Swedish massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
A traditional Swedish massage involves the whole body. You will begin on either your back or your stomach and flip over at the halfway point.
If you have an area of particular concern, such as a tight neck, you can ask request to spend more time in this area.
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Sports massage was developed to help athletes prepare for optimal performance, recover after an event, or to function well during training. This type of massage is a targeted massage approach that focuses on specific areas of the body that are in need of healing or relief.
From serious athletes to weekend warriors, adding elements of sports massage to your next session can enhance flexibility, help you recover from competition, and help prevent injuries from occurring.
If you have a sports-related ache or injury or are looking to take your game to the next level, request this type of massage.
Studies show that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Prenatal massages are generally considered safe after the first trimester, as long as you get the green light from your practitioner.
While every pregnancy is unique, the changes to the body as a baby grows often cause discomfort. A pregnancy massage can help relieve some of these symptoms along with other benefits for the parent-to-be.
Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short — 10 or 15 minutes — and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Client stays fully dressed in a seated massage chair.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. It is believed that the suction created by the cup encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain. Because cupping brings blood and other nutrients to the skin’s surface, you can expect to see a visible color change and glow to your appearance after a few sessions.
Cupping therapy is performed with my own personal line of high quality cupping products which can be purchased at Cupping USA.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body.
Heat has long been used to ease muscle tension and pain. It helps increase blood flow to the affected area. It may also reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility and range of motion.
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet.
In reflexology, pressure is applied to specific reflex points on the foot. These points correspond to organs and areas of the body. The treatment is said to induce a healing response, even alleviating some ailments.
Beyond the feel-good effects of the treatment, the practice and purpose go deeper than the skin and muscles. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the movements you’ll experience during a treatment.
