What is the difference between the types of massage?
Deep tissue massage is designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles. Therapists use strong muscle compression and friction to unstick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension. Deep tissue massage is good for back pain, neck pain, and persistent muscle tightness.
Swedish massage is meant to soothe. It combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to break up muscle knots. It's a relaxing, full-body massage for when you want to unwind. Swedish massage is particularly good for migraines and insomnia.
Prenatal massage is ideal for easing the discomfort of pregnancy for moms-to-be. Your specially-trained therapist will use a combination of techniques aimed at easing pelvic and back pain, reducing swelling and enhancing overall well-being.
Sports massage, despite its name, isn't just for top athletes. Combining deep tissue and assisted stretching, it’s a great healing technique for anyone who wants to decrease muscle soreness, improve flexibility and increase range of motion.
Sleep massage, as you might expect, is perfect for people who want to enjoy a deeper, more restful sleep, or who need to reset their internal clock.
