Similar in techniques to Swedish massage, the difference is in the amount of pressure applied to the body to reach deeper layers of tissue, and the repetitive gliding on a specific muscle in order to release muscle stiffness.
Hot Stone Massage
Similar to Swedish but with the difference that clients skin is touched by hot stones (stones are in a temperature range of 100 to 110 degrees) that add deep penetrating heat to relax muscles.
Medical Massage (Therapeutic Massage)
A modality that combines all massage methods and uses ingenuity, on the part of the therapist, to release muscle stiffness, realign muscles, improve posture and muscular function and provide the client with a level of pain relief that lasts long than other massage modalities. (Muscle soreness that lingers for a day or two is common, and usually dissipates with an Epson Salt Bath and by drinking 8-10 cups of water daily after the massage.)
