A massage is an excellent way to ease pain and tension. Each style of massage will benefit you differently but how do you know which might be the right for you? We are here to break this down and help you book the one that’s best for you.
1. Hot Stone
It’s just how it sounds. During the session, hot basalt stones are used to ease muscle tension, improve blood flow, and relieve pain. It is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax.
It is a gentle type of full-body massage which can help ease shallow tension in the muscles. It is ideal for people who have never had a massage before and have tight-to-moderate tension, specifically in the back and shoulders.
People who struggle with stress and anxiety benefit the most through aromatherapy. Essential oils are used to boost your mood, reduce stress and symptoms of depression, relieve muscle tension and pain.
4. Deep Tissue
As the name suggests, deep-tissue massage aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscle tissue. If you have chronic muscle issues, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance, this might be the right fit for you. However, if you are overly sensitive to pressure, it’s better to avoid it.
5. Trigger point
Unlike, deep tissue massage, trigger point massage aims to dispel chronic pain that radiates from a very specific area (or areas). It is ideal for people with stiff joints and chronic pain.
