Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses a system of long gliding strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, generally in the direction of the blood flow toward the heart because there is an emphasis on improving blood flow to the soft tissues and is sometimes combined with active and passive movements of the joints.

Swedish treatments promote general relaxation, improve circulation, improve range of motion, and alleviate muscle tension.

 

 

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue work releases chronic patterns of muscular tension using slow strokes, direct pressure or friction directed across the grain of the muscles employing fingers, thumbs or elbows. It is applied with greater pressure to deeper layers of muscle, and with greater specificity then Swedish Massage, which is why it is called Deep Tissue Massage.

In many areas of the body, the muscles are arranged in layers and sometimes the deeper muscles need to be worked on. Deep tissue Massage techniques are designed to do just that.

 

Injury or Sports Massage

Injury or Sports Massage is a combination of techniques focusing on muscle spasms, overworked or fatigued muscles or injured muscle. It is also beneficial for areas of stress in other muscles created through compensation for an injury.

This form of massage can increase range of motion, relaxation and circulation. It can also decrease adhesions, swelling and pain. Injury or Sports Massage is a great addition of care to help shorten the healing time needed for overworked or injured muscles.
