There's a Difference!
- What is Swedish Massage?
Swedish massage is the most commonly offered massage technique, utilizing a gentle to firm pressure on the muscles. It involves a series of long yet gliding strokes as well as a few other techniques with the hands. It is given to increase blood circulation, easing the tension in the body’s muscles and improving the muscles’ flexibility.
- What is Deep Pressure?
Deep Pressure is a type of massage that aims at affecting the deeper tissue structure of the muscles. It also affects the connective tissue and helps with both small muscle injuries as well as chronic problems. The practitioner will continue to apply pressure until the muscle pushes back against them. The muscle will then slowly begin to release and allow the therapist to move along it. The pressure used should not be painful, but should walk a fine line between pleasurable release of tension and tensing up.
