Swedish Massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. The development of Swedish massage is often inaccurately credited to Per Henrik Ling, though the Dutch practitioner Johan Georg Mezger adopted the French names to denote the basic strokes. The term "Swedish" massage is actually only recognized in English and Dutch speaking countries, and in Hungary. Elsewhere (including Sweden) the style is referred to as "classic massage".
Thai Massage is a system of massage and assisted stretching developed in Thailand, and influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine.
In the Thai language it is usually called nuat phaen thai (Thai: นวดแผนไทย; lit. Thai-style massage) or nuat phaen boran (Thai: นวดแผนโบราณ, IPA: [nûət pʰɛ̌ːn boːraːn]; lit. ancient-style massage), though its formal name is merely nuat thai (Thai: นวดไทย, lit. Thai massage) according to the Traditional Thai Medical Professions Act, BE 2556 (2013).
Thai Massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilisation, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
Deep Tissue Massage is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body; and recommended by many doctors as a treatment option. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments.
Some studies reports that Deep Tissue massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than conventional medical remedies. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep Tissue massage can also alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters. This type of massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure.
Over time, Deep Tissue massage therapy can help break up and eventually erase scar tissue in the body. It achives this by improving lymphatic circulation and drainage to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected area. Scar tissue is often associated with ongoing pain and stiffness, so deep-tissue massage can improve these symptoms. Massage therapy is often recommended for people who are recovering from surgery.
Hot Stone Massage is a specialty massage using smooth, heated basalt stones. Basalt is a type of ancient volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat especially well. Hot stones may be placed on various points on the body, including along the spine, in the palms of the hands, on chest and abdomen, on the face and between the toes. The heated stones encourage deeper relaxation of the muscles, as well as the mind and spirit. Massage cream or oil is used in conjunction with a warm stone to apply some traditional Swedish massage strokes.
A Combination Massage is a massage integrating more than one style or massage modality.
Combinations are said to amplify the healing effects of massage. For example, combining multiple massage styles may increase circulation and metabolism quicker than using only one style.
At Mind Prossage, our Combination Massage combines the benefits of the invigorating Thai massage and the relaxing and popular Swedish massage style.
Therapeutic Massage is massage technique, which is offered with the goal of obtaining a therapeutic benefit. While therapeutic massage is often relaxing, the end goal of the session or series of sessions is not relaxation.
Techniques from a variety of massage styles may be incorporated, with the massage therapist tailoring the sessions to the needs of the patient. When discussing massage therapy, people should be sure to bring up problem areas, which they would like to see addressed, and to discuss their medical history so that the massage therapist can adjust the specifics of the session to avoid causing medical complications.
Massage has proven to have several therapeutic benefits such as improve posture reinforcing healthy and natural movements, lower blood pressure, improves circulation moving blood through congested areas and causing new blood to flow in, relax tense muscles removing unwanted pains, relieves headaches, promote deeper and easier breathing, improve flexibility and range of motion making people less prone to injury, improves rehabilitation after injury, strengthens the immune systems.
