Massage For Relaxation

This full body general Swedish massage is a much needed break from the pressures of everyday life.

It works by altering signals firing from your peripheral muscles to your brain through a nerve network, eliciting the response of deep relaxation. The brain starts functioning at progressively lower frequencies from low beta waves to alpha to theta where it feels as if you are half asleep.

Another part of the mechanism: the neuronal activation shifts from amygdala (part of the brain processing emotions like anger and fear) to insula (part of the brain processing body sensations), very much like during the mindfulness meditation.

The treatment leaves you feeling centered, cleansed and relaxed immediately after, but later you find yourself refreshed and energized.
