With that in mind, here is a brief rundown of some of the most popular types of massage, and the specific benefits that they provide.
- This is a gentle full body massage that is perfect for people who are new to massage and just have a lot of overall tension that they want to release in their body. If you are sensitive to the touch then a Swedish massage might be the best starting point for you.
Hot Stone Massage
- Hot stone massage works by placing heated stones on different pressure point areas of your body to help relieve stress and muscle tension. It helps to prompt relaxation and can do wonder with alleviating pain that wasn’t going away through other massage types.
- This is the kind of massage that is ideal for somebody who also wants an emotional form of healing along with the physical. Essential oils are used to evoke certain emotions and have certain sensory impacts along with the gentle form of massage.
