The main goal of deep-tissue massage is to alleviate soreness or tightness in muscles. Therapists utilize slower strokes and deeper pressure on contracted areas. Typically the deep, slow strokes follow the muscle line, as well as go across the grain of constricted muscles and tendons. As the name implies, the focus of this massage is the deeper layers of muscle tissues and fascia.
Reflexology is an ancient technique based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands that correspond to every part of the body. Therapists stimulate and apply pressure to the feet or hands. Reflexology can increase circulation and promote specific bodily and muscular functions. Clients with chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, have found this technique to be beneficial in managing their condition.
The main goal of hot stone massage is to relieve muscle tension and enhance relaxation. During the course of a massage, smooth river stones are heated to a comfortable temperature and then applied to the body in long, deep strokes. The heat that is transferred to the muscles results in increased circulation and deep relaxation for the client.
