Stress relief is one of the most significant benefits of relaxation massage and is an important component of a healthier lifestyle. A one-hour massage session can reduce stress by lowering the heart rate and reducing levels of insulin and cortisol.


Chair Massage Therapy near Dexter

The Chair Massage technique focuses on the manipulation of the soft tissues on the upper body, including; the head, neck, back and the shoulders which are often the source of frequent tension. When seated in a specially designed chair, the therapist has easy access to the key areas, and the result is a very targeted massage - designed to pinpoint exact areas of the body.

The muscles of the neck, shoulders and back are subjected to daily stress and often these stresses can cause body tissue to become sore and stiff. A therapist often uses his or her elbows in conjunction with the hands to apply pressure to the affected regions and muscle groups during the chair massage. The result of this gentle manipulation of tissue is muscle relaxation, and the release of tension and stress.

As such, massage therapy plays a vital role in pain management and relief. Muscle knots (also referred to as Adhesions) are the frequent cause of aches and pains, especially in the neck. The scalene muscle group in the neck is often the origin of pain that spreads throughout the shoulders, upper back, chest, hands, arms and even the side of the head. Skilled therapists can easily and effectively target the muscle groups when the guest is in the chair as well as release Trigger Points, providing the immediate relief.

Fully Clothed & Comfortable

Full-body table massages require that a guest undress, but only according to his/her level of comfort. Some guests are self-conscious about their bodies or are simply uncomfortable being undressed in front of a therapist. When a massage is performed in a chair, a guest can remain fully clothed and still reap all the benefits of massage treatment.


Corporate Chair Massage For Your Business!

No matter what your employees' duties are, the office can often be a source of stress. Presentations, deadlines, meetings and big projects can all cause the neck, back and shoulders to ache and stiffen. Corporate massage addresses this issue by making relaxation and rejuvenation part of the work day, leading to many benefits for both employees and the company as a whole.

Boosting Productivity

Even a brief massage can seriously boost productivity and problem solving abilities. According to the journal American Psychologist, employees who receive a 15-minute massage emerge from the chair better able to take on complicated tasks. Massage also relieves fatigue and stimulates creative thinking, creating a more energetic and innovative team.

Absenteeism is a significant threat to overall productivity. Employees who work in stressful environments may need to take a day just to relax and clear their minds. Corporate massage accomplishes that right in the office so employees are less likely to take time off. Less stress also means happier employees and better performance.


Sports & Deep Tissue Massage Therapists for Dexter

Roman physician, surgeon, and philosopher Claudius Galen (AD 129 - 200) is widely recognized as the developer of an early therapeutic massage regiment (in the second century, mind you!) that would be comparable to what is now commonly referred to as a Sports Massage. Sports Massage is important for every level of athlete from cross-country runners to power lifters to football players. Before an event, sports massage allows for the player to loosen their muscles and after an event it allows the player to relax the muscles to decrease the chance of sports related stress injuries. Sports massage is also a key element in preventing injuries and also helping athletes recover more quickly from injuries. Using Sports Massage properly will help athletes maintain and even improve upon their conditioning. Three main types of massage are integrated in a therapeutic Sports Massage to maximize the health and/or repair benefits of it.


Swedish & Relaxation Massages

Over time, the body builds up unhealthy amounts of stress hormones in response to work deadlines, traffic jams, relationship problems and more. These hormones can cause physical problems, like digestive issues, headaches and sleeplessness. Relaxation massage decreases the amount of stress hormones in the body, leaving clients feeling completely relaxed and rested, even after the session is over. The techniques used during the massage trigger changes in the brain's chemistry, resulting in reduced stress and an improved mood.

Relaxation Process

During the session, the guest lays on a massage table in a quiet, comforting environment. Dim lighting and soft music contribute to the peaceful atmosphere, creating the perfect setting for worries and stress to melt away. Using his or her hands, the therapist applies gentle pressure to the body, smoothly manipulating the muscle tissue. The careful rubbing and kneading of the body's outer tissue layers promotes complete relaxation of both the mind and body.
