MASSAGE THERAPY STYLES

Swedish Massage

 

Swedish massage combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to break up muscle knots, called adhesions. Swedish massage can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on what the client and therapist are looking to achieve.

Deep Tissue Massage

 

An integrative massage modality that uses various techniques such as Swedish massage, Myofascial Release, trigger point therapy and sustained deep pressure to relieve severe tension in the muscles and fascia.

Amma Therapy

 

Amma Therapy is a classic form of Oriental massage therapy that utilizes acupressure point release, muscular releases, and deeper treatment of the fascia. By releasing patterns of physical distress, Amma enables health and healing, including a state of relaxation and well-being.
