A Swedish massage is one of the most common forms of massage. The massage therapist will use soft, long strokes for kneading the muscle tissue. They may also use lighter, rhythmic, or tapping strokes. This type focuses on the top layers of muscles to help relieve muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage uses more pressure than other types of massage. During a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist uses deep finger pressure to release muscle tension, knots, and trigger points.
The pressure focuses on reaching the deeper layers of muscles, fascia, and connective tissue. During the massage, the pressure could feel intense, but it shouldn’t be painful. Still, it might leave you feeling a little sore for a couple of days, similar to an intense workout.
This type of massage is a good option for people with chronic muscle pain, soreness, back pain, and imbalances.
Trigger point massage
Trigger point massage combines aspects of acupressure used in acupuncture and deep tissue massage. Trigger point massages focus on specific pressure points in the body to help release muscles and blood flow through the body.
The massage therapist may focus more on problem areas or work throughout the whole body with this style. This type of massage works best for people with injuries, chronic pain, muscle conditions, or people with muscle tension.
An aromatherapy massage is best for people who want an added mental health boost to their massage. This form of massage uses essential oils along with Swedish massage techniques. Your therapist may have a specific type of oil they normally use, or you may be able to give a preference for the type of scent used.
A sports massage is a targeted type of massage focused on muscles used frequently in that sport. It may help to reduce sports injuries, increase flexibility, and improve soreness. This can be helpful since most sports require repeated movements and increase the risk for some injuries (like tennis elbow).
Sports massages can be focused on particular parts of the body, or you can ask the massage therapist to do a full body massage.
This type of massage is best for athletes or people who do repetitive movements.
Shiatsu massage is a Japanese form of massage that focuses on finger pressure. During a shiatsu massage, the massage therapist will use varied and rhythmic pressure at precise points of the body. Practitioners of Shiatsu massage believe stimulating the acupressure points helps the flow of your body’s energy and relieves blockages.
Shiatsu massage may help with pain, muscle soreness, and anxiety. This type of massage may be best for people who want to feel more relaxed, relieve stress, and reduce muscle tension.
