Three Massages You Need to Try

If you are new to the world of massage or are just looking for massages in Studio City, CA, here are some options at Dr. Berkley Skin + Body medi spa which we can’t recommend highly enough:

Swedish Massage
This is the most common and well known form of massage in the West. It is calming and rejuvenating. It is a good standard go-to for stress relief and it makes for an easy introduction to massage if it is your first time. It is done with oil and relatively gentle surface strokes. The oil should be warmed to skin temperature prior to being applied to you and a good therapist will communicate when they are about to start touching you so as to not startle you. Massage often starts with the shoulders and back and then proceeds on to the limbs.

Hot Stone Massage
This is a little more exotic and Eastern than the Swedish massage. It is something with which you may not be familiar. This is a deeply relaxing type of massage, in part because it seeps and reaches deep into the tissues of the muscles as the hot stones warm specific points. It is especially helpful for warming and loosening muscles. The stones may be used as part of the massage work or simply as a means to warm other muscles while the masseuse works. It is highly recommended prior to intense physical activity, like sports or more deep muscle massage therapies.

Wakame Seaweed, Mud and Salt Body Treatment
This is not actually a massage. It’s a body treatment. But it’s still really, really nice, and it is still a means to relieve stress and detoxify, which are both typical goals of a massage. It involves exfoliation of your skin with mud and a relaxing seaweed wrap. It is often coupled with a foot massage and can be followed up with a light shower to make sure you are squeaky clean and comfortable.

Take a look at all our options, and consider which might be best for you. But by all means, don’t wait to get a massage – the sooner you get one, the sooner you start feeling great!
