Swedish massage is a popular form of registered massage therapy. It helps relax, increase energy, and may help after an injury.
Swedish massage involves long and kneading strokes and targets the uppermost layer of muscles to relieve muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sprains. By applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers muscles and connective tissues, this RMT technique helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce muscle tension.
Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle treatment that relieves muscular tension, increases circulation, and promotes a general sense of relaxation. Unlike deep tissue massages, a relaxation massage does not address the connective tissue of the muscles. It is not intended to treat sports injuries or other discomfort and is instead used to reduce muscle tension while bringing the body back to a relaxed state.
Sports massage is a collection of registered massage therapy techniques performed on athletes or individuals for the purpose of aiding recovery or treating pathology. Muscle and connective tissue is manipulated to bring blood flow to the area of injury and to promote tissue regeneration.
