Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or internal organs. There are over eighty different recognized massage modalities, but Radiant Massage focus on the 3 main areas – relaxation, deep tissue/sports massage and prenatal massage.
Most massage treatments will relax you, among other things. With a relaxation massage, relaxing you is the only aim. For this reason, it is one of the most complete and indulgent massages you can have.
Relaxation massage is a passive treatment. You probably won’t be stretched or manoeuvred into any yoga-like positions, as you are in Sports massage. You just lie there and relax.
This is the massage to choose if you just want to chill out, and spoiled.
Sports massage is a deep massage using pumping and helps to prepare the body for activity.
Pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mothers’ needs.
Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and nutrients to the placenta. Prenatal massage is a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited.
Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.
