Swedish massage is the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage. It was developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago and is the most common and best-known type form of performed today.
The goal is relaxing the entire body and this is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Additional techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Lotion or Oil is used to reduce friction and stimulate the skin.
Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage but is used to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and helping to eliminate scar tissue. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Deep tissue massage uses strokes across the grain of the muscles, not with the grain as in Swedish massage. The more intense movements and techniques such as deep finger pressure may be slightly uncomfortable and cause soreness that lasts a couple of days before resulting in the desired relaxation and pain relief.
Signature Body Mapping is really a gift, that I have acquired. I am able to feel “Pathways” in my clients bodies and I allow your body to take me exactly to the problem area or area of concern. I find that along the way, to the trigger point I am unraveling any possible pain patterns that your body may have been holding onto. I also incorporate stretching, into my massages. Most of my clients request this technique after getting referred, to me, by a Client of mine, a Doctor, Physical Therapist and/or a Chiropractor. I look forward to you being able to also have a “New Beginning With Healing Hands”.
