Massages are a great way to overcome mental and physical health problems without using medications that have side effects. Before visiting a medical spa that offers massages, make sure to learn more about the different types. There are numerous massage varieties, and each one offers an assortment of benefits.
Swedish massages are extremely popular because this therapy is performed using long gliding motions. A therapist will stroke your body in the direction that your blood is flowing. This is traditionally a full-body type of massage that requires reclining on the front or back of your body. You will recline on a padded table, and you will have a clean modesty cotton sheet over you. As the therapist massages each area of your body, the modesty sheet is moved so that the expert can reach your leg, abdomen, back, or arm.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massages are a modern type of spa treatment that uses special oval or flat stones that are heated. The stones are warmed and sterilized between uses so that the therapist can place the items on your back, neck, or other areas of your body. In addition to having the warm stones resting on your skin, the therapist can massage your body with an assortment of techniques. The warmth from the heated stones can help to reduce the discomfort from conditions such as arthritis. You can request aromatherapy with scented candles or essential oils during a stone massage.
Reflexology is an ancient form of massage that is performed on the soles of your feet. A therapist uses a special chart that shows how each area on the bottom of your feet corresponds to a particular organ or other part of your body. If you have an ailment in another area of your body, then you should inform the therapist. The massage therapist will use special massaging techniques on certain areas of the soles of your feet to eliminate nausea or headaches.
