What is a Relaxation Massage?

Relaxation Massage is a relaxing and soothing massage to help release tension and stress and improve your circulation and overall general wellbeing.

This classic massage incorporates long gliding strokes and circular pressure from hands and palms. Your therapists may also incorporate joint movement to relieve muscle tension. The main focus of a Relaxation Massage is to induce total body relaxation, and it is perfect for de-stressing and nurturing the body and mind. Relaxation is a full-body massage, and your therapist will tailor the pressure to suit your request.

What is involved in a Relaxation Massage Treatment?

Our team of highly experienced and qualified massage therapists will first ask you to sign a consent form for this massage. They will ask questions to ensure there aren’t any underlying issues they must be aware of before commencing the massage. Your therapist will then instruct you on how to prepare for the massage and ensure you are comfortable before starting the massage.

What are the benefits of a Relaxation Massage?

The calming effects of Relaxation massage are particularly effective in treating conditions related to anxiety and depression. Many people who suffer from anxiety and depression have trouble relaxing. Since the ultimate goal of Relaxation Massage is total body relaxation, it helps treat these conditions along with promoting general wellbeing.

The release of tension and the increase in blood flow that massage creates can help in the following ways:

  • Reduction in stress, anxiety and tension
  • Calming of the nervous system
  • Relief of muscle cramps and spasms
  • Promotes a sense of wellbeing and relaxation
  • Blood pressure reduction
  • Prevention of injuries and stress-related issues
  • Improved flexibility and mobility
  • Increased Immune system
  • Increased endorphins
  • Stimulation of the Lymphatic and circulatory systems, therefore carrying away the body’s waste products
  • Pain Management (e.g. Sciatica and Arthritis)
  • Mental Clarity. All situations are looked upon from a different perspective when we are relaxed.

Who Benefits from a Relaxation Massage?

Everyone can benefit from a relaxation massage. Young or old, pro athletes or weekend warriors, everyone can enjoy the physical and mental health benefits of a Relaxation Massage.

Had a relaxation massage and it was wonderful. Leila made me feel so safe and special. Definitely recommend Body for Life to anyone.

Anthony Baskovich

With a monthly membership I’ve tried relaxation, remedial, hot stone massage as well as reflexology and an hour long head and face massage. Each time the therapist has been professional and very good at their job. They will adjust the pressure if it’s too hard or soft.
Just brilliant!!! I always look forward to my monthly massage and always walk out feeling a lot less tension than what I walk in with.


Had a relaxation massage leaving me in a total state of calm that not even peak hour freeway traffic could alter.

Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress to your underwear, and you will be covered with a towel at all times except the area being worked on. At all times, you must wear underwear. Any request to massage nude will not be honoured. Failing to comply with our rules will cause the treatment to cease immediately.

    Your massage will take place in a private, comfortable, quiet room. Easy listening music will be playing to help you relax, or you may choose to play your music; let the therapist know, and they will turn off the room speaker for you. Lighting can also be dimmed, so please ask if you prefer this.

    Upon arrival, you will be led to our lounge area, where you will be offered herbal tea or water. You will be asked to fill in our health history client intake form, which you will hand to the therapist when they call you through to your treatment room.

    Your therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like to work on, if any conditions need to be addressed, and to determine what type of massage or combination of modalities is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform specific assessments and testing to evaluate your condition and range of motion and see if you have any particular complaints or areas of concern.
