Relaxation vs. Therapeutic Massage

Massage Janesville WIRelaxation massage is about balancing the body to bring the body back to the rest and digest mode.  It’s focused on making you feel good now, decreasing your stress level, soothing your nervous system and is typically focused on the whole body, not specific body parts or muscles.

Therapeutic massage is focused on specific body parts or muscles and on achieving a goal, and helping you make significant progress toward better health, less pain, and increased range of motion.  You should also experience relaxation by the end of the session because when you are relieved of pain you relax.
