Types of massage for relieving stress

The most popular type of massage is the Swedish massage which is more gentle type of full body massage. Those first trying massage are drawn to this as it tends the be gentler and less invasive. However, even though it is of a gentler nature it is still a very effective therapy and a treatment many are drawn to if they have a lot of tension and have sensitivity to being touched in a more vigorous way. Swedish massage is an ideal choice for relaxation and managing minor pain, It is also ideal for people who are being introduced to massage therapy for the first time.  Another effective treatment is Aromatherapy massage with the use of essential oils.

There is evidence that it boosts your mood and reduces both stress and anxiety as well as having other benefits.  For someone who is unsure whether they will like a full body massage then a chair massage accessing your neck and shoulders is perfect for relieving stress and tension. If time is of the essence for you then this takes just fifteen to twenty minutes as opposed to an hour or more for a full body treatment.
