What is the Best Massage?

There are many types of body massage, so it makes sense that you may wonder which one, if any, are the best. As it turns out, there is no single "best" type that should be requested. Instead, it depends on your goals.

If you want to alleviate deep muscle tension or stiffness, it makes sense to choose a type of massage that involves deep pressure. These types can sometimes be a bit painful near the surface of the body, but they are the ones that involve pushing hard enough to reach the stiff, sore muscles deep within your body. In this case, a light massage won't even affect those muscles, so you would end up as sore as ever once it was complete.

On the other hand, if you want to get rid of the sort of general tension that comes after a tough day at work, a light massage will be the best massage. This type gets rid of tension near the surfaces of your body, and typically involves no discomfort. You get to just lay there and enjoy, and that's exactly what you need for general relaxation.

At Dreamland Spa, massage is often accompanied by the use of various tools or aids, such as warm oil, aromatic oil, and more. These can enhance your relaxation, make the experience more exotic, or help to direct massage pressures to specific body parts. Oils also make it easier for the masseuse's hands to slide across your skin, thereby reducing the chance of friction-related discomfort.

If you've never had a relaxation massage, you should definitely try it out for yourself. Whether you get a massage nearby or make a day trip out of it, it's an experience worth having.
