As the name suggests a full body massage is a head-to-toe massage which works on the full body. This should always be undertaken by a professional masseuse or masseur to ensure you get the full benefits from this wonderful massage.
Preparing for a full body massage session
For those new to massage, it is important to prepare properly for your massage. This means that you will need to remove any jewellery, watches, and anything else that gets in the way of your massage treatment.
Secondly, and more importantly you should prepare yourself mentally for the massage. This means getting rid of any distractions such as mobile phones and ensure that your mind is clear and relaxed. To get the full benefit from the therapy, its important to make sure your mind is focused on the massage before meeting your therapist.
How long should I book for?
The minimum time for a proper full body massage treatment is one hour, although many people report that 2 hours plus is better for the complete top to toe massage treatment.
What Benefits will I get from full body massage?
The benefits of a full body massage are many and include:
Stress and tension relief – A full body massage provides the perfect way to relax and get rid of pent-up stress and tension. Although stress starts off as a psychological problem, it can then manifest as a physical problem making your body feel tight and in some cases with pain. Your masseuse will expertly work your body, to work out this tension throughout the body during your full body treatment.
Improved Circulation – Your therapist will use effleurage, wringing as well as lymphatic drainage to improve the circulation of blood and lymph through the body. This is a very gentle massage technique comprised of different strokes, and this is not only good for the circulation of blood in the body, but also of lymph, which fights infection and boosts the immune system.
Range of Motion – Your experienced masseuse will also help to improve your range of motion through this treatment. As the massage relieves tightness in the muscles and joints this will lead to an increased range of motion, which is particularly useful among older people.
Pain Relief – For those that are experiencing pain in the body, or have a soft tissue injury, full body massage can provide a welcome relief from pain as the benefits are felt almost immediately after commencing the massage. Your experienced therapist will be focus on any problem areas in the body to promote recovery and relief any stiffness and pain.
