Swedish Massage is often referred to as the “relaxing massage.” I will use light to firm pressure with a range of long, smooth strokes. I also will use a combination of kneading and friction for the more superficial layers of the muscle tissue and can combine active and passive movements of the joints.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage can release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow deep strokes on any contacted areas and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons, and fascia. It is called deep tissue because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It can help reduce pain, increase the range of motion, relieve muscle spasms and improve circulation.
Prenatal Massage is a special type of massage therapy tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women. Many women find that pregnancy massage helps to minimize stress, promote relaxation and help with lower back pain.
