Here are tips on finding what type of massage right for you
Our licensed therapists specialize in facial, foot, and full body massage. All of our therapists undergo training by Dr.Tsing to ensure to incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques to enhance full-body muscle relaxation and recovery.
1. Swedish Massage Therapy
Using lotion or oil, massage therapists typically begin with broad general strokes and then transition to specific strokes to address problem areas. Swedish massage provides full-body muscle relaxation, and it can be especially helpful if you’re recovering from an injury.
2. Aromatherapy Massage
The soothing effects of aromatherapy massage can benefit a variety of conditions, including headaches, insomnia, certain digestive disorders, back pain, and even premenstrual symptoms.
3. Hot Stone Massage
As the name implies, hot stone massage uses warm stones. The therapist places heated, smooth stones on specific points on the body and also holds the warm stones while giving the massage.
4. Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage is particularly beneficial for people with chronic pain or lingering injuries that cause limited mobility. It’s effective in treating repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome and can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
5. Shiatsu Massage
A form of Japanese bodywork, shiatsu involves localized pressure using the therapist’s fingers (or sometimes hands and elbows), applied in a rhythmic sequence along the body. Shiatsu may help increase energy, promote recovery from injuries, and stimulate the digestive system.
6. Pregnancy Massage
Like having your feet worked on? The therapist uses finger pressure and techniques such as kneading and rubbing to promote relaxation and healing in the body. By applying pressure to the reflex points, the reflexologist can balance your nervous system and stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural pleasure response, which reduces stress and discomfort.
7. Sports Massage
During a sports massage, the strokes are generally faster than a typical Swedish massage. The therapist may also include compression, pressure point therapy, friction, and joint mobilization.
