Relaxation massage stimulates the 600,000 nerve receptors in your skin, which in turn stimulates your brain. This resets your stimulation threshold which makes you feel relaxed. Relaxation massage engages the skin but not deeper tissues. Strokes are light and stimulating to the nerves. This type of massage is very versatile - like a dance. Hot stones incorporate well into a relaxation massage. Add music and some aromatherapy, and voila' - heaven on earth!
