Here at Qi Massage & Natural Healing Spa, we consider it our mission to help you release your everyday stress and enjoy the relaxation you deserve. With today’s fast pace of living, it’s common to carry around a lot of tension in your muscles–so common, in fact, that many people don’t even realize they’re doing it. Holding this tension in your body for an extended period can lead to negative outcomes, including back or neck pain, headaches, or increased blood pressure. One way you can avoid these problems is with our stretching massage technique. In this article, we will go over how stretching massage works, and how it helps you de-stress.
“Stretching massage” is a term we use to describe a process of assisted, full-body stretches. This stretching routine is designed to improve flexibility and restore ease and comfort to areas of the body that become compressed and cramped from the postures of everyday living. For example, if your office desk chair causes you back pain, stretching massage can help you counter the tensions placed on that area and restore your back to a neutral, natural state of relaxation. Having one of our trained massage therapists guide you through the routine of a stretching massage is also a great way to become more aware of your body and the places you tend to accumulate tension–that way, in the future, you can recognize this tension and release it before it can become painful.
If you want to improve your flexibility or just avoid the aches and pains of repetitive body positions, call our team at Qi Massage & Natural Healing Spa to book an appointment for one of our stretching massages.
