What Is a Korean Massage?

The muscle tension in your body can cause pain, stiffness, and even headaches. It can also leave you feeling exhausted and drained of energy. Garden Retreat Spa offers the perfect remedy in the form of an Asian massage. Drawing from both ancient and modern massage techniques, a Korean massage can bring your body back to its natural health and relaxation and help you feel energized.

What Does a Korean Massage Involve?

Korean massage therapy is an ancient technique that combines various methods, including deep tissue massage, acupressure, and stretching. It’s based on traditional Korean medicine, a holistic, therapeutic healing system. Korean massage includes elements from other Asian massage techniques, such as Shiatsu, Thai Massage, and Tui Na.

This Asian massage focuses on relaxation and your mental and physical well-being. It typically combines gentle and rhythmic strokes with firm pressure, stretching, and kneading of the muscles. Our highly trained masseuses use their hands, elbows, and even feet to apply pressure and manipulate your muscles, stimulating circulation and relieving tension.

Benefits of a Korean Massage

A Koren massage is intended to enhance the circulation of oxygenated blood and promote better lymphatic drainage. Here are some of the benefits we can help you experience through Korean massage:

1. Relief From Muscle Pain

Muscle pain, spasms, or soreness are common problems that can significantly hamper your daily activities. A Korean massage helps relax the muscles by applying pressure and stretching the area, allowing better circulation. It relieves tension and pain, allowing you to move more freely.

Our massage specialists can help identify the source of your pain and use their skills to provide effective relief. We can also recommend specific exercises and stretches to help maintain the results of your massage.

2. Stress Relief

Stress can lead to various health problems, including depression and anxiety. These can also manifest themselves as maladies, such as headaches and fatigue. Relaxing the body requires the mind to calm down as well.

A Korean massage relaxes the muscles and the mind, resulting in a calmer state of being that can reduce stress and fatigue. We can help you to connect with your inner peace and leave our spa feeling refreshed.

3. Improved Posture

Stiffness and pain in the back, neck, and shoulders can affect your posture. Poor posture can not only make you look slouched, but it can also lead to more severe issues such as chronic pain.

Our Asian massage helps improve posture by releasing tension and stretching the muscles, allowing for a more aligned and improved posture. It can also help you stay mindful of your posture, making it easier to maintain the correct form after leaving our spa.

4. Better Sleep

Poor sleep leads to many problems, such as lack of energy, poor concentration, and weakened immunity. You need your body and mind relaxed to get a good night’s sleep. Our professional masseuses can help you relax your muscles and calm your mind, allowing for better rest. They apply pressure in tense places, resulting in a deep relaxation that helps you drift off into a restful sleep.

5. Enhanced Immune System

A poor immune system can lead to frequent illnesses such as colds and flu. Your body is weak and vulnerable to minor illnesses if the immune system malfunctions. Our Korean massage can help stimulate the lymphatic system, increasing the circulation of oxygenated blood and allowing the body’s natural healing processes to take over. This results in a stronger immune system, reducing your risk of minor illnesses and speeding up your recovery time.
