Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage

Unlike classic bodywork therapy applied for relaxation, deep tissue massage targets specific and often chronic areas of tension along the connective tissue of the body. While some of the strokes are similar to those used in classic bodywork therapy, the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper in order to unravel the tension and knots that plague the deeper layers of connective tissue.

Deep tissue massage is especially helpful for:

  • Chronically tense and contracted areas (stiff necks, low back tightness, sore shoulders)
  • Limited mobility
  • Injury recovery (whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  • Repetitive strain (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Postural problems
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Fibromyalgia

Swedish massage is based on Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. It promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, and generates numerous health benefits. In all styles of Swedish bodywork, the therapist lubricates the skin and performs various strokes that warm up and move the muscle tissue. This technique releases tension and breaks up the superficial muscle “knots” leaving you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

In short, deep tissue bodywork will apply more pressure than Swedish massage, but either way, the end result is pain relief, relaxation and better movement.
