With more than a dozen types of therapeutic massage to choose from, chances are good that you’ll find a rub that’s right for you.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber’s of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
Swedish Style Massage
Swedish massage is what most people think of when massage is mentioned. It is a relaxing style using long strokes, kneading and passive movements. This style promotes deep relaxation, relieves general muscle tension, and increases circulation of blood and lymph.
