Massage Therapy in modern-day lifestyle is one of the most versatile, most effective, and most comforting forms of treatment available at R3 Spa. Everyone enjoys a good massage, and many of the benefits are pretty commonly understood. Massages are relaxing, for instance. They relieve structural issues in the body and can treat muscle imbalance.
But beyond these familiar benefits, massage therapy has a number of other positive impacts on a person’s wellness, too.
Massage has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, if you need or want a massage, you can choose from many massage therapy styles with a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used.
What follows is a list of some of the more popular massage therapy styles.
The most common type of massage at R3 Spa is Swedish Massage Therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with the movement of the joints. Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff “trouble spots” in your body. Our massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin.
During a Thai massage, our therapist uses his or her body to move the client into a variety of positions. This type of massage includes compression of muscles, mobilization of joints, and acupressure.
Hot Stone Massage:
For this kind of massage, our therapist places warmed stones on certain areas of the body, such as acupressure points. The stones may be used as massage tools or be temporarily left in place.
So, what is the wait all about? Open all your senses and let your body soothe into different massage therapy at R3 Spa.
