Relaxation therapy methodologies are rooted in ancient eastern traditions, specifically Chinese and Japanese philosophy and spirituality. Relaxation therapy techniques are less hands-on and intensive than a traditional massage. They do not require the removal of any clothing, and involve holistic healing, treating the mind, body, and spirit of the individual.
Relaxation Therapy Explained
The basis of relaxation therapy lies in ancient Chinese and Japanese medicine, developed thousands of years ago, which identifies powerful pressure points and apexes that direct energy in every human body. By manipulating the channels through which this energy flows, otherwise referred to as meridians, a trained professional can provide valuable tension relief, relaxation, and spiritual adjustment with a few gentle, yet firm placements of the hands.
The Focus of Relaxation Therapy
Relaxation therapy relies on holistic healing, addressing spiritual, physical, and mental issues and conditions concurrently. A core tenet of our relaxation therapy treatment methodology is that the mind, body, and spirit are interwoven yet independent entities, that can be treated through the manipulation of the body’s energy flow. During a relaxation therapy session, the client remains clothed, and lays still on their back, breathing deeply. The massage professional then identifies energy points throughout the client’s body that need to be addressed. The massage therapist then applies focused pressure to each point with the palm of fingertips.
Relaxation therapy has been proven to effectively treat internal organ issues, mental health problems, and overall stress and anxiety. It is also a great way to address pain, stiffness, and soreness before they become larger issues that may harm internal organ systems, and the client’s mental health.
Rejuvenated Mental State
Because relaxation therapy focuses on overall mental and physical health and the direction of body energy flows, most people who have received relaxation therapy not only experience physical benefits, but also receive an improved mental state and outlook. By realigning and redirecting negative energy flows, the mental health of the client drastically improves.
Think of relaxation therapy as a momentary “reset button” on the thoughts and feelings that cause you anxiety or discomfort in your life. Relaxation therapy techniques have been used by athletes before big games to clear their minds, as well as Fortune 500 executives and other big decision makers when faced with high stress business scenarios.
When to Employ Relaxation Therapy
We are all faced with difficult decisions and trying times in our lives. Relaxation therapy is perfect for these instances, when physical discomfort may be just one of your broader problems. Whereas more common massage techniques mainly treat physical aches and pains, relaxation therapy digs deep to the less tangible causes of pain, realigning the client at the very core of their body, mind, and spirit.
