Need more information on actually, what a massage actually entails?
Then read on…
According to some dictionaries – Massage means:
“the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, especially to relieve tension or pain”
There are numerous types of massage which originate from Europe through to the Far East & concentrate on most parts of the body but especially the:
The upper & lower arms
Upper & lower legs, thighs, feet and just about every muscle group you can think of.
Massage is the custom of rubbing, stroking, squeezing, pummelling & cupping the body. Through a massage, strong or gentle pressure will be applied by a professional massage therapist to joints and the muscles of the body to alleviate pain and tension.
Can a massage therapist be a man?
Answer: Yes both men and women often become professional massage therapists. The number one place to become qualified in massage therapy on the sunshine coast here in Australia is Q Academy in Maroochydore. Currently Lavender Moon have only female therapists.
So what kind of massage therapy may be right for you?
Here are most of the different types of massage.
Swedish massage peregian beach
The most common & popular type of massage. Swedish is a full-body massage that is ideal for people who are:
New to massage in general
Suffering from increased tension
Higher than normal stress levels
Just looking to relax more
Swedish massage can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a fantastic choice for those of you who just wish to relax, chill out and take some “me-time”
For Swedish massage, you will need to remove your clothes (leave your underwear on though). Whilst lying on a super comfortable massage table, you will be covered with a sheet. The massage therapist can move the sheet accordingly to discover areas which require massage techniques that need working on.
The massage may utilize a mix of:
Kneading & pummelling
Long slow strokes towards the heart
Deep circular motions
Vibration and tapping
Time frame: – Typically a Swedish massage may continue for 30–90 minutes.
Choose a Swedish massage if your number one “end goal” is for total relaxation or you are completely new to massage.
Hot Stone Massage (also known as Hot Rock therapy)
Hot stone massage is perfect for anyone who wishes to relax and is well suited to relieving muscle strain and anxiety. This sort of healing massage is somewhat like a Swedish massage, only the massage therapist uses heated Basalt stones (smooth stones that retain heat) along with their hands. Hot stone or Rock therapy as it is sometimes known is known to help relieve pain, improves blood flow, and eases muscle tension.
A Hot stone massage may help you if you need to:

The Hot Stone Treatment
Throughout a hot rock massage, heated & super smooth Basalt stones are used to create a more localised massage and are completely safe for all areas of the body.
Your massage therapist will hold a rock as they massage various parts of your body using Swedish massage techniques with gentle to a more firm pressure (at Lavender Moon massage, we will check in with you on just how much pressure you like)
Like Swedish massage, you will need to remove your clothes for this one also (leave your underwear on though). You’ll be covered with a sheet.
