Swedish massage is the most common and best known type of massage. If it is your first time or don't get a massage very often then Swedish massage is the perfect massage for you! Benefits include: relaxation, improving blood circulation and flexibility, decreasing muscle toxins, and easing tension.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and technique as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. This works well for releasing deep chronic tension.
Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. Proper sports massage should concentrate on increasing range of motion and flexibility, relieving muscle soreness, and prompting a quick recovery from muscle overuse.
Rejuvenating Touch Massage Therapy
Aromatherapy massage uses essential oils derived from plants to effect your mood and help alleviate pain. When an essential oil is inhaled, the molecules enter the nasal cavity and stimulates the limbic system in the brain.
Deep heat therapy focuses on a concentrated area to help release the tension and knots more effectively and efficiently.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage used with smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of our own hands, or by placing on a specific area of the body. The heat from the stones can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles.
