Swedish Massage

This is the most common form of massage, developed by Per Henrik Ling, a Swedish medical-gymnastic practitioner with wide ranging interests in the human body and the soul.

There are five strokes of Swedish massage:

  • Effleurage
  • Petrissage
  • Friction
  • Tapotement
  • Vibration

This massage is combined with active and passive movement of the muscles and joint. This treatment will help you feel physical healing and mental relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage

This type of massage focuses on the deeper layer of the muscles and connective tissue. Generally the therapist works only with certain painful areas during one session.

When the muscles are stressed or overused there are adhesions in the muscles that block the proper blood circulation. Lots of toxins then build up in the muscles causing pain, stiffness and reduced mobility.

The Deep Tissue Massage helps to restore the normal blood circulation and remove the toxins as well.

After a deep tissue massage it is important to drink plenty of water to help with elimination of toxins. You may experience some pain after the massage, but it will subside shortly.

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

This massage technique helps to reduce the edema (swelling) in the body. Swelling occurs in the body when the flow of the lymphatic fluid is blocked.

There are two types of lymphedema:

  • Inherited lymphedema:

This usually appears during adolescence and affects the legs mostly in the elderly.

  • Acquired lymphedema:

Your lymphatic system is affected after surgery or injury.

You will feel the great benefit of this massage right away. You may be thirsty, so ensure to drink plenty of fresh water after the session.
