I Need a Massage!

There are times when I am so stressed out that I just need a massage. It's totally relaxing and calms my mind and nerves brilliantly. We spend so much time giving of ourselves and helping others that sometimes, we need to stop and let someone else give to us for a change.

I've realized that not all kinds of massages are the same - some are more relaxing than others, so here's a little clarification so you can figure out what kind of stress relieving treatment would suit you best:

Swedish Massage: This is the most common type of massage. The therapist uses massage oil to apply long, gliding strokes to increase circulation towards your heart. They use firm but gentle pressure on your muscles to improve flexibility and rid tension. Everyone likes different levels of pressure so be sure to let your therapist know what makes you feel the most comfortable.

If you want to see the others then

Shiatsu: This type of massage involves applying pressure to specific zones on the skin that are located along the energy meridians. Therapists use their fingers, palms, elbows, and knees on your muscles to increase blood flow and circulation. It feels wonderful and allows you to relax deeply.

Thai Massage: Also called lazy man's yoga. You keep your clothes on and the massage therapist actually picks up parts of your body and stretches them for you. It feels absolutely amazing, and your muscles and bones feel completely spacious and relaxed afterwards. A session can last from 1 1/2 to 2 hours long so if you're in the mood to just lie there and drift off into dreamland, this may be better suited for a day when your muscles are really sore or if you have a specific injury.

Aromatherapy Massage: This type of massage combines soothing and deep-tissue touch with the therapeutic properties of essential oils and their scents. It's extremely relaxing and afterwards, you can take a hot steamy shower to wash off the oil, leaving you soft an enveloped in scent.
