Swedish massage

Swedish massage is a gentle full-body massage that’s great for people who:

• are new to massage
• want to release tension
• desire gentle touch

It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.

The massage therapist will use a combination of:

• kneading
• long, flowing strokes in the direction of the heart
• deep circular motions
• vibration and tapping
• passive joint movement techniques

A Swedish massage will last 60 to 90 minutes.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It’s a good option if you have muscle problems, such as:

• soreness
• injury
• imbalance
• tightness
• chronic muscle pain

During a deep tissue massage, you need to use slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension from the deepest layers of muscles and connective tissues. 

The massage will last 60 to 90 minutes.

Aromatherapy massage

Aromatherapy massages are best for people who enjoy scent and want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. This type of massage can help:

• boost your mood
• reduce stress and anxiety
• reduce symptoms of depression
• relieve muscle tension
• relieve pain

Aromatherapy massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Massage therapist will usually decide which essential oils to use, but you can let them know if you have a preference. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin.

During the massage, you’ll be given a full-body massage while inhaling essential oils through a diffuser and absorbing them through your skin.

Hot stone massage

Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax.

This type of therapeutic massage is similar to a Swedish massage, only the massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands.

Hot stone massage may help:

• ease muscle tension
• improve blood flow
• alleviate pain
• promote relaxation
• relieve stress

During a hot stone massage, heated stones are placed on different areas of the whole body. Your therapist may hold a stone as they massage different parts of your body using Swedish massage techniques with gentle pressure. Sometimes, cold stones are also used.

You don’t wear clothes for hot stone massage, unless you’d prefer to wear your underwear. You’ll be covered with a sheet.

Usually, the massage is 90 minutes long
