Different Types of Body Massage and The Benefits To Your Mind, Body & Soul

At Face Body Day Spa we provide many different types of body massage, while they are all beautiful relaxing experiences they each have different benefits to your body and muscles. If you are wondering what massage to book or looking to experience something different at your next visit below we have explained the treatments we have available and the benefits.

Swedish relaxation massage By far the most popular treatment in our spa Swedish massage is the ultimate in relaxation, this technique is a beautiful experience to ease away tension. The technique used in this type of massage focuses on muscle relaxation, targeting superficial muscles (rather than the connective tissues targeted in deep-tissue massage) and increasing blood circulation. If you’re looking to reduce tension or suffering from anxiety then definitely opt for a Swedish massage. We also offer custom aromas to enhance your experience

Remedial massage- A more intense and specialised technique that focuses on treating concerns related to muscles that are knotted, tense, damaged or if you are suffering from reduced mobility. It’s ideal if you are a sports athlete, do regular intense exercise or have a physically demanding lifestyle.

Our massage therapists use a combination of pressure, massage and stretching to deeply massage the muscle and stimulate the body’s mechanisms to repair itself. There are many benefits to remedial massage including relieving tension and muscle pain, improved posture and joint mobility, reduced physical and mental stress and improved sleep.

Aromatherapy massage This treatment uses essential oils to improve both mental and physical wellbeing. The main benefits of an aromatherapy massage are reduction of stress and anxiety, decrease in muscle tension and pain relief. It also helps to reduce mental stress and enhance your body’s relaxation. We have a range of essential oils and each one has unique benefits from calming and relaxation to energizing blends.

Hot Stone- A deeply relaxing massage technique where our therapists use heated basalt rocks (a type of volcanic rock). The hot stones are smooth and flat and are placed on specific parts of your body. The warmth in the stones adds to the benefits of your massage as the warmth eases muscle tension and pain and also increases blood flow to the area. We also find our clients find the warmth a very relaxing experience adding to the mental relaxation state.

Soy Candle A unique massage treatment that is a wonderful warming and relaxing experience using Swedish massage techniques to stretch, work and relax the muscles. During the treatment, we use a specialised soy oil based candle that heats the oil to a warm temperature that can then be poured onto the skin and massaged in. It is a wonderfully relaxing treatment as the warmth relieves muscle tension and aids in relaxation. As we are using a soy oil from the candle it is rich in vitamin E which leaves the skin feeling nourished, hydrated, soft and rejuvenated after the massage.

Pregnancy Massage- During pregnancy, your body is put under extra stress and muscle strain as you carry extra weight and your body changes to accommodate carrying a growing baby. Our therapists are trained in specialised pregnancy massage techniques to ensure we can provide you with a safe and relaxing treatment. We know the areas to avoid and will ensure you are comfortable in the bed. The benefits are endless from reducing stress, relaxing strained muscles, increasing blood flow and improving your mood and sleep quality.
