What is Massage?
The most widely recognized and commonly used category of massage is the Swedish massage. The Swedish massage techniques vary from light to vigorous. Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device. Massage can promote relaxation and well-being. Massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients.
What is a Relaxation Massage?
A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body. The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles. It is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.
