Spa/Relaxation Style Massage
Relaxation massage is similar to that offered at most spas. And while it may resemble that of massage therapy, it is in fact, entirely different. The focus is on on helping you relax, unwind and relieve any stress you may be experiencing. This service is not considered a healthcare service and is more geared at helping you feel more calm and ready to handle day to day stresses.
While both Massage Therapists and Relaxation Massage providers use a similar manual techniques, they each have their own unique goals when it comes to outcomes.
