Many people don’t take the time to care for themselves as much as they should in order to relieve the stress from daily life. Taking the time to get regular massages can help relieve tension, focus on self-care, and increase oxytocin hormone levels in the body. These things alone help you feel healthier and happier. At Remedi Spa, we have been helping people relieve tension and feel their best for ten years and are looking forward to doing the same for the next ten. Come by and try one of our many different massages that we provide.
Here’s some information to help you know the differences in each type of massage and figure out which one is best for you!
Anyone can benefit from a Swedish massage and it can be customized to your needs. Swedish massage is the most common form of massage therapy. Originating in Sweden, this technique involves long strokes along the muscle to help improve blood flow and promote relaxation. Only the top most layers of muscle are worked through the skin. The goal of this massage is to get blood moving back towards the heart, re-oxygenate it, and have it flow back out to the limbs. This oxygenation process helps to remove waste from the muscles and improve overall flexibility for individuals.
While deep tissue massages use similar techniques to the Swedish massage, they focus on reaching much deeper than just the superficial muscle layers. This massage focuses on relieving chronic pain from tight muscles and joints, working the muscles, as well as the facia which is the casing surrounding all muscles. Individuals with chronic tension or muscle injuries can really benefit from deep tissue massage.
A therapeutic massage from Remedi Spa utilizes the best aspects from Swedish and Deep Tissue massage in order to target specific pain relief goals. We all have areas that bother us most, whether it’s your neck, lower back, or feet that are causing you the most trouble, we can tailor a massage to fit your specific physical needs.
The hands-on massage techniques used in hot stone massage are very similar to a Swedish massage, but the addition of hot stones, that create a deep, penetrating warmth is what makes it unique. The warmed stones can also be used on acupressure points to simply heat muscles deep down, or they can be used as a massage tool. This massage is an excellent choice for individuals suffering from chronic conditions such as carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, or arthritis and can help relieve pain.
Pregnancy can cause many different types of pain as the body changes, while also limiting the medication options available to combat these aches and pains. A pre-natal massage focuses on relieving the joint pain and limb swelling that can accompany pregnancy. With the guidance of a therapist, you will be positioned with pillows in the most comfortable way possible and massage focused just for pregnancy.
This is a very focused massage technique that stimulates pressure points in the hands and feet thought to be associated with different systems in the body. The pressure used to massage these areas promote health and well-being without a full-body massage. This is excellent for individuals who experience depression and chronic, full-body pain.
