Sometimes it can be confusing – you’re stressed and and your body is achy and everybody tells you that you need a good massage, but what type of massage should you get? There are so many options available, how do you know which one will suit you?
That’s where your massage therapist can help– if you’re not sure, just give us a call and we can help you find the perfect technique and style for your needs. If it’s your first massage, we can put you at ease and make sure you know exactly what to expect. You can also read through our FAQs for some more info. In the meantime, here’s the lowdown on some of the different types of massage we offer and what they can do for you.
This is one of the most popular massages – it’s absolutely great for getting rid of stress. It’s also a good one to try if you’re new to massage as it doesn’t work too deeply into your muscles and the techniques we use are all designed to relax. So what can you expect? Well, we use long, flowing strokes all over your body, combined with kneading, tapping and circular motions. We’ll also use oils or lotions to make the massage smoother, and feel great for you. If you’ve got tight muscles, aches and pains, we can increase the pressure a bit where you need it more.
Therapeutic massage is helpful if you’re experiencing muscle soreness, or issues like back pain or sciatica, and it can also give your circulation a boost as all the techniques are designed to help get blood pumping around your body. It's a deeper, more focused massage to address areas of chronic tension and pain. We will use more pressure, and might use our fists and forearms to lengthen your muscles, and release adhesions in your tissues. If you've got areas of concern that you need addressed, this is the massage for you.
Hot Stone Massage
This is a supremely relaxing massage where the therapist uses specially designed warmed stones to increase its effects. This one is an indulgent treatment that’s also great for first-timers. While you’re enjoying your massage, we carefully use the smooth, heated stones on different areas of your body. Unlike in all the pictures you see where the stones are just sitting on someone's back, we actually use them as part of the massage to help get deeper into any troublesome areas; the heat from the stones helps loosen the muscles even more. This one will leave you feeling calm and relaxed.
Deep Tissue Massage
This is more of a remedial massage than a relaxing one; ideal for anyone who is very active or has very tight muscles. It can feel uncomfortable as your therapist will work deeply into your muscles and connective tissues to release any tension in them. We will perform deep, slow strokes with our fists, forearms, and elbows. It can feel slightly painful although people tend to describe it as a ‘good hurt.' However, we pay close attention to your verbal and non-verbal signals. We will always adjust the pressure to your comfort! We want you to feel better, and if your muscles are clenching due to pain, that defeats the purpose of the treatment! You may feel a bit of soreness afterwards, especially if it’s your first deep tissue massage, but stretching and drinking plenty of water will help. Most people agree that it’s worth it as you’ll feel amazing afterwards!

It's amazing to learn that deep tissue massage could help you recover from injuries. My brother had an injury at work, and he ha been thinking of getting a massage. He will be thrilled about getting a deep tissue massage to reduce the pain from the accident.

As you mentioned, a deep tissue massage is more to release any tension that you may have built up in your muscles. My husband has had some muscle tightness in his back for awhile now. It seems like a deep tissue massage may be the best option for him to alleviate that tightness.

I like your tip about feeling sore afterwards. I need a deep tissue massage for my neck. It tends to spasm because it is so tight.

Swedish massage is a gentle type of full-body massage that’s ideal for people. It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.

I never knew it’s absolutely great for getting rid of stress. My aunt is trying to find someone who could massage her so that she could relax. I should share this post with her about massage solutions so that she could have an idea of what to do.

I've been looking for ideas on how to help my mom unwind and destress after a stressful week from work. I never knew that a deep tissue massage could provide muscle pain relief while allowing her to relax. I'll be sure to share this idea with her so she could try it out.

I found it interesting when you said it's also a wonderful one to try if you're new to massage because it doesn't go too deep into your muscles and the methods we employ all aim to calm you. I used to think differently about it not until you explained it briefly and it really got my attention. What you said about the massage was really interesting to me.

There are so many different types of massages to choose from, it can be hard to know which one is right. I tried a Swedish massage and it was one of the best massages I ever had. I know for certain that most of the massages will feel the same if not even better.
It's interesting to know that a deep tissue massage session would be great for people who have an active lifestyle and tight muscles. I will suggest this to my husband because he has been mentioning about his back pain for a week now. He definitely has tight muscles because he can't reach his feet when we try stretching at times, so this should be a sign that this type of treatment is best for him.

I love that you talked about relieving stress with the help of relaxation massage options which are popular with most people. I think I already need that kind of service now that I have been really busy these past two weeks due to processing the house that I wanted to buy. It would probably be a good idea to ask professionals if the Swedish massage treatment would be able to provide that kind of experience, since I am interested in that kind of therapy.
