This classic and more delicate style of massage promotes relaxation, overall wellness and is known to decrease muscle tension brought about by stress, ordinary exercises and everyday activities such as sitting at a computer and any actual work that causes discomfort or pain.
This type of massage targets the shallow superficial layers of muscle and spotlights on regions that will in general hold most tension like the neck, back and shoulders. Swedish massage includes utilising the palms, fingers and forearm combined with techniques such as; soft palpitation, kneading, long flowing strokes, deep circular motions, tapping, rolling of the skin and passive joint movement techniques, to assist in releasing tight muscles, knots and help reduce symptomatic pain.
Swedish massage is ideal for people who are new to massage and for anyone who is looking to destress, maintain general well-being or just unwind and purely relax.
This is a firm type of massage therapy that focuses on treating and relieving pain, stress and anxiety. Deep tissue uses movements and stokes that are used in Swedish massage, but with more slower movements and deeper pressure that focuses on the areas of tension.
Deep tissue massage helps loosen knots that have developed from stressed, overloaded muscles and connective tissue to reduce pain. Deep tissue techniques such as stretching, kneading, stripping and rubbing are used with the palms, fingers, forearm, knuckles and elbows to apply pressure and compression to manipulate the soft tissues and target the deep inner layers of the muscles where there is tension and there are complaints.
Deep tissue massage promotes general well-being and healing in the body by increasing blood flow, lowering blood pressure and reducing inflammation. Deep tissue massage is ideal for people who like to feel “good” pain during massage and who do a lot of physical activity or suffer from headaches, chronic pain, muscle and tendon tension.
