Having trouble deciding between a Swedish and a Deep Tissue Massage? While each is good for you, the benefits of one can outweigh the other depending on the desired outcome of your massage. Both are extremely beneficial, but your preferences and needs dictate which is best for you.
Do you prefer a more gentle, light pressure massage? You can plan to unwind, let go and truly relax with a Swedish Massage. Typically a soothing and relaxing easy/medium pressure massage, The Swedish Massage is designed to ease your mind, as well as minor aches and pains.
Deep Tissue Massage
Contrary to the Swedish Massage, a Deep Tissue Massage is a firmer, deeper massage designed to workout tension and discomfort all over the body. Many people think that Deep Tissue Massages are painful, but our Massage Therapists apply the perfect amount of pressure, catered to your unique definition of light versus deep touch, that allows you to comfortably breath through any pressure points and compressions of the massage.
