All massages are available in 30, 60 or 90 minute sessions. All include a complimentary consultation to see which massage is the best fit for you and your body’s needs.
The Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Additional massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching.
It is suggested that an individual gets a 75 or 90-minute massage, that gives the therapist more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve results. If you want deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic muscle pain, it’s better to book a deep tissue massage, which is another form of Swedish massage. This can be determined in the consultation before the service.
Deep tissue massage:
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. That concentrates on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) Recommended by many doctors as a treatment option. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments. deep-tissue massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than conventional medical remedies. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep-tissue massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.
