Traditional Swedish Massage:
The purpose of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. Swedish massage improves blood circulation, increases the level of oxygen in the blood, helps the body removes toxins, improves flexibility, eases tension and helps with pain management.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
This type of massage is often relaxing, but the end goal of this session is not relaxation, it is more therapeutic in nature. This massage is for someone with a physical injury. It will improve muscle tone, increase flexibility and loosen muscles. Likewise, it can be used to supplement cancer care, wound care, and many other treatments.
All types involve working with the body to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress and evoke feelings of calmness.
