Typically, these regions include the back of the leg and hips, the entire musculature of the back and shoulders and the chronically tight muscles surrounding the neck. Thermal Palms massage is most suitable for clients in need of a deeply relaxing full body massage.  Although firm pressure massage techniques can be included, the focus is to provide a deeper sense of physical relaxation and mental calm.  The Thermal Palms massage is ideal for those suffering from signs and symptoms of general stress, anxiety, insomnia, and fibromyalgia.
