Techniques Used In Popular Massage Therapies

If you are new to spas, choosing the right type of massage therapy can be confusing, as there are different massages with different benefits to each of them. So, here’s a small guide to some of the most popular types of massages you’ll find in most spas.

Aromatherapy– Originating in Egypt and employed across various ancient cultures, this kind of massage incorporates the use of essential oils for both physical and emotional health. Products like aromatic diffusers, inhalers, and bathing salts are used, sometimes combining the scents. Aromatherapy reduces stress levels, ease anxiety, improve sleep, and boosts immunity. 

Deep Tissue Massage– Deep tissue massage is mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, including any strains and sports injuries. In this massage, the masseuse applies sustained pressure in the muscles using deep strokes. Deep tissue massage is also effective in healing fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, sciatica, and tennis elbow

Hot Stone Massage– During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat stones are placed on parts of the body like along the neck, spine, stomach, or chest. These stones are heated and usually made of a volcanic rock called basalt. It helps to ease any tension and pain in the muscles, relieves stress, and promotes sleep. 

Myofascial Massage– This massage is used to treat myofascial pain syndrome which is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in the myofascial tissues. This massage eases the tension and tightness right from the source of pain, in specific regions in the myofascial tissues that are known as trigger points. 

Reiki– Reiki was originated in ancient Japan as a method to reduce stress and stimulate healing. The core of this technique is the belief that“life force energy” flows through the body and sustains our life. If this energy is lessened, our health deteriorates, which is why Reiki focuses on increasing the levels of this energy. 

Swedish Massage– Swedish massage is one of the most popular and gentle types of a full-body massage. It is usually preferred by those who are new to taking professional massages or to people who are sensitive to touch. The masseuse kneads the skin in strokes in the direction of the heart to improve circulation and promote deep relaxation. 

You can avail other relaxing massages like prenatal massage, reflexology massage, and Thai herbal massages at the Mbio spa massage center in Montreal to heal your mind, body, and soul.
