What types of massage are available?
The two main types of massage
There are many styles of massage. To keep things simple we divide the types of massage into two groups. Relaxation based massage and therapeutic massage.

It is arguable that all massage that is done well and with a positive intent has the potential to be therapeutic. That being said a therapeutic massage in this sense is more than a relaxation based massage but is usually less focused than a clinical massage. Therapeutic massages often involve the whole body being massaged.
Relaxation based massage
The clue is in the name. A relaxation massage is about providing a calming environment to promote a sense of physical and mental well being. It is a chance to catch your breath and de-stress.
Through taking some time for you it is possible to couter-balance the demands of life.
What are the benefits of having massage therapy?
The modern world seems to be filled with stresses and strains, not only on our bodies but also our minds. There is only so long anyone can go flat out before they burn-out and need to really take care of themselves.
For many people a massage is an essential part of a self-care routine. It would be great if we could remove the aspects from life that are tough but often that is not possible. Instead, recharging your batteries could be the best way to go. And what better way to do that than through massage?
