Swedish massage is the most common and well-known type of massage, as it is perfect for newcomers and those who don’t get massages very often. A Swedish massage incorporates many different techniques to provide all-over soft tissue and muscle tension release, which supports overall health and wellness. Afterward, you’ll sure to feel refreshed and energized, as well as enjoy a reduction in tension-related pain and discomfort.
Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage is slower, more targeted, and more forceful than a Swedish massage. The intent is to get at the deeper muscles and connective tissues (fascia) to help them relax and loosen up. It is often used to address chronic aches and pain or for recovery after injuries as it is very effective at breaking up scar tissue and “knots.”
Sports massages are similar to Swedish massages in that they both use firm, repetitive strokes to refresh and loosen tight muscles, particularly in areas where muscles, tendons, and joints meet. Sports massage is used both to heal and prevent injuries in athletes, which is why your massage therapist may focus only on the area of the body that you use the most.
Prenatal massage is an excellent way to promote circulation, relieve joint stress, and relieve pregnancy discomforts such as back pain, headaches, leg swelling, and stiff neck muscles. Massages are customized to the mother’s specific needs or discomforts and special cushions and pillows are used to alleviate strain on the lower back and abdomen during the massage.
