Massage therapy has experienced a long history in cultures throughout the world. Today, people use many different types of massage therapy for a variety of health-related purposes. Here at Skin Essentials Luxury Med Spa and Salon, we offer a full range of massage options to suit your needs, ranging from 25 to 115-minute sessions. If you’re new to this type of treatment, we understand the options can seem a bit overwhelming. Today, we will highlight just a few of the different types to help you choose the best option for you.

Swedish. As the best-known massage therapy, this is what most people visualize when they think about massage. The main goal of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of the blood flow towards the heart. Beyond relaxation, though, this type of massage is also beneficial for increasing oxygen levels in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility. 

Deep Tissue. Similar to Swedish massage, this treatment option includes deeper pressure and is an excellent option for releasing chronic muscle tension. This massage technique focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia and the benefits include the reduction of stress hormones, decreased blood pressure, and an increase in the feel-good hormone serotonin. 

Thai Massage. Long considered a medical treatment in Thailand, during this massage the therapist puts you through a series of stretches that cover the entire body. (That’s why it’s often called lazy man’s yoga.) This massage also includes deep-pressure point work to stimulate the zen or the body’s energy pathways.

In addition to the above massage options, we also offer reflexology, cupping, and hot stone massages. While you’re in for an expert massage, why not try out our makeup salon?
