The Types of Massage Therapy in Maple That We Offer

When you visit our local clinic for an assessment, we may recommend one or more different types of massage therapy, depending on the nature of your condition and the results you wish to achieve.

  • Swedish – One of the most common forms of massage, the primary techniques are designed to release tension and relax the muscles in all areas of the body. During a typical Swedish massage session, the therapist will use oil to provide a slicker surface with which to work and will use long movements in the same direction as your blood flow. Circular movements and kneading techniques are also often employed by Swedish massage therapists.
  • Deep Tissue – With this type of massage therapy in Maple, more pressure will be applied to the affected areas by your therapist. The added pressure is for the treatment of the deepest layers of muscle tissue in your body, making it a good choice for chronic aches and pains. Although more pressure is used, please bear in mind that it will be applied in a controlled manner by a highly-skilled professional so there is no need to worry that it will be excessively painful. In fact, most people find it to be a very relaxing experience.
  • Trigger Point – Trigger points are areas of muscle that when tense, cause referred pain in another area of the body. Rubbing these muscle ‘knots’ as they are commonly called, can release the tension and thereby provide effective pain relief. Your therapist may use thumbs, fingers, or even elbows and fists to massage the knots, depending on their location and the precise nature of your condition.
