Types of Massage

The most common type of massage. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.  

Deep Tissue:
Understanding the layers of the body, and the ability to work with tissue in these layers to relax, lengthen, and release holding patterns in the most effective and energy efficient way possible.  

Form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan that means "finger pressure". Uses kneading, pressing and soothing tapping on acupressure points of the body, as well as stretching techniques. In Shiatsu, acupressure points are important for the flow of the body's vital energy called chi. This type of massage can help relieve blockages at corresponding acupressure points. Shiatsu is performed without lotions/oils and through light, comfortable clothing.
