The most common and best-known form of bodywork and the ultimate in relaxation, Swedish Massage uses firm but gentle pressure to improve circulation, decrease muscle toxins, calm the nerves, ease muscle aches and tension and improve flexibility. The goal is to relax the entire body.
This type of bodywork is designed to help the body correct itself naturally. The goal is to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. It is aimed at the deeper layers of the muscle tissue, tendons and fascia by using strokes across the grain of the muscle. These more intense techniques may be slightly uncomfortable and cause soreness that can last a couple of days before resulting in the desired relaxation and pain relief.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle that can refer pain to another part of the body. It is caused by muscle overuse or injury. This type of bodywork is designed to alleviate the source of pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. The client actively participates by identifying the exact location and intensity of discomfort. As with deep pressure, this may cause soreness that can last a couple of days.
