Swedish massage is primarily used to improve overall health. A Swedish massage is a massage style that combines long, flowing strokes with fast vigorous yet soothing strokes to help stimulate circulation, and to break muscle knots. Perfect for those who are looking to relax, reduce stress, relieve muscle tension, and soreness. The speed and strength applied by the therapist can vary greatly depending on what kind of problems and muscle knots are found. A good Swedish massage helps with certain physical conditions, such as muscle pain or joint stiffness. You can request for light, medium or firm pressure. Benefits of Swedish massage may include enhanced relaxation, a reduction in stress, better blood flow, decrease anxiety and reduced blood pressure.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage aims to breakdown adhesions in the tissue, thereby restoring healthy blood circulation. By using lengthening and broadening strokes, those similar to Swedish massage, but are performed slower and with greater pressure to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, it can decrease muscle tension, and relieve pain throughout the entire body. It is especially helpful for those who suffer from osteoarthritis, acute injury, chronic pain, limited mobility, repetitive stress injuries and fibromyalgia. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific musculoskeletal problem. Making a longer appointment will allow us to focus on multiple areas. You'll leave feeling looser and have an increased range of motion.
