There are several different modalities to choose from when seeking massage. Here is a synopsis of what is offered at Amy Shouse Acupuncture:
Swedish/Relaxation Massage Therapy
Swedish massage therapy has its roots in the physical therapy techniques of 18th century Europe. Techniques involve long strokes, kneading, tapping, friction and rocking. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, enhances immunity and improves circulation.
Deep Tissue/Therapeutic Massage
Deep Tissue massage uses a combination of techniques derived from different modalities and considers the deeper layers of muscle, bone and tissue. The goal of a deep tissue session is to reduce pain and to improve range of motion and flexibility.
