Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage focuses on helping you reach a state where you can breathe deeply, release tension, and unwind.

Relaxation massage takes a gentle and soothing approach to give you a mini reprieve from life. Depending on your wellness goals, this popular technique can still have a therapeutic intention but also aims to help you breathe deeper and provide a peaceful hour to engage in mindfulness.

  • Tailored to your needs

    Your wellness massage may focus on one specific area, such as your back, neck and shoulders, or as a whole-body approach, including hands, feet and scalp massage. The direction of the appointment is adaptable to your needs.

  • Soothing experience

    I use coconut oil or a lotion to relieve tense muscles, reduce stress, and improve circulation wherever you need it. These mediums allow my hands to glide smoothly over the skin, providing a comfortable and soothing experience.

  • Promotes well-being

    A relaxation massage can create a sense of contentment and improve overall well-being. You will breathe deeper, feel your tension melt away, and experience a calming endorphin release.

  • Improved well-being and mental outlook
  • Faster recovery from post-exercise pain
  • Pain management
  • Relief from headaches
  • Improved energy levels and reduced fatigue
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Release of built-up muscle tension

  • Lessened bloating
  • Minimized PMS symptoms
  • Reduced inflammation

    A safe place

    The massage room is a safe, inclusive and confidential space. You are welcome to chat the whole session, a little bit, or say nothing at all! The main goal is to relax and let your mind and body find rest.

    Positive routine

    Getting massages regularly has many benefits. It provides a positive outing and a chance to socialize with the clinic staff, and makes you accountable by doing something healthy for yourself on a reoccurring basis.

    Pain relief

    Acute and chronic pain is exhausting and affects all aspects of your life. Let’s lower your shoulders, ease your headache, and lengthen those tight calf muscles.


    Our bodies want to move. We habitually sit at a computer or stand all day, repeatedly over-straining and weakening the same muscles. We develop muscle imbalance, poor postural habits, and joint stiffness, and that needs attention.

    Digestive stimulation

    The belly can be an emotional body part for people and is often untouched by massage therapists. A belly massage helps stimulate intestinal movement, which can reduce bloating and constipation, help relax tight abdominal muscles, and increase blood and lymphatic circulation. Also, it helps to decrease stress and aids in better digestion and nutrient absorption. I offer relaxation and lymphatic massage to the abdomen; both are gentle techniques.


    Life can be stressful and demanding. A relaxation massage re-energizes, soothes and unwinds both your body and mind. From a soothing head-to-toe massage or a deeper therapeutic approach, this technique benefits everyone.

    Relaxation massage is like a mini vacation for your body: it’s all about letting go of tension and stress.

    Reasons to Book Relaxation Massage

    You’re sore from work

    Do you find yourself sitting or standing for long periods or performing the same action repeatedly? Are you too sore and tired after work to exercise? Being inactive hurts, and you miss out on the things you enjoy! No matter your job, a wellness massage will benefit you.

    You’re sore from injury

    A relaxation massage is a great choice when experiencing pain from an injury. The injury site, as well as any compensating areas, will be included, assisting you in a quicker recovery.

    You’re sore from parenting

    Who needs a time-out more than caregivers? Nursing, holding your baby, and lack of sleep are just a few of the changes involved with parenting. A wellness massage may be the ticket if you're experiencing pain, stress, fatigue and need some you-time.

    You’re sore from surgery

    After surgery, you may find a massage helpful in managing physical discomfort. Massage is a natural way to de-stress and lower cortisone levels while you recuperate.

    You’re not sore at all!

    Relaxation massage is perfect even when you are injury-free and want to enjoy a massage just because you want to. No matter how you look at it, massage can form a key part of your regular self-care routine.

    Regular sessions help improve your overall well-being and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.

    • What techniques are used during a relaxation massage?

      A wellness massage is all about creating a soothing and personalized experience. I focus on calming your nervous system by using Swedish massage techniques, including a variety of long gliding strokes, effleurage, picking up, wringing, and kneading, while adjusting the pressure to your preference.

      I'm here to listen to your needs, whether you have specific areas that require extra therapeutic attention or if you're interested in a lymphatic face or scalp massage. Your treatment can be a full-body approach or more targeted to focus on areas where you need it most.

      Every massage session is designed to promote deep relaxation, ease muscle tension, and leave you feeling completely zen.

    • How much pressure is applied during a relaxation massage?

      The amount of pressure during your massage is entirely up to you and depends on your comfort level and the tension in your muscles. With your guidance, I'll work closely with you to find the perfect amount of pressure that best suits your needs. Please keep in mind I don’t offer a hard or consistently deep tissue massage!

    • What should I expect during a relaxation massage?

      During every massage appointment, my top priority is making sure you feel comfortable and at ease. I believe in clear and open communication every step of the way.

      1. We'll begin by discussing your health history and what you're hoping to achieve with the massage. Then, we'll chat about how much clothing you’re comfortable with removing, ensuring you feel heard and respected.
      2. Once we've addressed all your questions and concerns, I'll step out of the room briefly to give you some privacy. When I return, I'll knock on the door and enter once you're settled on the massage table. I'll check in to see if you need any adjustments to pillows, blankets, or room temperature.
      3. As we start the massage, I'll guide you to take a few deep breaths. Throughout the session, I'll regularly check in to ensure the pressure and depth of the massage feel just right for you. And remember, you're welcome to ask me any questions during the appointment.
      4. At the end of your treatment, I'll step outside to give you a moment to get dressed. Once you're ready, just open the door, and I'll come back in. We can then discuss how you're feeling after the massage, and if you'd like, I can offer some tips for self-care at home.
