The relaxation massage is one of the most well-known forms of massage and has been around for thousands of years. The basis of this massage is to calm the body and mind.
There is a difference between a Deep tissue- and a Relaxation massage. The Relaxation massage does not aim to restore your deeper muscles, but mostly works on the outer layers of the muscle tissue. The pace and pressure during the relaxation massage are also softer.
