WHAT IS mASSAGE?

Performed by a licensed massage therapist, massage therapy involves using different pressures, movements and techniques to manipulate muscles and other soft tissues in the body.

Swedish/Therapeutic Massage

A Swedish massage is one of the most common forms of massage. The massage therapist will use soft, long strokes for kneading the muscle tissue. They may also use lighter, rhythmic, or tapping strokes. This type focuses on the top layers of muscles to help relieve muscle tension. 

Massage techniques used in a Swedish massage include:

  • Effleurage—a smooth stroke focused on relaxing soft tissue
  • Tapotement—a short, alternating tapping motion
  • Friction—deep, circular motions causing layers of tissue to rub together, increasing blood flow and breaking down scar tissue
  • Petrissage—a squeezing, lifting, or kneading motion

Swedish massages may be better for people who are new to massage or sensitive to touch since it uses lighter pressure. It’s a good option for people looking to release muscle tension and soreness

Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage uses more pressure than other types of massage. During a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist uses deep finger pressure to release muscle tension, knots, and trigger points. The pressure focuses on reaching the deeper layers of muscles, fascia, and connective tissue. During the massage, the pressure could feel intense, but it shouldn’t be painful. Still, it might leave you feeling a little sore for a couple of days, similar to an intense workout. This type of massage is a good option for people with chronic muscle pain, soreness, back pain, and imbalances.

Sports Massage

A sports massage is a targeted type of massage focused on muscles used frequently in that sport. It may help to reduce sports injuries, increase flexibility, and improve soreness. This can be helpful since most sports require repeated movements and increase the risk for some injuries (like tennis elbow).

Sports massages can be focused on particular parts of the body, or you can ask the massage therapist to do a full body massage. This type of massage is best for athletes or people who do repetitive movements.

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point massage combines aspects of acupressure used in acupuncture and deep tissue massage. Trigger point massages focus on specific pressure points in the body to help release muscles and blood flow through the body. The massage therapist may focus more on problem areas or work throughout the whole body with this style. This type of massage works best for people with injuries, chronic pain, muscle conditions, or people with muscle tension.
