Stressed Body and Mind

First Aid for a
Stressed Body and Mind

Brain Relief® is a profoundly relaxing contact therapy treatment that gives the body and the mind a moment of calm and a chance to relax.

The treatment provides an oasis amid long-term, uninterrupted stress. It balances the activity of the autonomic nervous system and supports the body’s natural recovery mechanisms.

Brain Relief treatment was developed in Finland in the 2000s by Mr. Jouko Kivimetsä. It combines millennia of Asian and Finnish contact, pressing, massage, and relaxation techniques, with new insights.

Brain Relief itself does not intend to treat any ailment or illness. The goal of this treatment is deep relaxation, and the consequences for the body and mind are always individual.

You can simply BE

You do not need to do anything during the treatment. You can just be.

You can rest on the massage table on your back throughout the treatment to maximize the relaxation effect. You can wear regular daywear, preferably a simple t-shirt, casual pants, and thin socks. Please take off any earrings, necklaces, and bracelets before the treatment.

Brain Relief treatment covers the head, face, shoulder and neck area, hands, and feet. It includes a wide range of different kinds of touches, from gentle and light to some that create the most pleasant cold shivers; petting, pressing, holding, rubbing, massaging, gentle wiping, scratching, etc. All are gentle, soft, pleasant, and many particularly slow.

Carefully selected music is an essential part of Brain Relief treatment. The music supports the effect of the treatment, and the touches and the progression of the treatment is integrated into the music. The customer may wish to request silence if they feel it is more relaxing. There is no discussion during the actual treatment.

The treatment takes 50 minutes, but it is a good idea to set aside at least an hour for the appointment so that you can get up slowly, take it easy and enjoy the relaxed feeling. At the first appointment, there’s little extra time for an initial interview to ensure there are no barriers to treatment.

The treatment enhances the metabolism and fluid circulation in the body, so drink plenty of water on the day of treatment to avoid headaches or malaise.
