Swedish Massage By far the most popular form of massage, Swedish Massage is so common that it’s often referred to generically as “relaxation massage” or even just simply “massage.” Techniques are specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Popularized by early 19 th century Swedish fencing master and gymnastics teacher Henrik Ling, a variety of strokes and pressure techniques are used to enhance the flow of blood to the heart, release toxins from the muscles and tissues, stretch ligaments and tendons and ease physical and emotional tension
Deep Tissue Massage This type of massage is targeted at muscles that have been strained or are related to chronic pain or posture problems. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesions.")The therapist targets deep layers of muscles and connective tissue by using short strokes and intense pressure. It’s not uncommon for clients to feel sore for several days after such a deep tissue massage session, but the benefits can be well worth it.
Will A Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?
It shouldn't hurt, but it's likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you.
How Fast Will I Get Results With A Deep Tissue Massage?
It's important to be realistic about what one massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour. This just won't happen. In fact, undoing chronic knots and tension built up over a lifetime is best achieved with an integrated program that includes exercise, work on your posture and ways of moving, relaxation techniques and a regular program of massage.
