The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body. Lomi Lomi is similar to Swedish but is a bit more fluid and forearms are utilized in a flowing fashion. Therapeutic massage will target areas of muscle tension but will not go as deep as a typical deep tissue session. This can be either a full body massage or a more focused massage in which more time will be spent on specific areas which feel tight, tender, stiff and/or painful.
Hot Stone Massage is often paired with Swedish Massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to sooth, warm, and massage your muscles. This allows your body to relax and release tension and stress. Book your Hot Stone appointment at Massage By Jeannette CMT in San Ramon today!
Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Therapy penetrate the deeper layers of muscles in order to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. Deep massage is beneficial for people who are physically active (yoga, pilates, weigh lifting, sports, etc) and those who sit for long periods of time (in front of a computer, driving, at school, etc). Trigger point therapy can reduce pain and stiffness by applying static pressure to the tight and painful areas until a change in the muscle tissue occurs.
