Thai Oil Massage Victoria BC, Canada
Good for: relaxation and de-stressing; blood flow circulation.
This is a warm oil massage with organic extra virgin coconut oil which nourishes the skin and takes your mind away to a tropical paradise. This relaxation-focused form of massage is what most people think of first when they think about massage. Masseuses use a sequence of long, gliding strokes, kneads, and circular motions to help ease shallow tension in the muscles. Using massage oil to help their strokes glide, they focus the pressure along the muscles that run the length of the body. Aromatherapy may be added to enhance relaxation.
Benefit: Besides helping to relax the muscles and ease superficial tension, relaxation massage may also help boost circulation throughout the body.
The whole relaxation massage experience is also a potential stress reliever, which is a benefit unto itself. Plus, it can improve blood flow, delivering more oxygen to cells. A lesser-known benefit—moisturized, glowing skin—results from the application of massage oils.
