Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is the most commonly offered and best known type of massage. It uses a firm but gentle pressure to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation.

Swedish massage employs five different movements

  • long, gliding strokes
  • kneading of individual muscles
  • friction
  • hacking or tapping
  • vibration

The therapist generally uses massage oil to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body. Swedish massage is done with the person covered by a sheet, a technique called “draping”. One part of the body uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The therapist uses many stones of various shapes and sizes and the therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, or in the palms of your hand, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.

The heat of the stones helps muscles release more quickly than in traditional massage. The therapist uses traditional strokes of Swedish massage while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another.

Relaxation Massage
A relaxation massage is exactly what the name implies: a massage strictly for the purposes of rest and relaxation. This massage technique is not designed for therapeutic effects or for dealing with chronic pain or discomfort.

Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle style of massage designed to improve circulation, range of movement, relief minor muscle pain, and promote overall relaxation.

Reiki Massage

Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of hands-on healing. Recipients report their experience of Reiki includes increased energy, reduction of pain, deep relaxation and a general feeling of well being. Reiki initiation attunes a practitioner to become a channel for the Reiki energy and is a powerful, life-changing experience for physical, mental and spiritual growth.

The Usui method of natural healing has evolved into many different channels or styles. Reiki, as taught by Hawayo Takata, involves three levels or degrees. As taught by Dr. Barbara Weber Ray, it involves many more levels or degrees. There are almost as many styles as there are Reiki Masters teaching today.

Traditional Usui Reiki involves three levels or degrees as created by Hawayo Takata. A practitioner is initiated by a series of attunements, which opens the flow of universal healing energy. The training includes the history, scientific evidence of Reiki energy, how to prepare to give a Reiki treatment, how to prepare a room for Reiki and the various techniques for performing Reiki treatments.

     

Which massage is best for you?

You’ve got: Too much stress

You need: Swedish massage. Therapists use long, gliding strokes and light-to-medium pressure during a Swedish massage, the most popular type in the United States. “One of the primary goals of a Swedish massage is to relax the entire body,” says Funk, who adds that this form is also great for promoting circulation and lymph movement.

Other options: Aromatherapy massage. The use of plant essential oils during an aromatherapy massage can ease many emotional issues, including stress.

You’ve got: Overuse injuries and muscle pain

You need: Deep tissue massage. If you’re looking to loosen scar tissue or get serious pain relief, this type of massage is for you. Deep tissue treatments target deeper layers of muscle, where chronic use injuries may originate. Your massage therapist will use slower strokes and apply pressure and friction across the grain of the muscle. FYI: You may feel sore for a day or two after a deep tissue massage, but that’s completely normal.

Massage Cupping

Massage Cupping techniques are incredible addition to massage therapy, physical therapy, facials and body treatments. The action on the nervous system is sedating, and people often descend into a profound state of relaxation. On a deeper therapeutic level massage cupping therapy is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headaches, fibromyalgia and neuralgia. Body conturing with cupping can eliminate cellulite, and contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of massage cupping.

Other options: Hot stone massage. Water-heated, smooth stones are placed on the body to warm and loosen muscles. This is a great type of massage for someone who prefers a lighter touch, but still wants pain relief.

You’ve got: An aching athlete’s body

You need: Sports massage. Whether you’re a weekend runner, gym bunny or professional athlete, a sports massage can help reduce post-workout recovery time. “This treatment promotes flexibility to decrease risk of injury, improve endurance and offer balance to a training regimen,” says Funk. Therapists will customize your massage based on your activity and will usually combine several types of massage including Swedish and deep tissue to help loosen and stretch muscles.

Other options: Shiatsu massage. This form of Japanese bodywork incorporates localized finger pressure applied at acupuncture meridians, trigger points or areas of pain and muscle tightness. This is a relaxing type of massage and the pressure usually does not cause next-day soreness.

You’ve got: Headaches

You need: Cranial sacral massage. This modality—which focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum—can be performed alone or added onto another type of massage. Headaches and migraines are often triggered by pain in the neck and back, so using gentle touch in these areas can help prevent and treat them.

Other options: Scalp massage. Another massage add-on, scalp massages release tension in the muscles of the head.
