Swedish massageis the most commonly offered massage technique, utilizing a firm pressure on the muscles. It involves a series of long yet gliding strokes. A Swedish massage may involve the use of various oils, especially essential oils, to reduce friction as well as for their aromatherapy benefits.
Swedish massage increases blood circulation, easing the tension in the body’s muscles and improves the muscles’ flexibility. It stimulates the skin as well as the nervous system to soothe the nerves, reducing both emotional and physical stress.
A Swedish massage is given to help with increasing the flow of oxygen in the blood, releasing toxins from the body’s muscles flushing the lactic acids, uric acids, and other types of metabolic wastes out of the body tissues. It can really shorten the recovery time for a muscular strain!!
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that aims at affecting the deeper tissue structure of the muscles. Deep tissue massage helps with both small muscle injuries as well as chronic problems. Deep tissue massage is an excellent way to deal with a whiplash or sports injury, postural misalignment, treating spasms as well as muscle tension. During a deep tissue massage, the therapist concentrates on releasing specific chronic muscle tension as well as the muscular knots, or adhesions.
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
Acupressure is performed using fingers, palms, elbows or feet, or special devices to apply pressure to acupoints on the body's meridians. Acupressure also involves stretching or acupressure massage, as well as other methods.
The goal of acupressure is to restore health and balance to the body's channels of energy and to regulate the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Acupressure not only treats the energy fields and body but also the mind, emotions, and spirit.
