Relaxation Massage is the primary massage therapy technique learned by RMTs in Ontario.
This technique uses moderate to deep pressure and combines kneading, gliding movements and direct pressure to stretch and release muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Relaxation Massage reduces pain, relieves chronic muscle tension, increases circulation, promotes relaxation and calm, and can help in dealing with stress. One of the most effective traditional massage techniques, it is used to release muscular tension and trigger-points or "knots. Relaxation Massage therapy can be used either for relaxation or to treat specific injuries or pain.
