This weeks post is another question that our Registered Massage Therapist Lorraine Tangen gets asked a lot. Read on to hear what she has to say.
Deep tissue vs Swedish massage
Both use the same or similar strokes, but vary greatly with the amount of pressure used. Deep pressure is used to treat chronic pain, and sports related injuries targeting deeper layers of muscle in major muscle groups.
Swedish massage will promote relaxation and reduce tension caused by everyday activities and targets superficial layers of muscle that holds tension.
