Relaxation massage is a great tool used to reduce stress, both mental and physical, while also cutting down on fatigue. Rather than only seeking treatment after feeling pain, you can utilize relaxation massages to as a maintenance plan of sorts, keeping your body in tip-top shape to prevent injury and stress.
At Calgary Muscle and Soft Tissue Clinic, we don’t just deal with sports-related injuries and injury prevention. Our staff have spent thousands of hours kneading out muscle knots, providing our clientele with much-needed relief from their everyday body woes.
As a no-tipping facility, there’s no need to worry about price: the stated cost is what you pay. Nothing on top aside from GST.

Cortisol is a hormone that is released in the human body in response to stress. Relaxation massage has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, and thus feelings of mental stress, leading to a feeling of clarity and well-being. It is a large part of why people leave their massage sessions in an uplifted mood.
The mental benefits of relaxation massage are clear: you will walk out of the clinic with a stress-free mindset, allowing you to better focus on work, sport, family, or whatever you so choose.
Working through the knots in your muscular fibers is one of the many benefits of massage, allowing you to walk out feeling light and limber for days afterward. Massage clients often report feeling much more relaxed after a session, with greater mobility and lessened muscle aches.
However, relaxation massage is not meant to work out tense muscles; rather it is directed towards mild manipulations with an aim at relaxation. If you have more intense muscle aches and pains, you should take a look at deep tissue massage to get you back into peak shape.
Although it can work out some kinks here and there, relaxation massage is not intended to work on curing conditions like joint pain, injuries, back pain, athletic strains, etc. The intent is to provide relief from regular stress, loosen tension in the larger muscle groups, and create a sense of overall well-being.
If you are suffering from injury, deep muscle pain, joint pain, or something on a deeper level, we offer other services that may be more suitable, such as our deep tissue massage, fascial stretch therapy, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release therapy.
There’s no feeling quite like walking out of a massage session, and we can help with getting you there. At Calgary Muscle and Soft Tissue Clinic, our massage therapists are experts in body and mind wellness, and we’re looking forward to taking away your stress. If you’re interested in an appointment, you can book one here, or give us a shout at email@example.com or 403-764-1400
