This popular massage style, which targets the upper body and is loosely based around the techniques used in a Swedish massage. The treatment focuses on the build-up of stress and muscle tension in all areas around the neck, shoulders and across the back.
Another popular popular massage style includes work on the lower body including lower back and sciatic nerve. The treatment focuses on releasing the tendons in the lower back , the buttocks and leg to achieve the best possible release of pain in those areas. Soothing these muscles can release nerves that are acutally causing the discomfort.
Trigger point massage focuses on releasing trigger points, which are small, tight knots that develop in muscles that may even cause pain in other areas of the body (an effect known as “referral pain”).
Trigger point massage involves a more targeted approach focused directly on releasing painful trigger points, so the sessions are meant to be more therapeutic and results-oriented than luxurious or relaxing.
