Sports massage is specifically designed for physically active people, not just people who play sports. This therapy focuses on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance by loosening muscles and increasing flexibility. A variety of massage techniques are used in sports massage, including strokes that are generally faster than Swedish massage and facilitated stretching.
Pregnancy massage, or prenatal massage, is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage and how to appropriately modify techniques.
|Deep Tissue Massage||
Deep tissue massage targets 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 to treat chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
|Thai Table Massage||
Thai table massage, also known as Nuat Thai and “lazy man’s yoga,” combines physical and energy aspects of massage that includes aspects of yoga, acupressure, and reflexology.
In this deep, full-body massage, the energy focus is on opening sen, or energy, lines throughout the body as the therapist works from the feet up the body. Thai massage stimulates the circulatory system, improving blood flow, and clears blockages in the body’s sen lines.
Swedish massage is the most widely recognized and commonly used massage. Swedish massage techniques vary from light therapy to vigorous tissue manipulation.
