Typically referred to as a "relaxation" massage. Swedish massage combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction. It is used especially for relaxation, relief of muscular tension, and improvement of circulation and range of motion.
Neuromuscular and Connective Tissue Therapy (Deep Tissue)
This type of massage therapy is highly effective for back pain, resulting from a soft tissue injury, such as a muscle strain. Neuromuscular therapy involves alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas where there is muscle spasm. The goal of Neuromuscular Therapy is to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
