Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots in the myofascia where the nerve enters the muscle. These points often have referred pain patterns that can be felt away from the originating point. The apotheosis uses deep sustained compression directly on the nodule to release the trigger point and relieve the associated pain.
One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
