Find the right kind of massage for you

Still haven’t find the right massage for you? Or you may have not yet looked for more kinds? This time, you wouldn’t have to go to every massage parlor you know and try on every type. Here is some of the most popular massages that may soothe your tired body.

Some of you may be familiar with Shiatsu and Swedish massage. These two are the common massages offered in spas. But the aromatherapy massage will also be a great choice for those who want to relax, energize, reduce stress, and balance themselves. Scented oils are available to give you all these. The most common is lavender.

If you don’t want oils on your body, heated, smooth stones will be applied for a hot stone massage. Certain points in your body are placed with these hot stones to warm and loosen tight muscles and energy centers. This is good for those who have strained muscles and prefer a lighter massage.

But if you prefer a massage that targets the deeper layers of muscles and tissues, the deep tissue massage will be good for you. The therapist applies slower strokes or friction techniques across every grain in your muscle.

Simple massages can also be a good choice like reflexology. Some may see it as a simple foot massage, but it actually works for the rest of the body. Certain point on the foot corresponds to organs and systems in the body. So you are actually relaxing your feet while also targeting other parts of your body. It works best when you have been standing on your feet whole day.
