Swedish Massage--Is traditionally performed on a massage table and uses five main techniques or "strokes."  These include effleurage (gliding or sliding), pettrisage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction, and vibration.  Each of these techniques have different benefits and are important components to providing the overall therapeutic response of massage therapy.  It is important to communicate with your therapist about the depth of pressure that you prefer.  Everyone is different and no one knows your body better than you so please talk to your therapist so that they can provide the best massage for you.  If relaxation is your goal, Swedish massage is your best choice.  Swedish massage also provides pain relief and enhance joint mobility.  Please be sure to discuss any health concerns that you may have with your therapist.

Deep Tissue--This type of massage uses Swedish movements in addition to connective tissue manipulation to accomplish structural changes and release of shortened muscles.  A structural analysis may be appropriate to determine the source of your pain or structural abnormality.  The "hands on" portion of your massage may be shortened because of the added assessment time to determine the best course of treatment.  A diagram of your posture may be constructed to demonstrate abnormalities to your posture which may be causing a chronic condition.  You may experience more discomfort with this type of massage because when lengthening shortened muscles and retraining them to stay in their lengthened state the therapist may need to work at a deeper level than you feel most comfortable with.  Your therapist will explain the "pain scale" with you to determine at what level she can work so that you are still comfortable but therapeutic changes can be made.  With this type of massage it is extremely important for you to communicate with your therapist and your therapist may need to make environmental changes to keep you focused on the therapy (such as using brighter lights and different types of music).  All of this will be determined by your therapist so that you will receive the best benefit from your massage session.

Chair massage--Performed in a specially designed chair, with recipient fully clothed, this type of massage is great for lunch breaks or after work to de-stress from your day.  The sessions are typically 10-20 minutes long and focus on relieving tired and sore muscles.  10 minute minimum.
