Classic Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is one of the most popular massages in the U.S. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health, using long flowing strokes. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood and lymphatic fluid flow, mental and physical relaxation, decreased stress and muscle tension. Depending upon preference, this massage can range from a light to deep technique.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage aims to affect the deeper tissue structure of the fascia and muscles. This technique directly affects the connective tissues – tissues that surround, protect and support all other structures in the body. Swedish massage and deep tissue massage have many movements in common but they differ in pressures used, the latter one uses more intense pressure and more structural work. This technique is effective in releasing restrictions in the muscles. This technique can be used to release adhesions in the surrounding connective tissue. One should never be under the perception that if the therapist uses more intense pressure then he will be relieved from all the adhesions in an hour's time. It also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. This technique gets at the heart of the problem and helps the muscles and connective tissue in eliminating toxins and circulating blood and oxygen. It is recommended to drink lots of water after the session to help the body to eliminate the toxins.

Pregnancy Massage

There are so many changes your body and mind go through over a short amount of time when carrying a child. Massage can help with swelling and pain you may have throughout your pregnancy. Sometimes all of the hormonal changes leave you feeling like you are on an emotional roller coaster. Massage reduces your stress, leaving you in a state of relaxation and calm acceptance of your continually evolving body.
