be in her second or third trimester, prenatal massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and swelling.
Sports. Sports massage goes beyond promoting relaxation and pain relief. It can help improve performance and prevent injury - in addition to helping the body recover from injuries associated with physical activity. Sports can be repetitive, especially for runners, cyclists, racquet sports players, and weightlifters. This massage will help release muscle tension and promote tissue repair and muscle balance for a safer workout.
