About Massage Therapy

Swedish massage is what many people think of when massage is mentioned. It uses long light strokes, deep kneading, small friction-type motions, light tapping, and movement of the joints. There are many other specialized techniques that you are able to take advantage of during your appointment. Ask your massage therapist about their knowledge of specific techniques that may suit your needs.
