Relaxation Massage VS Therapeutic Massage VS Relaxation & Therapeutic Massage

So now we have Traditional Body Massage and Sexual Enhancement Massage. How do we differentiate them in the first place? We might say that the former is more relaxing and the latter is towards therapeutic. But they actually can be both relaxing and therapeutic at the same time. For some people massage therapy is an occasional treat, usually at the day spa around a holiday, birthday or on vacation. Other clients of massage therapy may receive a therapeutic massage weekly for chronic health conditions such as headaches or back pain. Massage is even used for relief from cancer treatment symptoms.

A relaxation massage is a smooth, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, improves circulation and range of movement, and relieves muscular tension. The massage therapist will use light to medium pressure, depending on the client’s preference, and the intent of the session is to help the client relax. This type of massage is often performed in a day spa or resort. Spa add-on treatments might include a paraffin hand treatment, a sea salt or sugar body scrub, or a mud or cream application to the body. Relaxation massage might be scheduled as part of a half-day package and the client might also plan to receive a facial, pedicure or haircut in the same visit.

Therapeutic effects do not only apply to medications, drugs or supplements, perhaps because pharmacology approaches are more often more rigorously evaluated by comparison with placebo treatments (cause the patient to believe the treatment will change his/her condition and this belief may produce a subjective perception of a therapeutic effect, causing the patient to feel their condition has improved). It applies to any treatment approach, including surgery, physical therapy, psychotherapy, treatment with compounds, faith healing, hypnosis, holistic methods and etc. that is any method of which one can conceive.

Therapeutic massage sessions are setup quite differently from a spa massage. It is paramedical treatment that helps to restore function to injured "soft tissues" (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Therapy may involve the use of various types of massage, as well as a range of other physical treatments to assist your recovery. In addition, you may be asked to perform some activities at home to assist the process of recovery. The setting may be a clinic, hospital or private practice office. A first time client may spend extra time at his or her session to complete a very thorough intake form detailing current and past health complaints. This type of session may retain a large relaxation element to it but advanced techniques are likely to be used for pain and chronic health issues. A therapeutic or clinical massage practitioner will see a client very frequently for the first few weeks or months. This might include half hour massages three times a week, or weekly hour massages for a couple of months. Advanced techniques such as deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy may be used in a more clinical setting.

Apart from all that we have discussed above, here at  KL Urut Batin you can experience both relaxing and therapeutic massage at the same time with our experienced therapist. Just tell what your problems are and we'll try to manage them accordingly. Towards a healthy mind, body and spirit.
