What Type Of Massage Is Best

Feb 20, 2014

There are different types of massage, massage therapies and strokes. Each of these offer different benefits, fit a specific situation and target different body parts. When you book for a massage treatment, it would be helpful to you if you know the different purposes and techniques of the massage you are considering. Going for the right kind of massage will improve your health, relieve your stress and increase your comfort levels. Here is a quick guide that will help you determine what type of massage is best.

Decide On Which Massage To Go For

One of the most popular types of massage is Swedish massage. During this service the therapist use oils to lubricate the skin as they perform their skilled strokes. They will loosen up your muscles and work out any knots that have formed. This is a very relaxing and tension-relieving service that is typically booked for 60-90 minutes. More results are achieved when a therapists is given the full 90 minutes to work. Deep tissue massage, on the other hand, works with deeper levels of tissue in the muscle and fascia than a Swedish technique does. Although the two services use many of the same strokes, a deep tissue is more pressure and aims to release chronic adhesions. It is recommended to drink plenty of water before getting this type of service. It is more intense than other massages and may cause more soreness the next day if you are not hydrated prior to service.

Another type of massage popular with many is hot stone massage. The stones used are heated and smooth and set levels of tissue in the muscle and fascia than a Swedish technique does. Although the two services use many of the same strokes, a deep tissue is more pressure and aims to release chronic adhesions. It is recommended to drink plenty of water before getting this type of service. It is more intense than other massages and may cause more soreness the next day if you are not hydrated prior to service.
