Different Types of massages

Posted in Wellness

Let's start by asking what do you expect from your massage?

Do you need it simply for enjoyment and relaxation, or would you like to take care of particular symptoms, such as those related to the spine, or get rid of lingering stress-related tensions? Maybe you've just started a weight loss regime and want to reinforce its effects outside the club's gym? Once you've decided on your goals, you're ready for the next step.

When choosing a massage, you should consider its intensity. How much pressure are you comfortable with? Answering this question is necessary – you are the leading expert on your own pain threshold.

Here are some suggestions

Aromatherapy massage
This unique massage is a top choice for those looking for deep relaxation as well as healing – thanks to the use of appropriate essential oils. The fragrance of a few drops of natural, unscented oil, creates a pleasant aura which can cure colds, headaches, lack of concentration, insomnia, fatigue and stress.


Classic massage
The basic massage of manual therapy techniques uses stroking, rubbing, squeezing, kneading, hitting, shaking, vibration and passive movements. All of these techniques work locally to improve your body's overall condition. Depending on the techniques used, classic massage can have a therapeutic, relaxing or stimulating effect.

Hot volcanic stone massage
