The Swedish Massage is the best-known and most common type of massage in the US. It is the foundation for most other Western massage such as deep tissue massage, sports massage and aromatherapy massage. It is based on a concept of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to the Asian massage system of energy work on “meridiens” or sen lines.
The Deep Tissue Massage is another form of the Swedish Massage. It is more vigorous and bracing and works deeper on the muscle tissue to achieve results. If you can tolerate more pressure, this variation of sports massage can get you relief from chronic muscle pain. Book your Deep Tissue Massage with our therapist today to start feeling results!
One of the specialty massages known as the Hot Stone Massage is where the therapist uses smooth, volcanic stones that have been smoothed by the earths natural forces to create a deep relaxing massage. The heated stones become an extension of their own hands or they just place them on the body to help warm tight muscles so the therapist can work deeper and more quickly. The hot stone massage isn’t good if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or have medication that thins your blood.
