About Our Different Massage Techniques

Massage therapy is as ancient as any form of medicine. There is archeological evidence of massage in cultures as diverse as China, India, Japan, Korea, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Mesopotamia. This explains why there are so many different massage techniques.

Today, the most common massage techniques include:

Swedish Massage. By far the most popular form of massage, Swedish Massage is so common that it’s often referred to generically as “relaxation massage”.

Deep Tissue Massage. This type of massage is targeted at muscles that have been strained or are related to chronic pain or posture problems.

Shiatsu. A Japanese specialty, this technique involves applying pressure to acupuncture/acupressure points to relieve stress and pain.

Tui na. Chinese modality that includes many different types of strokes, aimed to improve the flow of chi through the meridians.
