is a classic spa-style massage which promotes general relaxation,
improves circulation, and relieves muscle tension. It can be performed
with light, medium to firm pressure. Swedish massage is the most
requested type of massage and is typically the basis for most massage
therapists. This massage style uses long, rhythmic strokes, kneading and

There are several massage styles which are considered "deep tissue"
including: myofascial release, cross-fiber friction, and trigger point

stretches. Please remember, it is your massage session. Communicating
your preferences and tolerances to your massage therapist will help
produce the best results and provide the most relief for you.
