Swedish

Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation.  If this is your first time getting a massage, a Swedish massage is recommended. 

Deep Tissue

A deep tissue massage uses the same technique as Swedish massage but more intense pressure is used to aim at deep tissue structures in the muscle.  Deep tissue massages are good for pain management and injury recovery. 

Sport

Sport massages are great for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range of motion issues.  You do not have to be an athlete to get a sport massage.  A sport massage is similar to a Swedish massage, but uses trigger point therapy to break down adhesions in the muscle.
