Choosing The Right Type Of Massage

Meghan Burnham

Posted on July 21 2021

Everyone has aches and pains in life. Beyond this, we all have stress in our lives. A great way to deal with the rigors of life is to get a massage. On the surface this seems simple. However, there are many different types of massage. I am going to discuss a few of them to try to help you figure out what massage type is best for you.

Swedish Massage

 

A Swedish massage is a full body massage. This is a quite common type of massage that you would receive at a spa or massage parlor. This is a relaxion massage. It is good for those sic aches and pains.

Swedish massage can help with blood flow, sleep, headaches, immune system, flexibility, and reducing stress along with many other benefits. 

 

 

Deep Tissue Massage

 

Deep tissue massage is a more intense form of massage than a Swedish massage. It aims to sooth deeper layers of muscle and tissue. Although massage is often thought of as relaxation, a deep tissue massage might be uncomfortable at times. This can vary based on the individual. Deep tissue can help with your blood pressure, a muscle injury, and increased range of motion.


Aromatherapy Massage

 

An aromatherapy massage is like a Swedish massage. The main difference being that the massage therapist will add essential oils to generate aromas that produce differing effects within the body and mind. The use of a humidifier is also possible to better spread scents through the air.

Essential oils include lavender, orange, and eucalyptus.

Aromatherapy massages can be used as a mood boosting massage. They can be beneficial to those who suffer from depression and anxiety.

 

 

 

 

Whatever aches and pains you might be feeling the type of massage you get matters. Hopefully, the knowledge you've gained from this post will help make your decision a little easier!
