Deep Tissue Massage works on muscle and connective tissue, which is great for athletes, and people with pain issues that a relaxation massage simply can’t handle. The idea is to massage not just the outer muscle tissue, but to get in closer and deeper to work the joints and connective tissue that can still cause pain, if they haven’t been included in the massage. Deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable, but it is well known for the positive effects on the  body.

Many people have heard of Shiatsu massage. Since it roughly translates to, “pressure fingers,” Shiatsu massage is all about the art of applying fingers in the massage, so as to precisely apply pressure to the spots that need attention the most. This can be an intensive massage, similar to deep tissue massage, and can lead to the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and feel great hormones.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     There is one type of Shiatsu massage which is famous because the massage therapists will actually use their feet to apply pressure to you by literally standing on you!

Swedish Massage is great for relaxation. It works with long, sweeping strokes and is well-suited for improving circulation, relaxation and ensuring pain relief.

All Massage Helps with Circulation and pain relief. When you know the different goals behind different types of therapy, you’ll realize what kind of massage will be best suited to provide what you need and are looking for.
