Going for a full body massage on a regular basis is one excellent way to help you fight off tensions. Full body massage stimulates the production of endorphins that promotes relaxation and drowsiness.

When you go for full body massage, your head to your toes and feet are massaged both front and back. A variety of strokes that includes kneading, pulling, wringing, hacking and gliding are used on various parts of the body.

If you are already ill or suffering from constant fatigue or pain, then full body massage can play a big part in your treatment. A full body massage helps to improve blood circulation and blood becomes more easily transportable to the vital organs in your body. This is vital for smooth functioning of your internal body parts. In addition, when blood is supplied to areas that have been injured before, repair and renewal of cells and tissues take place more easily. Combined with conventional medicine and other therapies, repeat sessions of full body massage can do much to accelerate your recovery.

2.Swedish body massage

which your masseuse kneads using long strokes, deep circular movements and tapping — is known for its relaxing effect, but rather than just being a surface-level technique for blissing you out, it also has stress-busting, immune-boosting properties. Even better, studies from California University prove it makes a difference to your health from the very first session. Fiffig, right? (Oh, that’s Swedish for ‘clever’.)

‘If you’re looking for a relaxing body massage session you’ll really feel a change after, Swedish back massage is what you want,’ says masseuse Robert. ‘The long strokes, shorter kneading and a slightly firmer technique called cross fibre friction your therapist will use will all combine to release muscular tension and decrease inflammation,’ he says. ‘Not only is Swedish massage really effective, it’s super relaxing.’

And the good news is, you’re not limited to a salon to embrace the Scandi trend. Treat yourself to a little massage at home or even on the way to work (plinkety music optional), by pressing your four fingers down onto your skin (this works on any part of the body, says Rob, but your upper arm may be easiest at first) and forming a cupping shape around the muscle. Push your thumb into the cupped muscle, and knead from your fingers into your palm, then your thumb, in a continuous motion.

If being your own masseuse sounds too much like hard work, book a 60-minute session. According to a 2010 study, just three quarters hour of Swedish body massage can significantly decrease your levels of cortisol (that pesky stress hormone) and increase white blood cells, the immune system heroes that fight colds and flu.

3.Balinese massage

Balinese massage is a full-body, deep-tissue, holistic treatment. Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure, reflexology, and aromatherapy to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and “qi” (energy) around your body, and bring a sense of wellbeing, calm and deep relaxation. Balinese massage uses a variety of techniques including skin rolling, kneading and stroking, and pressure-point stimulation, combined with the aromas of essential oils.

Balinese massage is a good treatment to choose if you want to experience a variety of massage techniques, need some help to relax, or if you’re feeling a bit low. A relaxation massage with attitude, this treatment will help you feel calm, but it will boost your circulation and target knotted tissue to address physical issues as well.

What to expect from a Balinese massage.

Balinese massage is usually performed on a massage couch, but can also be performed on a floor mattress. Aromatherapy forms an important part of a Balinese massage. The use of scented massage oil can be very therapeutic, with the aroma of the essential oils soothing your mind. The massage oil also helps massage strokes become fluid and free of friction, which makes for a more comfortable treatment.

Expect the therapist to use quite deep pressure during the massage, in order to work on deep, knotted tissue and muscle damage. Your therapist will also use long, gentle strokes and kneading to relieve tension and improve circulation in the muscles closer to the surface of the skin. Sessions usually last about an hour.

You will feel all kinds of wonderful after a Balinese massage: relaxed, refreshed, re-energised. You will probably smell fantastic after all those essential oils, too. If you have the chance to lie down afterwards, take it. Soak in the wonderful feelings of relaxation and realignment for as long as you can.

What is Balinese massage good for?

Balinese massage techniques work to soothe damaged tissue, and relieve strained muscles and joint pain. The boost to your circulation will help reduce stress and rebalance your body, and the aromatic oils can also boost your mood. As this massage targets deeper layers of muscle, and boosts circulation, Balinese massage is useful for sports injuries.

As with all spa treatments, you should tell your therapist if you have any medical conditions or are taking medication.

Features

Couples massages are often provided at hotels, spas or massage practices. A larger room equipped with two massage beds provides the setting for the massage session. In establishments where couples massages are geared towards romantic partners, dim lighting, candles or a fireplace may accentuate the atmosphere. During a couples massage, one massage therapist is assigned to each individual so that massages can be provided simultaneously.

Effects

You and your partner may engage in a massage therapy session together in order to help each other feel more comfortable experiencing a massage; this is especially true if your partner is attending his first massage therapy session and will feel more at ease with you there. Couples massage can also be used as a way for you and a romantic partner, loved one or friend, to spend quality time together and become closer in your relationship.

Types

For a couples session, massage therapy is usually intended for relaxation purposes rather than the healing of an injury. Swedish massage, the most common form of massage according to the American Massage Therapy Association, is often used in couples massage for its relaxing effects. Healing Lifestyles reports that less traditional forms of massage such as water shiatsu, or “watsu” can be used in couples sessions. This type of massage therapy is performed with the use of water jets in a shallow tub or pool.

Benefits

There are a number of physical effects associated with massage therapy from which you and your loved one can benefit during your session. Massage Envy reports that scientific research supports the connection between massage therapy and short recovery periods for a variety of medical conditions. Among the conditions that may be eased due to massage therapy are musculo-skeletal disorders, fibromyalgia, insomnia, asthma, arthritis and depression. Massage therapy has also been shown to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system.

Considerations

Seek out a licensed massage therapist for your couples session. The AMTA offers a free online database and toll-free phone number which lists the licensed massage therapists in a particular geographic area. Using a massage therapist who is licensed and complies with state or local regulations ensures that you will receive a professional, beneficial experience. If you plan to receive a specific type of massage, such as water shiatsu, inquire with the therapist about her specific training in that technique.
