The For'rest Massage​

Our signature For’rest relaxing massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. A de-stress massage in a forest atmosphere achieved with essencial oils and eucalyptus leaves. One of the primary goals of this massage is to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.

The light to medium pressure helps relieve stress, reduce pain, boost mood and promote relaxation. This massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood. The circulation increase brings energy-producing nutrients and oxygen to your cells as well as carries away metabolic waste products that can make you feel listless and drained.

Benefits of the For'rest Massage​

Decrease Anxiety

Reduces mental and physical stress and encourages muscular relaxation by breaking up lactic acid.

Enhances Quality of Sleep

Releases Delta Waves in the brain which can help induce a better night’s sleep.

Boost Immunity

Decreases the level of cortisol (stress hormone) which in long term can take a toll on the Immune System.

For'rest Massage Techniques

Effleurage is often used when starting or finishing work on an area, or taking a break from intense work. The therapist uses long gliding motions of varying pressure, according to your needs. Effleurage increases circulation, and warms up the tissue. Therapists use fingertips, palms and forearms to perform this technique.

Petrissage involves rhythmically kneading, wringing, or rolling the muscle to access deeper tissue, often while lifting the muscle. This technique brings blood to the area and separates muscles fibers from one another. The alternate squeezing pattern is very relaxing, as it signals the brain to release tension in the area.

Massage therapists often use tapotement when performing relaxing massages. Using cupped hands, or the side of the hand, (think soft chopping), the therapist will “strike” your muscles with both hands. Doing this for a long period of time (over sixty seconds) will exhaust the muscle, relaxing tension and easing spasms.

Vibration is a less commonly used, but effective, massage technique. The massage therapist loosens your muscles by using the heel of the hand, or the fingertips, to vibrate your muscles, causing them to release and relax. Vibration is used locally, in small areas where a spasm just won’t quit.
