Swedish Massage is the most common and best known type of massage. It involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and tissues with pressure that varies from light to medium to firm. This type of massage is considered to be one of the most relaxing styles. Your massage therapists will adjust the pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.
Deep Tissue Massage is a deeper more intense massage. This technique uses slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles. Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain and soreness in both large and small muscle groups.
Thai Massage is a modality that is typically done on a mat on the floor, with both the therapist and client fully clothed. It involves deep compressions combined with stretching/range of motion techniques. It is similar to assisted yoga, except deeper.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
The Lymphatic System consists of vessels, ducts and nodes and is closely connected to the cardiovascular system. It is often referred to as an ”internal cleaning system for the whole body”. It is vital for the maintenance of human life because if it fails to function correctly, excessive fluids and toxins build up causing the body pain, loss of energy, infection and disease. During the complex transportation process, the lymph fluid is cleaned, concentrated and filtered by one of the 600-700 lymph nodes located around the body. They also produce a certain type of white blood cell, namely lymphocytes, which is why the lymphatic system is vital to immunity.
