Deep tissue massage involves manipulation of the deep layers of tissue in the body, including the fascia and other supportive tissue that make up the muscles and joints. Compared to other popular massage techniques which tend to be lighter in pressure and can involve moving the body into certain positions — deep tissue massage is usually slower and firmer. Whether you’re an athlete with a daily high demand placed on your body or recovering from an injury or illness, deep tissue massage likely has some benefits to offer you.
Swedish massage is unquestionably one of the most recognized and popular massages techniques offered. During a Swedish massage, your therapist will first apply massage oil or lotion to your body and then employ long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. These purposeful movements help to warm your muscle tissue, release tension, and release those tight “knots” you may have been experiencing in your neck, shoulders, or back. Your therapist may also incorporate techniques, for example, circular pressure applied hands and palms, a firm kneading of the muscles, a percussion-like tapping, and stretching of the joints and muscles.
Hot stone massage therapy not only feels amazingly relaxing, it is known to provide a host of other benefits.. The use of hot stones allows you to achieve a deeper level of relaxation as the stones serve as a grounding force that makes it difficult to stay stressed very long. Hot stone massage has a calming effect that relieves pain, reduces stress and promotes deep relaxation. During you massage your therapist will place smooth, water-heated stones at key points along your body. By combining this element with other massage techniques you will receive an experience that provides the most healing. With regular hot stone massage sessions, you will begin to notice less pain and an improved ability for your body to handle stress. Hot stone massage melts away muscle tension as a result of heat. This allows your massage therapist to access deeper layers of muscle. The desired result is a relaxation of muscle tension that accompanies a host of other benefits including: Improved circulation, increased metabolism, chronic pain relief, fewer muscle spasms, improved joint flexibility and improved mood.
