Leta's Massage Therapy
Many people ask me what is the difference
between the different modalities.
on this page I will let you know what I feel
the difference is.
Swedish massage is what most people think of when they think of massage. it is relaxing. it is an hour give or take where you get to lay or sit and think about nothing while someone else stretches your muscle. Its great if you just want to relax or you have a condition such as anxiety or fibromyalgia.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage goes deeper into the muscles, Where as Swedish usually deals only with the superficial surface. It can be performed either by finding a trigger point and holding pressure until the muscle releases, or by continuous friction until the muscle releases.
You would want a Deep Tissue Massage if you are having limited range of motion, an example would be you wake up one morning and you cant turn your neck a certain way. It is also great if you are having a headache.
