Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage usually involves slow movements and concentrated pressure on muscle, intended to relieve a client of chronic tension and knots. A session can be moderately uncomfortable, and several sessions may be necessary to alleviate chronic tension.

Swedish

 

Swedish massage, considered the most common form of massage, uses variant pressure to promote relaxation, relieve muscle aches, and improves circulation. The practitioner may use gliding strokes, tapping, kneading, and friction. 

Sports Massage

Any person who engages in a regular exercise or sports routine can benefit from sports massage. An individual may be seeking to enhance performance before an event, or help to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after an event. Also, increasing flexibility and or decreasing the likelihood of injury are linked to the sports massage modality. Common issues include Tennis elbow, hamstring discomfort, or pain while running.
