Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage may be therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.
The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury. Four common strokes of Swedish massage are: Effleurage: A smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissues Petrissage: Squeezing, rolling or kneading once soft tissues are relaxed Friction: Deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, which helps to break down scar tissue and increase blood flow Tapotement: Short, alternating tapping technique performed with cupped hands, fingers and the edge of the hand.
The face is full of nerves, so whether you are looking for a quick midday pick-me-up or a soothing escape, booking a facial massage is easily justified by some of its more practical benefits. Psychological tests administered after 45 minutes of facial massage showed significant improvements in both mood and anxiety levels. Gentle, routine facial massage can help relax these tight and drawn muscles, decreasing the lines that they form (aka “wrinkles”).
Sometimes the best part of going to the salon is getting your hair shampooed! It feels so relaxing you drift away. Scalp massage is said to offer a variety of benefits, which may include stress relief, reduction in headaches and migraines, and boost in blood flow stimulation. The increase in blood flow aids in feeding and strengthening the hair follicles, which may cause the hair to grow at a faster rate, as well as aid in the fight to avoid hair loss.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. This form of massage helps with TMJ which is typically caused by stress which causes gritting and grinding of teeth; usually while you sleep. If you wake up with headaches or have had cracked teeth, TMJ massage may help relieve some of those tight jaw muscles and bring relief.
Cupping uses suction with plastic cups to pull blood/fluid containing toxins and waste products to the surface layers of the skin. The newly oxygenated blood flows back to the area to promote healing. Benefits: pain relief, reduces cellulite, wrinkles and scarring, eases breathing issues, eases issues with herniated/bulging discs, tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis, eczema, migraines, aids with lymph drainage, eases PTSD, and more.

Stressful meetings, deadlines, or family events? Trigger points exist in each of us, but they can be activated by different things. Stress, overuse, driving, tension, lifting, sitting, repetitive motion or trauma and injury can activate the trigger point. When activated, trigger points can cause widespread pain, tension, irritation and even lack of motion. When tissues remain in a contracted state for long periods of time, they can harden and create little nodules that therapists can actually feel during a trigger point massage. When a moderate amount of pressure is applied, they can create a dull, aching feeling to a different area of the body, which is known as referral pain. This lets therapists know that they are on a trigger point so they can directly address the area and concern. When tension is released, it can help eliminate pain and promote a better range of motion and mobility.
