Types of Exuma Massages for your Bahama Vacation

May 9, 2018

Is there anything more relaxing than lying beachside, listening to the waves crash on the shore, enjoying a great massage? Exuma massages are a great addition to your trip. When you get a massage, not only is it relaxing, but it reduces stress and aids with muscle tension. This is the perfect addition at the beginning of your trip and also before you make your journey back home. Try one of these massages during your travels to the Exumas.

Swedish Massage

Massage therapists massage the muscles through long strokes along an area. They will start at your shoulders and arms, then work down the back and to the legs, using the palms of their hands to apply adequate pressure. A massage therapist may also use circular motions, tapping, and kneading. Stretching may be incorporated as well. Through this technique, tension will be relieved. Swedish massages are known to increase oxygen throughout the body which creates better blood flow and circulation. Whether you are an athlete, suffer from chronic pain, or just feel “knotted up,” this is the perfect massage type for relief. It also is a great massage technique for those suffering from anxiety or depression.

Deep Tissue Massage

Do you feel tight and tense? More specifically, do you feel like you have knots in your muscles? A deep tissue massage is perfect for you. Your massage therapist will focus on alleviating those knots and work through massaging muscle tissue, tendons, and connective tissue. This massage is done through slow motions and pressure to work through the various areas. Once you experience a great deep tissue massage, your muscle tightness will be relieved and muscle pains and other issues will feel much better. It is also beneficial for those with arthritis, back pain, stress and limited joint mobility.

Shiatsu Massage

Using their fingers, thumbs, and palms of their hands, massage therapists perform Shiatsu massages. During this traditional Chinese medicine technique, therapists will apply pressure throughout the body in specific areas to help reduce stress and increase blood flow. They will hold pressure points for a few seconds to help give specialized attention to various areas. This will provide relief and increase your energy. In addition, Shiatsu massages reduce headaches, aid those with arthritis and chronic pain, muscle tension, fatigue, and even digestive disorders. This is all thanks to increased blood flow throughout the body.
