- Swedish and Sports massage employ common techniques for relieving stress and tension, and consist of long gliding strokes and kneading with massage cream.
- Deeper pressure is used for Deep Tissue Therapy.
- Clinical massage: the therapist carefully analyzes the root causes of the client’s discomfort to solve problems. For example, many problems are associated with chronically shortened muscle tissues. Addressing the root cause helps correcting such problems. Techniques like stripping massage, trigger point work, and stretching are used to relieve chronic pain, and can also be beneficial for Pre and/or Post Sports Events therapy.
- Oriental Techniques: The ancient Chinese massage technique called Tui Na is noted for its characteristic use of stretching, vibration, rubbing, tapping, and extending range of motion of the joints. Shiatsu (finger pressure) and Anma are traditional Japanese techniques and are applied to pressure points on the body using deep pressure with thumbs and/or elbows. Thai Massage is very similar to Tui Na and works very effectively to increase flexibility.
- These Oriental massage techniques are closely related to the use of Qi(Chi) – the body’s electromagnetic energy or life force – and acupressure applied to the body’s 14 major channels (energy pathways) to promote the body’s ability to heal itself by balancing the flow of Qi.
