Types of Massage

  • Swedish massage: This form of massage utilizes long strokes, kneading, tapping, deep circular movements, and even vibration to relax and energize your body.
  • Deep tissue massage: This form of massage uses slow, almost forceful strokes to get down to the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is commonly used to aid muscle healing from injuries.
  • Sports massage: This is very similar to Swedish massage, but it’s targeted toward those involved in athletic activities to help prevent and treat injury.
  • Trigger point massage: This form of massage focuses on areas where the muscle fibers are tightly bunched, these can result from injury or overuse.
  • Chair massage: This type of massage takes place in a portable chair. The patient sits leaning forward with their head supported, giving the massage therapist full access to their shoulders, neck and back.
  • More specialized types of massage include lymphatic drainage massage, massage for chronic headaches, TMJ dysfunction massage, and even massage for plantar faciitis!
