Improve Your Life Today – The 7 Most Popular Types of Home Massage – Part I

  1. Aromatherapy Massage

This is a very popular type of massage where the therapist selects different essential oils that are relaxing, soothing, energising and smell rather lovely. An aromatherapy massage is an ideal way to receive a home massage particularly if you’re seeking a relaxing, gentle therapeutic massage.

  1. Swedish Massage

This type of massage is very common and was pioneered by a Swedish physiologist Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) at the University of Stockholm. You may have not even realised you were receiving a Swedish style massage because the massage therapist simply uses long smooth strokes, kneading and round movements on the upper layers of your muscle using a massage oil.

  1. Hot Stone Massage

My favourite type of massage, providing the stones are not too hot! Hot Stone Massage is a lovely relaxing type of massage where smooth heated stones are placed on certain points of the body to relax tightened muscles and balance the energy flows in the body. A Hot stone massage is ideal for recipients who want a lighter massage but want to release the tension in their muscles.

All three types of massage can be requested for a home massage. The remaining 4 Most Popular Massages will be outlined in our blog next week.
