Types of Massage

1. Swedish Massage

A Swedish massage is perhaps the most well-known type of massage, ideal for a first-time experience. The Swedish massage technique involves using long strokes, kneading, and gliding with light to firm pressure to ensure total body relaxation. 

Book a Swedish massage if you’re simply testing the waters of massage therapy, looking to reduce tension, or have no glaring issues to address.


2. Deep Tissue Massage

A step above a Swedish massage, the deep tissue massage uses more pressure and is aimed at releasing toxins built up in your muscles and blood. If you have muscle soreness, tightness, trigger points, or injury, the slow strokes and deep finger pressure reach the deepest layers of your muscles and tissue to relieve chronic pain.

If you’re in the light to medium pressure camp when it comes to a massage, a deep tissue massage can be too intense for you.


3. Aromatherapy Massage

If essential oils are a passion of yours, you’ll love an aromatherapy massage. Your massage therapist will use an essential oil diffuser and diluted essential oils on their hands so your skin can absorb the oils.

An aromatherapy massage can help boost your mood while easing your tension. Your massage therapist can suggest certain oils based on how you’re feeling, but be sure to let them know your favorites or any you might be allergic to.

4. Hot Stone Massage

A hot stone massage is another gentle massage to ease mental and physical tension. Much like a Swedish massage, it uses gentle pressure. But instead of just using their hands, your therapist will also use heated stones made of volcanic rock to help improve blood flow.

The stones are typically placed along your spine, feet, face, palms, and stomach. Cold stones may be used toward the end of the massage to soothe your skin.

A hot stone massage can also help ease chronic pain from arthritis or fibromyalgia.
