Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deep layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, sore shoulders and lower back tightness.
Californian massage focuses foremost on relaxation. It is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. Executed with elongations, long and fluid movements sculpt and gently wrap the body to provide a more complete sensation of abandonment.
Swedish massage works directly on muscle tissue to reduce adhesions and tension points. It involves thumb, hand and forearm movements and uses a combination of kneading, soft brushing and applied pressure to specific areas. Due to the slow, methodical movements, it is not uncommon for clients to drift off in total relaxation. Depending on the needs of the client, a Swedish massage can be a full body experience or restricted to problem areas.
