What Are The Different Types?
Swedish Massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
Sports Massage is manual manipulation of the muscles geared specifically toward helping people who have physically demanding lifestyles and/or hobbies. This kind of therapeutic massage considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue.
Neuromuscular Massage is a highly-specialized form of manual therapy that corrects pain and dysfunction by treating trigger points, muscle adhesions, and fascial (connective tissue) patterns.
Spa Massage is a Swedish, Sports, or Neuromuscular Massage that includes Hot Stones, Hot Towels, Body Scrubs, Paraffin Wax Treatment, or Mud Treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage centers on realigning the deeper layers of connective and muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the tense areas. It is particularly helpful for continually tight and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
