Deep Tissue

This massage is aimed at the deeper tissue and fascia, also called connective tissue.  Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will be more intense.  It is more a more focused massage as the goal is to work to release chronic muscile tension or knots (also known as adhesions).

Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage.  Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on "meridians".  In Swedish massage, various massage strokes are used to warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesion.  Swedish massage promotes relaxation among other health benefits.

Reflexology Therapy

Aromatherapy is based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds, with claims for improving psychological or physical well-being. It is offered as a complementary therapy or as a form of alternative medicine, the first meaning alongside standard treatments, the second instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments


Chair massage is similar to table massage in most ways, except that instead of laying on a table, clients kneel in a specialized chair equipped with a pad and face cradle to support their head and chest. Most chairs come with extendable armrests for enhanced upper bodywork, and they’re fully adjustable for height and comfort.

Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medical practice involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet and hands. This is done using specific thumb, finger, and hand massage techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a pseudoscientific system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work on the feet and hands causes a physical change to the supposedly related areas of the body.

There is no convincing scientific evidence that reflexology is effective for any medical condition.
