Even those who may not be familiar with the different types of massage therapy may be familiar with Swedish massage. Arguably the most prominent type of massage therapy offered across the States, Swedish massage utilizes long, smooth strokes across aching muscles. Your massage therapist will gently knead and implement circular movements atop muscles using either lotion or oil to reduce friction and provide a relaxing aromatic environment. If you’re new to the world of massage therapy or are looking for a relaxing and effective massage therapy technique to assist with chronic or episodic pain, then Swedish massage is an excellent starting point.
Many of us have pains that are locked away, deep inside our aching muscles. These pains could be the accumulation of years of poor posture, a traumatic event, or simply less-than-ideal lifestyle habits. However they got there, those pains need to be treated to allow for improved quality of life. For these pains, we offer our deep tissue massage services. This massage therapy approach targets the muscles and connective tissues that lie deeper in our bodies. While Swedish massage utilizes long strokes, deep tissue massage employs slow, friction-reliant strokes to reach those deep pains. This massage therapy technique is an excellent choice for those who experience chronic pain from tight muscles, repetitive strain, poor posture, or injury recovery.
Body Insight Method
Designed by Gary Salinger at Healing Arts Institute, the Body Insight method involves the patient taking deep breaths and performing restricted movement while the massage therapist employs pressure to the restricted area. This approach is a corrective bodywork technique that helps “unglue” muscles that have become tense or rigid. Moreover, this massage therapy technique decreases tension and pain to provide more efficient movement, ultimately balancing the body.
