Your muscles are tense and you feel like it’s finally time for a massage? You started looking for massages in Bournemouth but the list of possibilities goes on and on? Good news! Today we will help you pick the perfect one with our list of popular types of massage, health benefits included.
1. Hot stone massage
Are you looking for an effective way to reduce pain and once and for all forget about muscle tension? In that case, a hot stone massage is exactly what you need! One of the most popular massages in Bournemouth is often used as a complementary therapy for many conditions such as muscle pain, stress, anxiety, chronic pain, or symptoms of autoimmune conditions (e.g. fibromyalgia). This one-of-a-kind, thermal stone massage works on energy points located throughout the body. The gentle pressure from heated, basalt rocks along with the massage not only rebalances and harmonizes the body but also provides the effect of literally wiping out all kinds of tension. Sounds good, right? Well, that’s not all!
Treatment that originated in China about 2000 years ago has of course many other benefits aside from those mentioned above, here are a few more examples:
- ensures a deeper massage;
- gives you an immunity boost;
- improves flexibility;
- is known to help with chronic pain conditions;
- promotes relaxation and sleep;
2. Deep tissue massage
The best way to promote faster healing after strains and sports injuries? Definitely, deep tissue massage is number 3 on our list of trendy massages available in Bournemouth. The technique which uses much more pressure than a Swedish massage may cause slight pain in specific areas, but overall light discomfort is worth it without a doubt. Deep finger pressure and gentle strokes are used by the massage therapist to release tension from even the lowest levels of muscles and connective tissues during deep tissue massage treatments, which typically last between 60 and 90 minutes. As a result, you can anticipate fractionation, which helps to loosen adhesions and align tissue fibers, as well as stripping, which applies deep pressure down the length of muscle fibers.
Deep tissue massage offers benefits not only for your physical but also for your mental health, such as:
- Stress relief;
- Lowering blood pressure and heart rate;
- Reducing arthritis symptoms;
- Improving stiffness;
3. Lymphatic drainage massage
If you have never heard about it before then it’s about time to change this situation, because lymphatic drainage massage is currently one of the most celeb-loved health practices. Even though it’s been around for decades, lymphatic massage therapy somehow managed to sneak into the mainstream exactly 2 years ago and since then has gained a lot of fans, all thanks to the fact that it’s gentle and really enjoyable. If you’re one of those people who love the feeling of getting their head massaged with a scalp massager, then you should really go for it and book yourself a session, because it feels quite similar.
Lymphatic drainage massage encourages the lymph fluids to circulate through the body and removes toxins as well as:
- Debloats and depuffs;
- Gives skin a healthy glow;
- Eases tension in the body;
- Breaks down cellulite and fat cells;
4. Balinese massage
Do you want to get a massage but the endless possibilities aren’t really helpful in making the final decision? What if we told you that you can try a variety of massage techniques all at once? If that sounds like a plan, then Balinese massages in Bournemouth will be the best choice for you. A full-body, holistic, deep-tissue treatment uses a combination of reflexology, acupressure, gentle stretches, and aromatherapy, all to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen, and energy around your body. Skin rolling, kneading, stroking, and pressure-point stimulation will help you with:
- Reducing stress levels;
- Rebalancing your body;
- Relieving strained muscles and joint pain;
- Soothing damaged tissue;
Wrinkles, loss of firmness, dull and tired skin – these are just some effects of skin aging. Luckily, among Bournemouth massages, there is a non-invasive way to deal with these kinds of problems. Bid adieu to botox, fillers, endless layers of creams and serums, and other items with lengthy ingredient labels, and use Kobido instead! A unique technique combining massage and cosmetic treatment, ancient, Japanese traditional facial massage, which dates back to the 15th century, focuses on deep skin and muscles and is well renowned for its revitalizing impact.
Kobido is a stimulating face-and-neck massage that enables the therapist to simultaneously affect the nerve system. It promotes the energy circulation of the face, neck, and entire body (back, shoulders, arms, neck, and hands) while, at the same time, releasing muscle tension. To sum up, it helps maintain beautiful, firm skin by boosting blood circulation, improves the oval of the face, helps to fight the effects of stress on the body (such as insomnia, fatigue, or headaches), reduces the pain associated with a tight jaw, relieves stress, releases happy hormones, and makes you not only look but also feel regenerated and revitalized.
Even though the list of health benefits looks promising, not everyone can try Kobido. This type of massage is not recommended for pregnant women, people who have previously suffered a neck injury, and those whose skin suffers from severe irritation or acne.
