The most popular massages explained
A lot of people love a good massage, but there are so many different types that most of us have a hard time choosing. A brief summary of the most popular:
1) Swedish massage
It is the most common type of massage. Long, gentle movements are combined with gentle kneading and circular movements on the skin. It is applied to the skin and the massage oil is used. This form of massage is very gentle and relaxing, a perfect introduction to massage. Massage Center in International City
2) Aromatic massage
Also known as aromatherapy. To reduce stress, the therapist performs Swedish massage but adds essential oils to the massage oil. These essential oils have a healing power.
3) Hot stone massage
Soft and hot stones are placed on some parts of the body. It warms up the muscles and relaxes them. Once your body is used to the heat of the stones, the therapist will slide them over your body. This type of gentle massage will rebalance your body's energy and is perfect for tense or stressed people.
4) Californian massage
It is probably the gentlest massage of all. It is an extremely light and gentle oil massage where long and gentle movements are combined with a little kneading. This massage is extremely calming and stimulates all of your senses.
This Japanese massage technique uses the fingers to exert pressure on certain acupressure points on the meridians (= energy circulates in our body). By pressing on these points, the therapist stimulates the flow of energy and restores balance in our body. This massage is relaxing, but strong, although afterwards there is no pain.
6) Thai massage
This massage also uses the energy flows in the body. This happens through light pressure on specific points and through stretching. The therapist will twist and turn your body in all directions, it is actually a passive type of yoga. Although this massage reduces stress and increases flexibility, afterwards you will feel more energetic than relaxed. Massage in Media City
7) foot reflexology
Foot reflexology focuses on the feet, but it's more than just a foot massage. The masseur will apply pressure to certain points of the feet related to certain organs or other parts of the body. It is a very relaxing form of massage, ideal for people who have to stand a lot or have tired feet.
