Body Massage Different Types and Benefits


Swedish relaxation massage

The spa's most popular treatment by far. Swedish massage is the ultimate in relaxation. This technique is a beautiful way to ease away tension. The technique used in this type of massage focuses on muscle relaxation, targeting superficial muscles (rather than the connective tissues targeted in deep-tissue massage) and increasing blood circulation. If you’re looking to reduce tension or suffer from anxiety, then definitely opt for a Swedish massage. Custom aromas to enhance your experience are suggested as well.


Remedial massage

A more intense and specialized technique that focuses on treating issues related to knotted, tense, damaged muscles or if you have limited mobility. It's ideal if you're a sports athlete, regularly engage in strenuous exercise, or lead a physically demanding lifestyle.

Massage therapists use pressure, massage, and stretching to deeply massage the muscle and stimulate the body's repair mechanisms. Remedial massage has numerous advantages, including the relief of tension and muscle pain, the improvement of posture and joint mobility, the reduction of physical and mental stress, and the improvement of sleep.


Aromatherapy massage

Essential oils are used in this treatment to improve both mental and physical well-being. The main advantages of aromatherapy massage are stress and anxiety reduction, muscle tension reduction, and pain relief. It also aids in the reduction of mental stress and the relaxation of your body. We have a variety of essential oils, each with its own set of benefits ranging from calming and relaxation to energizing blends.


Hot Stone

Therapists use heated basalt rocks in this deeply relaxing massage technique (a type of volcanic rock). The smooth and flat hot stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The warmth of the stones enhances the benefits of your massage by relieving muscle tension and pain while also increasing blood flow to the area. Our clients also find the warmth to be a very relaxing experience, adding to the mental relaxation state.


Soy Candle

A one-of-a-kind massage treatment that provides a wonderful warming and relaxing experience by stretching, working, and relaxing the muscles with Swedish massage techniques. During the treatment, spas use a specialized soy oil-based candle to warm the oil, which is then poured onto the skin and massaged in. The warmth relieves muscle tension and aids in relaxation, making it a wonderfully relaxing treatment. This massage employs candle soy oil, which is high in vitamin E and leaves the skin feeling nourished, hydrated, soft, and rejuvenated after the massage.


Pregnancy Massage

Your body is put under extra stress and muscle strain during pregnancy as you carry extra weight and your body changes to accommodate carrying a growing baby. Some therapists are trained in specialized pregnancy massage techniques to ensure you receive a safe and relaxing treatment. They are aware of the areas to avoid and will ensure your comfort in bed. The advantages are numerous, including stress reduction, muscle relaxation, increased blood flow, and improved mood and sleep quality.


For now, Mediterranean-Beauty Day Spa in Columbus, Ohio only provides face, scalp, hand and foot massage. In the future, additional massage services may be added.
