What is a relaxing massage?

The relaxing massage is a gentle massage of sedative passes and relaxed manipulations in order to lead the client to a state of nirvana where they can deeply disconnect from their daily tasks. To offer a good relaxing massage, it is essential to condition the environment, dim lighting, activate the olfactory bulb with pleasant and relaxing essences. (We will dedicate a section of this post to the most advisable essences for a good relaxing massage) The work area in which we will usually carry out this practice will be on a stretcher and with music appropriate for the purpose. All these elements are of vital importance but fundamentally the conductor of harmony is the key piece, the therapist. The professional who must perform this massage must be in a state of harmony and balance to transmit through their hands the state of calm and deep relaxation to the client. It is recommended that the client arrive a little earlier at the service destination to be able to enter the appropriate atmosphere before performing the service.


What should we know when requesting a relaxing massage?

The first and most important thing is the objective with which we ask it. This massage is indicated solely and exclusively to induce the client to deep relaxation.

It is not intended to treat specific ailments, however indirectly, these can be alleviated.
The goal is to live a relaxing experience that lasts over the days after the service. (In this post we have prepared all the benefits of relaxing massage, we will see it later)


How long should the relaxing massage last?

We will find this service in specialized centers usually in 25, 55 and 90 minutes. The objective of this massage as its name indicates is to relax, we will hardly achieve this purpose in a 25-minute massage, so when booking this massage we advise against the 25-minute massage but it will always be a client’s decision and obviously little better. than nothing. So if you are in a hurry for time it may be a good option. We will always recommend the relaxing massage of 55 and 90 minutes to live a full experience.


What is the origin of the relaxing massage?

It is very difficult to specify an exact date for the relaxing massage as such, since it was developed by different civilizations on different historical dates, but we can focus on the following approximations based on the data we have today. For the first time we can identify them in Egyptian papyrus writings the first reference to the world of massage around 1500 BC or in China in the ancient book of Nei Ching 430 BC. it was also fully integrated into Greek culture 510 BC. C. and the Roman civilization (753 BC) with the use of thermas. With which we can conclude that transmitting relaxation through the hands to another person is almost as old as the beginning of civilizations. But let’s not stop with this.


Since when is the relaxing massage constituted as we know it today?

It was the German Friedrich Hoffman (1708) who was deeply interested in massage and its techniques together with Nicolas Andry who endorsed the importance of it in blood circulation and skin color. But in the first book that we can find massage to treat problems such as constipation, it was written by Quellmaiz in 1749.


What was the first book of today where massage techniques appear?

This was the book of Tissot (1780) the first book where to be able to see and study maneuvers entirely on massages.
The popularization of relaxing massage already reached France in the 19th century where we can find passes and techniques very similar to those we use today.

What are the benefits of relaxing massage?

The benefits of relaxing massage go beyond offering the body and mind a deep state of well-being. Although this technique promotes relaxation as its main objective, it stimulates a series of positive actions in the body, ranging from improving blood circulation to reducing the typical discomfort of PMS. Did you know? There is much that a relaxing massage can do for you, your body and your health.
Benefits of relaxing massage that will surprise you

In addition to the obvious release of tension, which is why we often resort to this type of treatment, the benefits of relaxing massage are much deeper, we recommend them to give the body a deep dose of well-being.

These are some of its surprising advantages:

They help reduce back and head pain
The relaxing massage stimulates blood circulation, helps to relax the muscles and relieves the tension that accumulates in them. This benefit allows to relieve pain that is located in the back and in the head due to tension, in addition to combating body stiffness.

Decrease our stress levels
Among the benefits of relaxing massage, its power to offer a state of deep tranquility stands out thanks to the fact that it reduces the levels of the hormone cortisol in the body. Remember that this hormone is secreted in large quantities when the human body is subjected to a great load of stress. Therefore, nothing better than a relaxing massage to stop fatigue and anguish.

Reduce blood pressure and improve circulation
Massages activate the circulatory system, which allows the entire human body to receive more oxygen. By activating circulation, blood pressure is lowered and the inflammation of the extremities caused by vascular problems such as varicose veins is improved. As if that were not enough, we must remember that the skin is nourished by the blood composition, therefore, the better the blood circulates throughout the body, the better your skin will look. A more hydrated and healthy tissue is possible with a relaxing massage.

Fight anxiety and depression
It is proven, after a relaxing massage the person feels renewed inside and out. And it is that this therapy stimulates the secretion of the hormone serotonin, a substance responsible for keeping people’s mood in balance. Therefore, when you do a relaxing massage, you will not only come out happy, but you will fight the symptoms of anxiety almost instantly.

They favor the elimination of toxins
The body has different filters such as the kidneys, liver and lymph nodes to dispose of accumulated toxins in the body. The circulatory system is responsible for helping these filters transport toxins to be disposed of. Activating circulation through manual massage helps to detoxify the body more effectively, for this reason more and more people go to aesthetic centers with the aim of performing a lifatic drainage.

Decrease muscle tension and promote flexibility
Stress, worries, a sedentary life and sitting many hours a day cause muscle tension and pain. A relaxing massage is the best option to relieve these symptoms, prevent contractures and get moving without discomfort or complications. It is even proven that this type of therapy is very effective in reducing ailments caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome
The inflammation caused by the beginning of a new menstrual cycle improves considerably after a relaxing massage thanks to the activation of blood circulation. In addition, the increase in serotonin will help a lot for those women who have mood swings during these days of the month. Giving yourself a massage to be happy and free from pain is more than necessary.
