Restorative massage aims to create deep mental and physical relaxation by down regulating the nervous system. It is designed to naturally unwind your body, making it easy to rest with little to no effort. This is a massage for those who are feeling depleted and not coping with the stressors of life.
The health benefits of restorative massage include;
- Gently releasing muscle knots

- Balancing the nervous system
- Improve circulation & skin tone
- Holistically improves work-related stress
- Reduce pain in the body
- Connect mind & body
Restorative massage therapy involves free flowing long, kneading strokes, as well as light pressure to help release muscle knots. By relieving muscle tension, this can be both relaxing and energizing.
This style of massage focuses on reducing tension and is a good choice for when you want to fully relax and let go of the day
