There is not a single person alive who at one point didn’t feel a need to relax. There are many ways to do it, but a good massage is one of the best solutions. There are various different styles and methods of doing it, addressing various problems.
Kinds of Massages
The list of available treatments is long and adjusted to fulfil all needs. You can ask for Chinese, Russian, Thai, aqua, shiatsu, reiki, aromatherapy, acupressure or hot stone massage. Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of massage around, which is a full-body massage relaxing the muscles and joints. But you can also easily find Chinese, Thai, shiatsu and reflexology massages. Depending on your needs you might want to choose a deep tissue, sports or shiatsu massage if you want to treat your sore muscles. Aromatherapy and hot stone massages are great for relaxation so don’t be surprised if you end up taking a small nap during them. Other types of specialised massages include pregnancy and baby massages.
In places such as Spa Centers, apart from a range of massages, you can combine different services such as facials, body treatments and manicures.
During a Massage
If you have any worries about the massage procedure, such as getting undressed, or if it’s going to be painful - don’t worry. You remove as many clothes as you feel comfortable taking off. And when it comes to pain, if you feel like your massage therapist is applying too much pressure, just tell them. Massage should be a pleasant and relaxing experience - without any suffering. Everything in the room should be good for you - if it’s too cold, hot or the music is annoying, tell your therapist. A good massage therapist should be qualified and know how to adapt the massage to a specific person. The strength of the pressure should be moderated to your needs and expectations, and should never cause injury, yet at the same time it should ease the pain of sore muscles. Only qualified therapists know this so be sure you find the right place for your massage. There are many certified masseuses, who studied the art of massage, as well as many from Thailand, China and Japan who learnt how to perform a massage at its origins.
Booking can be done via phone or email, which you can find on Yellow. Some massage therapists don’t have fixed opening hours and work by appointment. For a possible massage at home, ask the therapist.
Massages are believed to improve health and body condition, and while the improvement of body condition is easy to prove, health improvement hasn’t yet been scientifically acknowledged. Massage helps with sore muscles and improves blood circulation, eases backaches and lowers stress, however, it won’t help fight any diseases. Special procedures, such as acupressure or reflexology might have some positive impact on general conditions but the results are more individual and what has a good impact on one person can be neutral for another. What is guaranteed is the relaxed mood after the massage, regardless of style.
