Massage is a time-honored spa treatment that has numerous mental and physical benefits. The Fountain Spa offers a variety of massage packages featuring one of two techniques: Swedish massage or deep tissue massage. Here is a look at these two different techniques so you can discover which one will benefit you the most:
- Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is often referred to as a “traditional” or “relaxing” massage. This type of massage employs five styles of flowing strokes during the session, all designed to relax and rejuvenate the body. You will experience sliding strokes, kneading, tapping, friction, and vibration during your massage. These strokes combine to give you a relaxing, meditative experience that allows physical and emotional stress to melt away. If you are looking for a massage designed to provide relief from daily stresses, Swedish massage is the one for you.
- Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique that is designed not only to relax the recipient, but also to relieve tension and stress in the secondary layer of muscles and tissues of the body. This type of massage targets the fascia of your muscles, which is fibrous, connective tissue found around groupings of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves inside the body. Deep tissue massage utilizes techniques specifically designed to relieve consistent aches, pains, and even complications due to physical activity or injury. Deep tissue massages are therefore most effective if you are seeking relief from physical pain or tension.
