5 Most Relaxing Massages for Summer

Are you looking for ways to relax? Whether you feel stressed helping your kids get ready to go back to school or feel anxious in general, a massage can help you feel better. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers the five most relaxing massages for summer. Learn about these different massages and see which of the relaxation massages is right for you to help manage and reduce stress.

Swedish Massage

When people think of a massage, the first massage they typically think of is a Swedish massage. Swedish massages are performed in spas and wellness centers and are also performed by Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage. Aruna will use different types of strokes during your massage to maximize your relaxation.

Swedish massages do more than just help you relax. Some of the benefits include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better flexibility
  • Improvement in your body’s circulation

If you need a new way to relax, a Swedish massage can help immensely.

Warm Stone Massage

If you are experiencing back or pain or tight muscles, adding an element of heat can help you feel better. Aruna performs warm stone massages, which use specific types of stones placed on your body to help with relaxation and relief.

The type of stone used depends on how you currently feel based on the chakras of your body. Larger stones hold heat for longer periods of time. Smoother stones are preferred for moving stones around your body whereas jagged stones are if you need to hold them. Aruna will work with you to determine the right stones for you.

Bamboo Fusion Massage

A bamboo fusion massage uses bamboo to aid in a relaxation massage. Similarly to a warm stone massage, bamboo holds heat well, which can help loosen your muscles while you relax during the massage. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna is certified in bamboo fusion massage and is one of the few massage therapists in Cincinnati who holds the certification. Whether you need a slightly deeper massage to help with tight muscles or want to enhance your massage, using bamboo is a great way to achieve it.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

If you have had surgery this summer or were in a car accident and have whiplash, a lymphatic drainage massage can help. While a lymphatic drainage massage is more of a medical massage, it can be quite relaxing. Aruna uses specialized touches to help stimulate your lymphatic system, which helps to remove waste from your body.

Cupping Therapy

Additionally, if you have chronic pain, a session of cupping therapy can help. Cupping therapy uses specialized cups that suction your skin into them through negative pressure. This allows fresh blood to enter the area, which can help manage your pain.

Managing stress is a key component of better self care. If you are looking for ways to relieve stress and help you a relax, a massage is a great way to do that. Whether you want to try one of the five most relaxing massages for summer or another type of massage, Aruna is here to help.
