Relaxation massage uses long gliding strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles, sometimes combined with active and passive movements of the joints. This massage is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension. This smoother, more flowing massage detoxifies the body and is great for those just wanting to let go and relax. Sometimes called Swedish or Therapeutic massage, relaxation massage is the perfect introduction for those new to massage, and suitable for all ages.
