Relaxing massage that uses gliding lifting and friction strokes along with joint mobilization to help relieve tension of muscle and promote health and well being along with calming of mind and body. This is probably the most common form of massage.
A therapist giving a deep tissue massage uses patterns of strokes and deep finger pressure on parts of the body where muscles are tight or knotted, focusing on layers of muscle deep under the skin. Types of Deep Tissue Massage are mentioned below.
Connective Tissue: Lengthening of the muscle from origin to insertion promoting more movement and less tension on the muscle.
Neuromuscular Therapy: Also known as Trigger Point therapy: the therapist uses a variety of strokes but applies deeper, more focused pressure on myofascial trigger points--"knots" that can form in the muscles, are painful when pressed, and cause symptoms elsewhere in the body as well.
Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy: This therapy combines the use of Connective Tissue with the use of Trigger Point Therapy
