This is the most common type of massage therapy in the United States. It is also known as Swedish massage
or simply massage therapy. Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on
superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil.
Swedish massage therapy can be very gentle and relaxing. If you've never had massage before,
this is a good one to try first.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist
uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for
chronically tight or painful muscles. Some people may feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
Hot Stone Massage
Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance
energy centers in the body. The massage therapist may also hold stones and apply gentle pressure with them.
The warmth is comforting. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage.
