This Simple Enhancement Will Maximize Your Massage

Our unique Tension Release Treatment is one of our best discoveries.

The Tension Release Treatment is a session enhancement using a blend of massage oil and AromaTouch. We offer it as either a spot or a full body treatment. Add it to your session when your massage online. 

The spot treatment focuses on specific areas that need improvement, whereas the full body treatment has the blend applied on the body throughout the entire session. The blend is made up of several different essential oils. The mixture consists of:

Peppermint essential oils add a crisp and sharp fragrance while feeling cool and soothing on the skin.

  • Lavender–the most versatile of all essential oils. With its floral fragrance, Lavender helps you relax and unwind.
  • Basil–creates a sense of balance and calms your mind.
  • Cypress–adds an evergreen aroma and restores feelings of security and stability. Cypress is also beneficial for oily or troubled skin.
  • Marjoram–produces a warming effect on both mind and body.
  • Peppermint–another basic essential oil used to relieve head pressure
  • Grapefruit–good for removing acne and toxins from the body.
  • Lemon grass–supports overall well-being.

This blend of essential oils generates a sweet, woodsy, herbal scent. You’ll feel as though you dove deep into the heart of a springy evergreen forest.

Who needs it?
The purpose of tension release treatment is found in the name of the enhancement itself. It provides a more deep and meaningful massage without the therapists diving in with forearms and elbows. If you’re coming in to recover from an intense day at work, our tension release treatment will leave you feeling even more satisfied compared to a massage alone.

Tension Release Treatment is also great for those who come in to simply relax. The enhancement’s stress relieving effect calms the mind. Since our mind controls our body, you’ll find yourself in a deep peace. After all, our goal here at GLM is to provide the best experience for our clients.

The therapist behind the formulation of our Tension Release Treatment is Kylee Davis, the co-owner of the Good Life Massage. Kylee knew that the body and mind are connected: if one was feeling beat, so would the other. Most people associate relaxation with doing nothing. Not so. Real relaxation takes effort. Your mind is constantly on the go. This makes the enhancement perfect for those who run on a “one speed-fast” mind.

When asked why she would recommend clients adding on a Tension Release Treatment to their session she replied, “I am able to get through their superficial issues faster and access deeper tissue easier.”

Tension release is one of those little extras that make your massage even more beneficial and satisfying.

A Little Known Massage Upgrade You Have to Try: HFS Upgrade

At GLM, we’re most well-known for our Swedish or Deep Tissue full-body massages. Full body means back, neck, arms, legs, and feet. In most cases, our therapists spend most of their time working the back, neck, and shoulders, as these are most often the sites of discomfort and chronic pain.

Sometimes, though, other places need some attention, too. In addition to your standard full body massage, consider adding the HFS Upgrade as an enhancement when booking your session.

What is an HFS Upgrade?
HFS stands for Hands, Feet, or Scalp. These are areas that may get a little attention during a regular session, but which you may want to give some extra TLC when you come in.

Hands
Whether you’re a carpenter or just type a computer all day, your hands go through a lot. Thank them for all that they do for you with fifteen minutes of focused care.

Your massage therapist will work each hand methodically and thoroughly, making sure every muscle is soothed and relaxed.

Feet
Your feet are one of your body’s hardest-working body parts. These miracles of nature manage to bear your full weight, not to mention about a thousand pounds of air pressure from the atmosphere, all while getting you everywhere you want to go without falling on your face.

They deserve the very best.

When you choose feet for your HFS Upgrade, your feet will get fifteen blissful minutes of your therapist’s undivided attention. You’ll practically be able to feel the tension drain out our every over-worked muscle as aches and pains melt away.

Scalp
Have you ever had your hair washed at a salon or a barber shop? This is a little like that, but without all the water and shampoo. Scalp massage is both soothing and beneficial.

  • Improves blood flow in the head and neck area
  • Conditions and lubricates the scalp, which helps reduce dry scalp and flaking
  • Lowers stress and stimulates the follicles.
  • Regular scalp massage has even been shown to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.

Whatever focus area you choose, you won’t regret adding an HFS Upgrade to your session. Keep in mind that you have to add this to your session at least a day in advance of your appointment since this adds some time. You won’t be able to add this upgrade at the last minute.

Too add this upgrade, just select it from the menu in addition to your regular massage session when booking.
