FLOWING STROKES, KNEADING AND GENTLE – LIGHT MANIPULATIONS OF THE MUSCLES
Swedish Relaxation massage varies from light to medium to firm pressure, however, relaxation massage is gentle-lighter pressure.
A Registered Massage Therapist will adjust the pressure safely – according to your sensitivity, preference and medical condition.
You can chose your pressure if you are in a current state of good health, and the pressure you request is aligned with your medical health history and approved by your doctor.
It’s not just about your preferences for light or deep pressure, but also your health and physical condition and health.
(Keep in mind, massage does not have to be hard and painful to be an effective relaxation massage. Your preference for light or deep pressure depends highly on your current health and physical condition whether the RMT will comply and perform your request. What you want and what your body needs can vary sometimes, that’s why it is recommended to visit a Registered Massage Therapist to ensure safe pressure and manipulation during your massage.)
