Relaxing is a type of massage designed to relax the body, but also to give a sense of pleasure, relaxation and tranquility. This type of massage is not applied for therapeutic purposes. Relaxing massage aims only to pleasure, relief and relaxation.
The technique involves muscle massages as well as spreading with various beneficial substances such as essential oils and fragrances.
This type of massage is done only by specialists, usually in spa centers, aesthetics institutes and hotel services. Generally it is milder than the therapeutic one and the procedure does not cause pain.
The common feature between relaxing and therapeutic massage is that both improve circulation locally and increase the local temperature.
Their difference is that the therapeutic massage is more intense, in many cases slightly painful and used to heal muscle and bone problems while the relaxing one is mild enough, does not hurt and is considered quite enjoyable.
