Types of Massage at Genuine Care Health and Wellness Center

There are many types of massage we use in a therapeutic context. Although the exact techniques differ from method to method, in general, massage involves the manipulation of muscles and other soft tissue on the body by a trained masseuse. Some of the most common types of massage therapy we employ for pain and stress relief include:

  • Swedish massage

    This type of massage is characterized by long strokes, kneading, vibration, tapping and deep circular movements to loosen muscle and other soft tissue.

  • Sports massage

    Like Swedish massage, sports massage is tailored to athletes’ specific needs.

  • Deep tissue massage

    Also based on the principles of Swedish massage, deep tissue massage focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue. This is intended to release chronic muscle tension and relieve pain, especially in the neck, shoulders and back.

  • Myofascial trigger point therapy

    This form of massage therapy concentrates on areas of the muscle tissue that are painful to the touch and can cause pain in other parts of the body. By massaging these “trigger points,” the aim is to relieve tension and ease pain elsewhere in the body.

  • Aromatherapy

    Sometimes, massage therapy is accompanied with aromatic essential oils to further promote a sense of calm.
