Relaxation massage is all about relaxing! It focuses on helping the client recover from the stresses of daily life. As our days get shorter because our lives get busier, we forget to take the time out we need to destress. This can have serious side effects. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy a relaxing massage because it produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
Swedish massage is a technique which soothes and relaxes the body to give a great sensation of overall wellbeing. It is ideal for specific physical problems such as muscle tension, tendon and ligament problems, Swedish massage can be used to relax muscles after physical exertion or to warm and loosen them in preparation for exercise, and it is also a great mental and emotional stress reliever.
Deep Tissue Massage
Sometimes pain and pleasure go so well together. You will feel intense sensations during a Deep Tissue Massage as it works to realign deep muscle layers and connective tissue. This type of massage physically breaks down muscle knots to relieve pain and ensure your muscles are moving normally. To do this, the massage therapist uses massage oil and strong direct deep pressure.
Sports massage is based on Swedish massage but also uses other more intensive techniques for the prevention and the treatment of sports injuries.
