Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage uses slow, deep strokes and friction to release tension in the muscle and connective tissue or fascia. Deep finger, hand or elbow pressure is often used to stretch, compress and release contracted connective tissue and muscles. This technique can help with chronic muscle pain, injury rehabilitation and inflammation related pain.
Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique (SMRT)
SMRT is a positional release therapy that begins with passive contraction of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and bones simultaneously to allow release of these structures. SMRT stimulates lymphatic flow and creates a natural unwinding of connective tissues, which allows the joints of the body to realign effortlessly, re-establishing correct posture. While doing all of this, SMRT also quickly alleviates soreness in tissue, permitting work on tissues deeper in the body that are not easily accessible.
Swedish massage uses lubrication from oil, lotion, cream, or gel to facilitate fluid, methodical movements. The goal of a Swedish massage is to relax the tissues of the body, relieve physical and emotional stress and improve circulation. Most consider this type of massage to be the most relaxing and refreshing, all while relieving stress and reaping the body’s benefits of massage.
This technique uses light to moderate pressure.
