Relaxation massage (often referred to as Swedish massage) is meant to do just that – relax you. It is the most common and known massage, and is considered to be one of the most relaxing styles. It involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and tissues with pressure that varies from light to firm. Your Massage Therapists will adjust the pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a type of massage that aims to help the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions. It is focused on the lymphatic system, relieving swelling and lymphedema that can occur usually during medical treatments, illnesses, or surgery. It involves gently manipulating special areas of the body to clear lymphatic fluid and move it to your lymph nodes.
Massage therapy during pregnancy has been shown to provide many benefits, including a sense of wellness, improved relaxation, and better sleep. Although massage therapy is relatively safe during pregnancy, consulting with your doctor beforehand is beneficial in knowing if massage therapy is right for you in the early or late stages of pregnancy as certain techniques and trigger points can cause early labour. Our clinic can provide a pregnancy pillow during the massage for optimal comfortability.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than other styles of massage. It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. During a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will use slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension from the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
