What is the best massage for stress?

There’s no doubt all massages are good for relieving stress, but some are definitely more relaxing than others. These forms of massage are most credited with helping reduce stress and boost wellbeing:

  • Swedish massage - the most traditional of massages. Your massage therapist will use long strokes with gentle rolling and kneading across your body. The soothing movements promote relaxation, so don’t be surprised if you nod off half way through.
  • Aromatherapy massage - it’s no secret that a long soak in an aromatic bath can relieve some of the stresses of the day. Well, an aromatherapy massage has the same effect, but better. The oils will alleviate stress by soaking straight into your skin.
  • Hot stone massage - the hot stones used in this massage help to get rid of tension in your body, which relieves stress, leaving you much more revitalised.
